This has happened to my forums a few times as well. They are most likely search engine spiders. I notice this influx of traffic usually when a new forum is launched. I don't usually get that many spiders on the forum after it's been up for a while. If you are able to view the IP addresses, you can go to WHOIS and find out if they are indeed spiders. If you continue to see a bunch of weird traffic like this and it starts affect performance on your site, you might have someone who's trying to hack the site. That has also happened to my forum before too. It's not fun at all.

Do you have more info on where those 120-300 visitors were coming from? Was it referrals, ads, search engines, emails, etc? You can find out this info on Google Analytics. You'll also be able to see which traffic source dropped so that you can focus your attention there.

August can have drops in traffic, because people typically go on vacations in august, but that's a pretty big drop.

Some temporary fluctuations might be happening all the time and they could be normal things and nothing to worry about.

If you were getting search engine organic traffic earlier then check your rankings, may be some drops.

tracking these people is a good idea also to know what pages they like the most or what interest them, you can do this on google analytics.

It's not odd at all, it is very common for bots/spammers to use this technique. They effectively squat at a site with multiple accounts which then appear to be just dormant. Then they hit you with their spam across a short period of time from multiple registered accounts.

Try looking up some of the email addresses they're using on Google and note any "Stop Forum Spam" links, you'll soon work out these are not as innocent as you think. Beef up your captcha/anti-bot security on your registration page and keep a close eye on sign ups.

In fact http://www.stopforumspam.com/ is a great place to check email address/username combinations & IP Addresses. In addition there are plug-ins which cross refer sign ups with these lists to stop spammers at the source!

Think to yourself, if you're use to 2/3 sign ups per day and you start getting 50 without doing anything differently, Is there a legitimate reason for this? If not, it's likely spam bots.
