Odd Traffic Sources
For the past couple of weeks I have noticed that my readers are coming to my page from some awfully odd referring pages. Here is an example for today:
EDIT: Took out names
Why/How in the world is Lasik-Centers referring people? I have had other strange ones. Nearly all are from overseas.
Is this something I need to be worried about?

I think they're fakes in the sense that they represent robot-generated traffic. The folks running the bots figure that by putting their name in your logs 1 of 2 things might happen. 1, you might click it and give them traffic. 2, you might publish your logs or post about it in a forum, thus creating a link to their site.
In your case, 2 worked and they won.

That's a known backlinking "spam" (?) method of driving traffic. I was caught off guard with it once by this guy's site: Tip of the day: Creating Youtube backlinks ? Glowleaf
But I actually enjoyed the novelty of it, and have been following him off and on for a while
