Not A Bot!

Two days ago, I posted about an unusual spike in the views of one post on here.
https://beetleypete.com/2020/04/23/a-very-popular-post/

I thought that the large number of views, currently up to 190, must have been caused by a ‘bot’. That was because there were no ‘Likes’ or additional comments on the post, so a natural assumption made by most bloggers, I suppose.

However, I have now received a comment containing the answer to this small mystery.

Dereham memories Facebook page had posted a link to it… Thats how I just got here….

It was a Facebook link, not a bot!

I am not on Facebook, so had no idea it was linked to that group.

The good news is that it was actually people looking at the post!
