Question: which analytics tool are you using?

Observation: Direct/None sounds like you might be using google analytics. Google analytics, and most other analytics tools, put traffic in the Direct/None bucket when they can't figure out a referrer. It may be that somebody typed in the url directly, or it may also be some type of glitch in some web code sending traffic to the page and blocking referrer information to the log files or to the tracking script (depending on your analytics tool).

Offer: I would be glad to take a stab at figuring out what is causing this spike in traffic, but I need some type of access to the analytics system or log files. I have been doing web anayltics for the past 15-ish years, so I might have a few tricks to try to figure it out (Google Analytics, Webtrends, ClickTracks, Coremetrics, etc.). I am in the minion forum, have done some small things for Cassie, and will keep my eye on my email in case you want to send me a moosage. I give my word to treat all data as confidential.

Hope that helps!

I feel there is an opprotunity to spread the idea of hugelkultur via social media to start- up young community gardens. new community based garden pop up in cities across the gobal annually, most of these gardens create social media pages very early in there development. If these gardens/ media groups could became awhere of hugelkultur and persuaded to create a single hugel as pracites could create a buzz back to said community socail media page and linked article . I'm personally developing a community garden and have installed micro hugels and buried wood plots, Im hoping the these radically diffrent examples of gardening will attact buzz to our media page and in return create awareness about permaculture.

Follow up to the National Contest for best College Project.. see page 7 here ... the Permaculture Project at Amherst College won!  Got 60,000 votes... FAR moe than any other.  Here's a TED talk with an excellent review of what it was and how they did it.  A good how-to video to share with a newbie, as an intro to Permaculture.

 
If you're gonna buy things, buy this thing and I get a fat kickback:
