This morning when I was listing a bunch of new bedding a very strange thing happened. One of the items I had listed starting getting tons of hits. I mean lots of them. By the time it finished its little run I had received 238 hits in a half an hour. Isn't that weird? Just thought I throw this out for the heck of it. Have a great day. Vicky

Sounds like you had a key word in the title and or description that is HOT. Meaning searches have that word or words flagged to be notified instantly when it's used on the internet.
These are bots .. nothing to get really excited about in my books. It's like if you do a tweet about an item - within seconds you have a ton of hits.
Not one of them is a real person.

If you use Google Analytics - look there and you should be able to see more aboput where the hits came from.

Google Analytics won't show bot hits.

I had that happen on a book I listed. I had 22 hits within a couple of minutes. I thought that many hits was good in that lenght of time but yours was even better.

I sort of thought maybe someone just kept hitting the refresh button on that item.
Does it work to tweet about an item? I mean do you get sales from tweeting?
