A Web Mystery

Ten minutes after my last post, I began getting hits from all over the world: 3 from the U.S., 2 from Saudi Arabia, 2 from the United Kingdom, 2 from Brazil, 2 from South Africa, 1 from Thailand, 1 from Germany, 1 from Switzerland, 1 from Portugal, and 1 from Mexico. The hits dropped off in about 3 minutes. What happened?
The Statcounter records list a "referring URL," but the flurry of hits had these long URLS that, if clicked, led to an error message. The referring URLs all started with "" Could it be that my blog was the designated "next blog" when people clicked the link of the same name?
