    Not sure what is going on, but somehow your site is linked with mine. When I view my Google analytics, I see  thousands of visits from your site in the last month. Over 5,000. As far as I can see there is no connection between our sites and no links on this site to mine. Here is the url with all the hits: http://www.jotform.com/submit.php

    Can you shed some light on this? My website is www.pixelpointcreative.com We build and sell Joomla extensions and templates.

    Thanks

    Hello Dan,

    The url http://www.jotform.com/submit.php is the processor page for forms created using our service. It is also responsible for redirecting people who submit on the forms to the specified url by the form owner.

    My hunch is that there are Jotform users who redirect their visitors to your site for whatever reason they have. Unfortunately, we cannot track down forms that send traffic to your site. I hope you're not taking this as a bad thing, since there is nothing we can do to prevent this from happening. I mean anyone can redirect traffic from our forms to any other sites, right?

    Hope I was able to shed some light into these issue. Thank you and hava a nice day!

    Thanks Neil for the input. Just seemed odd to me. My only problem is that it is skewing my analytics. I tried adding filters to block adding jotform.com and your IP from the analytics results, but that didn't seem to work.
