Update: I checked my logs a bit better and it seems these guys are using my GA code. Lets hope they figure it out before management asks where the traffic went.

StumbleUpon is sending hundreds of visitors to pages on my site that don’t exist. Pages like /limousines-cute.php, /Unique-limo.html and /stumbleviral4.php

The site hasn’t been hacked and the pages give 404 errors so Google Analytics doesn’t even get loaded up so I don’t understand how it can be measuring traffic let alone getting any traffic.

My only idea is that somebody is using my Google Analytics code on their site.

Anybody else seeing this?
