While I would love the fact the others link to my item I can’t find any link on any of these sites from the analytics page:

\\

Any idea why these links (and others) show up as referrals on the analytics page?

I have noticed this once in a while too ;) I think sometimes it could be if someone clicks your name from a comment or something, or also could just be a related item? I’m not entirely sure, I doubt those views convert, I normally get 1-2 from foreign items if that.

It’s a bit off-topic but on my referrals, I can see quite a few links pointing to some buyer’s download page…

It’s not the comment page, it’s the item details page – I can’t leave anything there. Some items have 15 clicks and more. Even third-party-site with a couple of clicks are included.

Doesn’t have much sense if I can’t rely on it

Thats expectable cause buyers click on your item on their download tab

Ok, I was thinking that there was no way to see who purchased my work but it’s exceptionnal I guess, it happens only when they visit the item several times a month.

It’s probably the first page that the user clicked to get to themeforest.

And I agree it’s pointless to us.
