This morning I got the 25-view announcer bronze badge for a question on Arqade. It was a pleasant surprise, since I think the code I wrote for Kittens Game automation was pretty neat and I'm glad that people seem to enjoy it.
But then I noticed I got a hat. So I looked at the hat, and it said I had a gold badge! So I went to my network profile and, all in the span of 24 hours, I got the bronze, silver, and gold badges for sharing the link of a post. Wow, this is fascinating, I thought.
It is certainly odd for a link of mine to get 1,000 clicks in a single day! It would be really good to know where these clicks came from. Surely the browsers that click in have some referer data or something.
Is it at all possible to investigate the source of these clicks? Because I haven't posted anything recently, so clearly someone else has shared something that has my referral code in the URL, and I'd really like to see where that is!
