All content marketers hope that by adding share buttons, by writing topical unique content, and by consistently working a theme…they will eventually hit the social media jackpot and get massive traffic. When it comes, it can come big. This time it came from Reddit. I’ve seen this a couple of times working for my current employer, but today was a new record.
The traffic is still coming so I don’t yet know what the blog’s daily traffic number is yet, but the below image shows you how many concurrent users we’ve had consistently for the past few hours. I am expecting well over 100,000 visitors for the day.
Sadly I disabled the caching plugin a few weeks back as it wasn’t working correctly and I didn’t have time to configure it. We’ll find out what that’s cost me in additional bandwidth charges tomorrow 🙁
