According to my analytics I have had 894 hits today which is almost 4 times more than last Saturday. 468 have been direct hits although I haven't been on the front page or on storque. I was featured in an article for MSN Money, but that shows up by itself, so that isn't causing the direct traffic. Any ideas on how I can find out what is driving this increase in direct traffic? Thanks

Thanks! I'm in treasuries, but no more than usual. I thought about other features but I am most curious about the Etsy direct traffic. If they came to my shop through outside features, would it show up as direct?
thanks
