whois.sc traffic source

I have only had a chance to put up one lousy adsense site (my sig). I checked the traffic log today and surprisingly I found dozens of unique visits from whois.sc in about two weeks time. Apparantly people are checking the whois data of this domain. Would anyone please suggest a smart way to deal with this kind of visits? Something put into the whois data?

If they wanted to know WHOIS info, they wouldn't be visiting your website ... the two aren't connected.

Re: whois.sc traffic source

The traffic log shows referring site as
http://www.whois.sc/xn--lckh1a7bzah4vue.com
and http://www.domaintools.com/xn--lckh1a7bzah4vue.com

whois.sc has active link and site description on the top of the whois data.

I think people are trying to retrive the whois data and from there they click the active site link. This means that there are actually more people than the traffic log shows are tryong to obtain the whois info since many whois search sites does not list an active link to the site. I am rather confident that many of these visitors are local Japanese. Should I put in some valuable info into my whois such as a link of IDNF etc?

More interesting thing I just found out from http://www.whois.sc/xn--lckh1a7bzah4vue.com:

This domain has alexa rank of 3,835,646, which means there are quite a few people are really spying on this domain. Thay trying to gather all infos related with the domain/site.

Sorry, to repeat in case you didn't understand, no kind of spider would attempt to retrieve your WHOIS data from your website. They are looking for other things - title, meta tags, page size, etc.

Your logs clearly show the referring URL as www.whois.sc - believe me, its not a person there typing your URL in - its a script / program / spider, whatever, its just them collecting data about your website - no more, no less.

Re: whois.sc traffic source

No the referring url is http://www.whois.sc/xn--lckh1a7bzah4vue.com
I am not saying a person is typing my url in. I am saying that people search whois info for my domain at whois.sc, and in the resulting page (which is this one: http://www.whois.sc/xn--lckh1a7bzah4vue.com) they are clicking the link to my site.

I also have other websites that get thousands of daily yahoo and google spider visits, but the log only shows that the traffic sources are from yahoo or google, not from a specific yahoo/google page (eg gamebooks.com 300k pages indexed by google). Also, none of my sites is showing even a 5% of the whois.sc traffic that クレジットカード.com is getting.

I think you may very well be right, but I just can't explain why there are so many visits from whois.sc/url.

All I know is whois.sc definitely do visit sites on a regular basis - if they didn't, where would they get all the website info from??? They have been collecting such data for years as far as I know.

Re: whois.sc traffic source

The ultimate compliment is clicks from whois lookups from people trying to register your domain.
