Records continued to tumble on Robert Lindsay this past week.
Best of all, a new record for highest week ever was set. The old record was totally smashed, with the new record surpassing it 125% or 207,000 hits. Wow! That’s an average of 53,236 hits a day.
Old record: 165,079: October 2-8 New record: 372,649: October 9-15
On Monday, the first day of the week, a new record was immediately set. The old record for 4th highest day, set only two days before, fell. The new record surpassed it by about 5,000 hits. These two articles were once again popular, especially the one about the supposed nude photos of Ann Dunham.
In addition, Alpha Unit’s latest brought in a lot of visitors, unusual because her pieces are not usually big hits (only a few posts are big hits on the site). This suggests that Alpha Unit may be getting more popular. Good for her!
Old record: 29,472 November 7 New record: 34,531 November 9
The next day, November 10, a new record for highest day ever was set. The previous record was set only six days before. The new record surpassed the old one by about 3,000 hits, or 10%. Once again, these two posts were popular from Korea. This one is a Korean translation. It’s pretty amazing that a translation can drive so much traffic, but I am having excellent luck with carefully crafted translations. More bloggers should consider carefully crafted translations as potential traffic drivers.
On this site, this post was once again popular.

The very next day, November 11, the new record for highest day was immediately smashed again, this time by about 8,500 hits, or almost 20%. This is the first time we ever passed 50,000 hits in a day. The traffic drivers were similar to the ones the previous day, and once again, most of the traffic was from Korea. On this site, the Ann Dunham Nude Pics? post was once again popular. I am not sure what that’s all about, but I think some of these Birther crazies are latching onto the “Obama’s Mom was a porn star” meme.

A new first place record was set on Thursday, November 12, passing the old record set only one day before by over 5,000 hits. The Korean traffic once again drove this huge day.

A new record for second highest day was set on November 13, breaking the old one set only two days before. The Korean translations were a big hit on the old site, especially this one.
Old record: 56,786 November 11 New record: 59,301 November 13
A new fourth highest day record was set on November 14, breaking the previous record set on four days prior. That is extremely high traffic for a Saturday. The Korean translations were a huge hit on the other site.
Old record: 48,031 November 10 New record: 53,535 November 14
New third place record was set on November 15, breaking the previous one set only four days before. Ann Dunham Nude Pics? was once again popular on the WordPress site. The Korean translations continued to go like gangbusters. Commissioning them was a great idea. This is extremely high traffic for a Sunday, usually the slowest day of the week.
