What Happens When You Hit the Digg Homepage (Video)
Just yesterday I posted a video about how I use the Performancing P-Metrics service, and then shortly thereafter when another one of my articles hit the Digg Homepage it occurred to me that I should take a video of the PMetrics “Spy” function to demonstrate what actually happens when 5,000 people per hour are visiting a Web site.
Incidentally, the video was taken only 45 minutes into the daily stats on MBL, but as of 10 hours later there have been well over 40,000 visits to this page alone.
If you do the math, that is more than one visitor each second for a sustained 10 hour period. And this is will continue for at least the remainder of the day.
So, as far as I know, here is the first ever video demonstration of the “Digg Effect” live and uncut. In it I capture what is happening on the Digg homepage while simultaneously showing the MyBlogLog summary statistics and the P-Metrics real time Spy function.
