For starters, this is actually a nice message. It means that somebody else has entered your blog into our database. No they have not claimed it as theirs but because they wanted to compare themselves against your blog, they entered your blog’s URL into our system to trace.

In turn, we may have been collecting data about it for a while (see also database – what is being tracked and included). As a result, we can provide you with some pertinent information allowing us to compare your blog(s) with several others (trend data) from day 1.
