Check the stats (if you have installed such a program). It is also available in cpanel (if you have it with your hosting) otherwise download the raw logs.

Usually it is search engine bot / crawler.
yeah, if one of the crawlers is eating too much of your bandwidth, you can always forbidden the access for that one.
I suggest you to check the server logs to get an idea about the source.

Did at 5:30 this morn. They're looking into it!

Just broke 500,000.
Now I know how domains like freeinternet.com get so many hits.
