    Everyone here was a great help when I was getting my website started so I was hoping someone could help me with this question.

    My website (http://www.bowtie-expressions.com/) has been getting a few hits every day. Anywhere from 3 to 15. Then suddenly I started getting over 100 hits everyday, with no increase in sales.:(

    When I looked up the details through Google Analytics I found that over 90 hits a day were coming from the same place - East Walpole, Ma using r & d technologies llc as the provider.

    Does anyone know why someone would be doing this and can it be harmful to my website?

    If so, what should I do?:confused:

    Thank you for any help,
    Monica

    well said Zach,

    usually you could find such trends on wordpress blogs also by replytocomm bots trying to scan and add comments. such ips should be blocked from ISP level.

    cheers

    Shut your website down and burn your computer.

    Yes. That would be a spam. You should block that IP.
