Why might my website be getting a ton of foreign traffic?

    Recently, I have been getting a majority of my traffic from eastern bloc, Ukraine, Russia, also Germany, China, Czech Republic, Poland and Moldova.

    My website is 100% in English, and I see no backlinks from big foreign websites, so I was wondering what might be going on.

    I should also note that USA, australia, canada, and the UK used to be my top visiting countries.

    You probably made it up as a lame excuse to spam us.

    I could see that being the case if I actually linked to the page in my post or asked you to visit my website.

    If you are running SMF all that foreign traffic are just spammers who are going to register and post porn and Viagra/knock off ads on your site.

    Enjoy :)

    Besides is that traffic per hour, day, week, month?

    Edit: This month along I have seen over 100 countries on my site.
