What software is the forum using?
What folder is it installed into?
If it is phpBB and installed in the standard installation directory then the visitors will be spambots and paidposters, looking for opportunities to post spam
Compare the visits to the stats and compare
I have now stopped installing such forums in standard installation directories and this vastly reduces the automated spam
As an example use :
The URL still ends up in google but by using your google account you can remove this group of URL
Once you've done this, then add the link on your website or within the WHMCS New Customer / Account email
You can then go one step further and issue usernames to customers only, removing the register (files) entirely
You can then add customer / username from the Admin area
I dumped my last forum, I spent (and wasted) more time deleting spam and usernames that were nothing to do with genuine customers
