What's up with all these robocalls that do not speak?

Starting about 5 months ago, we get 10-15 robocalls every day from "invalid number", 800 numbers and assorted area codes.  We pick up and nobody speaks.  Then the line clicks off.  Is this some weird new thing?  What does it mean?

    They're testing the number to make sure it's good before selling to a robocalling ad service.

    If Caller ID doesn't show who's calling, and I don't recognize the number, I don't answer the phone. If the caller leaves a message on voice mail, you can decide whether to return the call or delete the message.
