I had a bonanza in terms of page views and visitors yesterday and I have buzzfeed.com to thank for that.
I average a paltry 150 page views per day. On a good day I might hit 200 page views. I generally average out at about 80% of those views will translate into a visitor. However, yesterday I hit 1,009 page views and 784 visitors. These are records for me and I am not expecting that this popularity will be maintained.
When I logged on this morning at about 10.30 I already had some 500 page views.
I thought this to be a little weird seeing that 500 views is about 3.5 times my whole day average. So, I checked out the stats and found that I was getting all these hits from buzzfeed.com. It seems my post of the virtual strip search was linked to a piece on the buzzfeed site. Maybe I will have to start dropping hints to them so they link to more of my stuff.
In any event, buzzfeed.com thanks for making my Friday a statistical record breaker.
