Insurance company keeps tabs on MrDaz.com

While checking my website stats this morning I noticed a very interesting referral from an unknown source. It seems that 7 times between September 8th and September 22nd I have received visitors from a desktop application that checks claims history…

Interesting. This means that my website has a link pasted into it in someone’s application at an Insurance company, and they’ve been regularly clicking on the link to view my site. Obviously unknowing that I can track them. Now the question is, is this Royal & Sun Alliance or is it Direct Line?

Whoever it is, their reference in the database for my site is: 67752 – as you can see from this screen shot of my stats from Google Analytics.

Hello people from the Insurance company! Nice to see you frequent my website. If it’s Direct Line looking at my site, don’t worry, the financial ombudsman will be in touch shortly, but if it’s Royal & Sun Alliance as I suspect, deal with my last letter as instructed. Fix my damn car as you should have done over a year ago and send me the money you owe me.

If you spent more time dealing with your claims and doing your job instead of browsing my (admittedly very amusing) website you wouldn’t have any of the trouble you have now.

  1. Hi am sorry this is no actually about your article . Could you please show me where you got the code for all those social bokmarking sites that you use? thank you great blog.

  2. Sure thing Alfred. It’s actually a WordPress plugin you can find in their plugin directory. It’s called ‘Social Bookmarking Reloaded’.

    Hope that helps!
