Stats mystery solved

I never bothered to set a "robots" text file for my site, which explains some of the peculiar search results I get occasionally.

I noticed that I'd gotten 50 hits for "windows xp activation crack italian" as a search term, so I entered it into Google. Amazingly, my site is up toward the top of the hits, but the page it goes to is the stats page itself. It appears that once one person gets a strange search onto the stats page, it ends up being self-fulfilling, since the robots that index web pages hadn't been told to exclude the stats directory. That's been all fixed now, though. Of course, the Google cache won't expire for months or years, so I'll keep getting strange hits but at least now they won't continue to multiply I hope.
