My traffic went through the roof yesterday, and I couldn’t figure out why. All I could see was the Google Adsense page impressions number climbing into the stratosphere. The reason turned out to be Reddit. Reddit is another social bookmarking site, not based on tags, but votes. Something like CommonTimes. The post in question, Hugh Gallagher’s funny college admissions essay, generated as many hits in one day as two good days for me previously.
