Recently a question of mine got an unusual surge in upvotes, I guess I may have been linked from some high visibility blog or something like that.

Is there any way to know the traffic sources for a question?

This might not be the most accurate, but you can search for link backs on google like this.

Also, I'm not sure which question you're referring to, so I used your most viewed question as an example.

enter image description here

https://www.google.com/#q=link:+http:%2F%2Fstackoverflow.com%2Fquestions%2F4533884%2Fis-using-readlines-in-python-bad-code

  1. Just copy the URL of the question you want to know about.

  2. Go to Google

  3. Type link:

  4. Paste the URL after link: (space)

  5. Click search

I'm guessing you got a lot of views for your most viewed question from the bitcoin result.
