Hey Everyone,


I have a website that I abandoned a while back, it was one of my first ones. It normally gets very few visits per day. Last week I had a huge traffic spike and received 290, 216, 194, and 98 visitors over a four day period, but after that my traffic trend went back to normal.

Any ideas what caused this?

    I had this happen a couple times when an email type magazine picked up a couple posts I had written. Nice bonus traffic!

    Google Analytics will give you answers to questions like this. Social bookmarking sites cause most of the spikes for me.
