Solved Flash Flood of Guests???

Post by BravoSix Fri Oct 09, 2020 1:08 pm

So my little forum gets the usual trickle of regular members per day plus the odd guest (from ALL over the world) and usually the "Most Ever Users Online" goes up once the forum newsletter goes out. On Sunday, that was the case. The most ever users increased to 18. Then all of a sudden, yesterday around 1pm PST, we had 41 users appear online. I'm wondering if anyone knows what might have happened to trigger to many guests all at once?

This is normal it can be bots looking in from Google, Bing, Yahoo and other browsers when listed on Google and other search engines.

I Don't think its linked to your news letters as this is just a basic news letter (Email) this is not seen by anyone other then your members.

I just think its a coincidence they show up when you send the news letter and your looking at the forum at the time you may miss it at random times.

Don't worry it is a good thing it means your forum is getting the traffic you want to get new members.

Thanks Ape. Yes, I'm definitely happy about the traffic and exposure of the forum. Just thought an onslaught of guests to that magnitude seemed odd.

And no, nothing was posted to Twitter or FB to my knowledge.
