The Hackaday Effect

What happens when a blog post appears on the Hackaday website.

Today one of my projects was added to the popular hacking site Hack a Day for the Raspberry Pi solar logging project.

Normally the blog receives on average 30-40 visitors and around 80 page views per hour.

Within minutes of the post appearing on Hackaday the number of visitors and page views had a huge increase by over 800% with over 1800 page views in the first hour and slowly dropping back down over the next few hours.

I have received a lot of questions and comments about the project today and I will try to answer them all as soon as possible!
