Anyone know what this means?google.com/aclk
I keep seeing this as a referrer, all coming from my PPC campaign but different IP.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

It's a click from an advertisement. "Ad CLicK". We leave it in there so you know it wasn't just from google.com root domain, but we strip off the query parameters because they're always very long, completely unique for each click, and indecipherable outside of Google's sofftware.

Here's my explanation... Let me know if it is completely off base. It appears that Google uses two different methods to bring a visitor to your site when you use AdWords:
Method 1 - Uses a link like www.google.com/url?q=widgets&url=/aclkLotsofIndecipherableParameters
Method 2 - Uses a link like www.google.com/aclk?LotsOfIndecipherableParameters
Clicky shows Method 1 as "google.com widgets"
Clicky shows Method 2 as "google.com/aclk"
If you add these up, it should equal the number of clicks that AdWords is reporting.

Clicky Admins - If what I posted above it correct, I'd like to ask you to revisit stripping off all the query parameters on the google.com/aclk links. It seems like the query string is indeed available - it is just towards the end of the URL. Let me know if you see this or if you need more information.

I would like to second zovall's request as it is very useful to be able to know the actual query that generated the click through.
