This is weird. Yesterday my traffic on my side got some new traffic. The website stats showed me (after a little bit of digging), the following figures.
Traffic with all the same keyword: “taggedmail profile”. There were also some visits for the “tagged mail profile”, but much less. The traffic initiated from different countries, but the majority came from Portugal. I normally never get traffic from Portugal. All traffic landed on this page: http://blog.dampee.be/?tag=/mail+profile. It’s true, the tag “mail profile” is there. But I doubt it was what they where searching.
I don’t know what it means. I search Google, I searched Bing. But couldn’t find any reasonable explanation. My guesses are:
- spam bots searching for user profiles for email addresses.
- some company takeover of which i am not (yet) aware
- someone interested in buying taggedmail.com (currently pointing to tagged.com)
After these ideas came up, I started searching TechMeme, Mashable and TechCrunch. But none of them supplied me with some answers, expect for the CSE from Techcrunch: How do I get rid of tagged spam from taggedmail.com? Maybe some spam was send out from the domain taggedmail (.com, .net, …). But what with the profile keyword?
If someone has any idea, I’ll read it in the comments.
