If you have found yourself here by following a link in a Digg comment then welcome!
I placed that link in a select few comments on Digg to test a theory on the Digg Effect. Namely the idea that by simply having a link on Digg to your site will generate massive amounts of traffic and potentially collapse your server.
This test is based on only having a few links back to your site inside comments rather then a test on an actual story being linked back.
Within a few days time, I will post a new blog entry showing detailed hit statistics generated on Sept 7 2006. I will note the approximate time of the first link being posted in a comment on Digg and show the resulting change in my normal traffic pattern.
I will then do one last test, based on what occurs when an actual story is linked back to your site on Digg.
If you feel you have been duped into coming here then I apologize.
