Unexplained Traffic Surge?
OTB is experiencing significantly higher-than-normal traffic for a Saturday morning. Most oddly, the vast majority of the referrers are given as “Unknown” in SiteMeter, meaning they’re not coming from a search engine or another website but rather just typing the URL in their browser or using a bookmark.
The surge started around midnight. Did OTB get mentioned in some major newspaper or television show that I’m unaware of?
Update: It’s been “explained” more or less. There’s a sudden and substantial resurgence of interest in Angelina Jolie and, particularly, photos of her tiger tattoo. The referrals are coming from all over the place but not showing up as search engine or site links. Most odd.
