Somebody placed a link to our HitTail Buzz radar at famous social bookmarking site StumbleUpon.com on September 25 and we suppose that it was at its Stumble Buzz page. As a result, we received 374 visits and 646 pageviews from eager Stumblers.  The burst was so intensive that we suspected even a Denial of Service (DOS) attack. During 1.5 hours, the radar was hit over 250 times. Then it is a bit faded away:

When the dust settled, we had a record number of daily pageviews since we started using Google Analytics on November24, 2006 – 1163 and the largest number of visits since February 26, 2007 – 706. We couldn’t locate who placed the link but we know that Mike Levin – a guy behind HitTail – has link to our radar at his StumbleUpon page. 

The StumbleUpon burst proved a huge power of social networking sites in escalating online traffic. Utilization of this power and promoting websites through the social networking sites was dubbed as “SEO 2.0”. We were so amazed by this burst that l decided to study this new phenomena by launching our own SEO 2.0 radar.
