I can see in my visitorslist that I'm being watched by a freelancers from Belgrade 26 times the last 30 days. So, why? I don't have clue.

Ideas... Feb 13, 2014

- A translation buyer who can't make up his mind (perhaps a bit aboulic indeed)
-- Or a variation of it: a translation organization coming back and forth on your profile, unsure whether or not you would be the best fit for them, with different HR people working under one single IP address
- A crook brewing something (trying to gather and exploit your information)
- A secret lover who can't get enough of seeing your picture almost each and every day

Those are the three-four (more or less) sensible scenarios I can think of.

In any case I wouldn't worry too much in your place considering there doesn't seem to be vulnerable data displayed on your profile... Stay cautious as usual, you may find out soon...

Visitors List Feb 13, 2014

We can not answer that question, only your visitors can. I do not even look at my visitors list at all. Whether this is good or bad, I do not know. Web is a free-for-all tool. God knows who looks at our traces on the web.

Didn't know about it Feb 13, 2014

I didn't realise I had a visitors' list; this post prompted me to look at it for the first time ever. I'm sure how useful it will be though...

I just checked my list and most visitors come 1, 2 or at most 3 times, so 50 is rather a lot. Perhaps the person is looking for a collaborator in your pair but can't make up his/her mind? It might even be a "bot", you never know.

Internet quirks Feb 13, 2014

I get frequent notifications by e-mail that someone is following me on Twitter, Bozong, whatever... places where I don't have an account, most of them that I never heard of. Who cares? The web is crowded with people who haven't got what to do.
