While I was checking the stats of my plasma globe tricks instructable, I had notice my instructable has so many referrers! I did not know that instructables has referrers! Does anybody has referrers on their instructables?

Check out my "Amazing plasma globe tricks that you never knew before!!!" instructable if you never been there before...

Most instructables are like this. Each of these links indicates 1 person who came here from an external page. They add up, I guess :D

google.com isn't too helpful, although some of the other ones (.fr) may be of some use. More importantly, look for non-search engine pages, like this

That is awesome! I thought it meant the instructable showed up in a search (for the search engine referrers), not that someone actually came from the page. :D

What's really cool is when you find a non-search-engine referral. It means that somebody has blogged your project, or referred to it in an article. It's sometimes quite revealing - the number of popular blogs and magazines that get their stuff from other blogs rather than find it for themselves.

It's pretty mad, some of mine have giant lists of them, remember that if it went google.com four times in a four it would show one of them then the next different one so you can't tell, some 'ibles almost exclusively get views from non 'ibles searches...

Yeah I've seen it before. Note that most of them are from Google or other search engines that are indexing your page.
