What is trocadeiro.com?

September 29 2006

My referrers lately have been showing a lot of blog hits originating from trocadiero.com.  In the last week, it's become 3% of all pageviews.

www.trocadeiro.com (not making that a live link for reasons which should become obvious) just looks like one of those spammer search homepages.  There's a link there to corporate structure, which changes to an equally innocuous page that has nothing to do with anything.  A whois on trocadeiro.com doesn't yield anyting useful, taking me to stonediver.com (the same as the "corporate structure" page).

The weirdest thing is that the Dominoblog logs don't show these domains at all.  They're sending something completely different (or bogus) vs. what Google analytics is seeing.

I suppose there's nothing I can do about it, but it doesn't seem like there's any logic to these pageviews.  Of course, logic and spammers/phishers/etc. don't really go together in the same sentence, anyway.
