Weekly page visits skyrocket?

Maybe others received the same information but I—finally—got the following answer to my query to Blurb customer support about this issue:    " I have received word that in the process of testing a new search technology which causes some problems."

Not the clearest answer in the world, but at least they figured out something was wrong.   It seems to have been fixed.  Now if I could just tell what the traffic is for current weeks . . . (it’s so miniscule compared to the wacky weeks it almost doesn’t show up on the graph). All good things must come to an end!

My first clue that it wasn’t real is that, with over 400 views for the week so far, there were no new sales—surely someone in that many would want to buy a book!  I’d also love to hear from someone at Blurb about this—one problem it is causing for me is that because the bar for this week is so high, it has reduced the previous week’s bars to barely visible.  Now for several weeks, until this week works its way off the chart, I’ll have to look at the details for each week in order to track views, instead of just glancing at the chart and moving on.  If it’s really an anomaly (which it sounds like it is, unfortunately) maybe the entire week could just be removed from the chart.
