StumbleUpon Brings Me More Than 500 Unique Visitors Over The Last 24 Hours
At first, I thought I am seeing things, but I noticed that the FireStats that I installed on my site revealed that 696 visitors has visited my blog during the last 24 hours. This cannot be true because I never have more than 10 visitors at any 24 hour range.
On further investigation, I found out that it was StumbleUpon that has been sending those traffic. Apparently, the Baby Panda article is the main reason for the great volume of incoming traffic (check out the screenshot on the right).
In addition, the number is still rising. After publishing this post, the number of visitors have increased by another 10. Hence, thank you so much, StumbleUpon; now that my site is more visible in the Internet regime.
New Update: 3 Hours Later
Three hours later, I went back to check my visitors’ statistics. Guess what? The number of unique visitors over the past 24 hours have risen to more than a thousand (see attachment above). Trust me, there is no Photoshop in this post, I merely took a screenshot of it.
Another Update: Just After Lunch, 2 Hours Later
I just returned from lunch break, which is two hours since my previous update. Guess what, another further 200 more unique visitors driven to the site by StumbleUpon. All simply just because of this Cute Panda Picture article. This is just starting to get exciting!
Final Update: 6 Hours Later After Lunch
This could be my last and final update about FireStats for today, before some more people get annoyed at me for having generated that much traffic. In Summary, the last 6 hours, since lunch, has shown the number of visitors saturating at about 1,400 people. I believe the traffic could have peaked by now and it will be falling very soon, if not already started falling.
Last but not least, whether if it’s a comment or criticism, I appreciate you for dropping a comment on my blog site. Have a great weekend!
