Can Someone Explain This…Weird Blog Stats

So, here’s what I see when I look at my all-time blog stats:


<img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-382" class="size-full wp-image-382 lazyload" title="Screen Shot 2011-08-16 at 5.10.48 PM" src="https://ericswyatt.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/screen-shot-2011-08-16-at-5-10-48-pm.png" alt="Blog data screen shot" width="500" height="241" />

This is a screen shot of the WordPress stats for my blog. Dorothy Parker and James Thurber are cleaning up...


I’m closing in on 10,000 page views, and two posts on the stories of Dorothy Parker and James Thurber have accounted for most of those views, more than even the home page, where most people land if they follow a link to a blogpost from some other site.

What I can’t quite figure out is this: Is this legitimate traffic, or is there some D.P & J.T. auto-bot out there running up web-site hits for these two authors? And if the traffic is NOT legit, what on earth is the point?
