Referrals Not Matching Backlinks

However, I've also run into situations where people clicked on advertisements (PPC) that were being carried by suspicious sites.
Some suspicious sites also now carry what appear to be random Twitter feeds or other feeds from services that repost links from legitimate posts.
There could be a LOT of reasons for why we see these referers.
I would not be concerned about them, if you're worried that the site might be classified as a "bad neighborhood". It seems to take more than just getting bad links to be classified as a "bad site".

It's called referrer spam.
You're not actually getting traffic from those sites, they have just inserted their links into your stats as they hope they are public and they themselves will get a backlink from your stats page.
