Site Meter and referring URLs

One of the cool things about Site Meter is the ability to see a recent visitor's referring URL. In other words, you can see the page they were on when the clicked to visit my site. Quite often, it is a link on one of my fellow bloggers pages. But sometimes you get interesting hits such as this:

http://www.ask.com/blogsearch?...q=is aspartame safe to use&s=r

To disect this, simply follow the link: someone went to Ask.com and typed in the query: "is aspartame safe to use". My recent blog post about Aspartame is the seventh link down. This user clicked on my link and that's how they came to visit my blog. Pretty cool, eh?
