Soon I'll be... eaten?

Probably not, but I'm definitely caught in a web. Web traffic interests me, it turns up weird stuff. I don't get many pageviews, but largely they originate in other countries, with pretty strange sources.

Several are "pay per pageview" websites, presumably trawling for new customers with a surprisingly intelligent/guerilla marketing strategy. Most of the rest originate from a forum: Darodar. One Google later and, yep, another clever spider, this time making money from referral schemes.

So I guess it's just me and the digital arachnids 'round these parts. I like to think I'm starting a sort of zoo. Maybe they'll breed...
