Unusual Traffic in Analytics

Advert test
#1
For the last number of days I've been seeing a lot of traffic to my website from certain locations in US, which I thought was unusual. Further investigation reveals the traffic is from gpotato.net and the bounce rate is 100% for all this traffic. So it looks a bit weird and something I should probably try and stop.

I've google it but could only find out that it is probably related to content stealing, possibly something to do with ebay?? Gpotato is a big gaming site so I'm unsure why the traffic would be coming from there.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check the raw logs - it might give you a clear indication of what they're doing

I've often found 3rd party sites hotlinking to images on forums and ebay listings :)
