Dereferrer service

i've noticed on my sites analytics account that we've started reciving some traffic from a derefferal service called:


We've had quite a lot of traffic so i suspect that a link has been created on a site somewhere that looks something like:

<a href = "http://dontknow.me/www.my-site.co.uk">link </a>

rather than the service being used in an adhoc manner, ie. just typing in  


into the brower address bar.

This is bugging me. I'd like to know why this link has been created. Is there any way i can find out which site this link is on?

Doubtful. The anonymizer service is going to shield the source of the traffic.
additionally, this may not be a single source of traffic. It could be from many different sources, but all using the dontknow.me anonymizer. It would give you the appearance of a false positive that there is a large, single source.
Question has a verified solution.
