Hacking Radio Stats

I was poking around in the Radio rankings and noticed something peculiar.  If you look at this ranking, you'll notice that there are about 100 referers from a business opportunity site.   However, when you go to that site, the weblog in the ranking isn't mentioned or linked anywhere.  Turns out there's a bit of javascript in each page on the bizop site that loads the count GIF from radio.xmlstoragesystem.com.

I'm not sure I see the point.  There are better ways to track webg site usage for non-Radio web sites, so that can't be it.  And I'm not sure what good bolstering your ranking on the Radio Ranking does.  The point is to have people read your weblog, not have a high ranking.  The latter is meaningful only in as much as it is a reflection of the former.
