Concrete5 stats

I’ve got a couple of sites using concrete5. After some learning curve time, I’m starting to get it. One thing that I wonder about is the stats for the sites. I had a basic html site for one of them and then converted to concrete5. Before the conversion, I was getting less than a 100 hits a week (yep, I’m not real good on site promotion).

Immediately after installing concrete5, the number of requests shot up to over 16,000 requests for 2300 pages. I’m pretty sure the increase is not just because the site looks so much better than it used to. In fact, the dashboard on concrete5 shows 15 to 30 visitors a day which is more realistic. Any idea as to why the Dreamhost stats would have such an enormous number of hits?
