While I appreciate Doug's thumbs-up, I don't think I can take credit for 3000 page views!

My first guess for a sudden bump was a change in Google's search algorithm, but nothing major has been announced lately.  Julee's suggestion of new external links seems more likely: any breakdown in the stats based on referring domain?

I've been looking at the stats for WPD today, and there was a nice rise in the total number of visits last week. http://monosnap.com/image/KQKmYJ4CtZVAppDmG63SSJQfhEQmcM.png


The total visits have been hovering around 18k (give or take 1k) for the last six months (except over the holidays), and then last week's total was 21,500.

Anyone know what happened?
