Does that title get your reaction?
The massive traffic spike that knocked Trend Hunter down was caused by the number one search term on the net: Britney Spears... Trend Hunter is very optimized and our Britney Spears Bald Pictures cranked up in the rankings. The impact: 50,000 people in a very tight time frame. Yikes.
In February, we served up 800,000 viewers, but the Britney traffic in an hour was pretty intense. The capacity issue is solved for now, and we have new software in development which will dramatically speed up the site. That way, Bald Britney Spears Pictures Won't knock us offline.
