    Logged in to find my ~3000/day traffic had shot up to ~7,000.

    It's not just one hub either; I have a sea of red arrows.

    Anyone else?

    Was there a Google update?

      Yup, WryLilt, we are all recovering from the sudden surge of joy to the sharp drop to stat reality. sad

    I thought maybe a Panda update happened too. What a disappointment.

    Even I was wondering about that... I am disappointed that the traffic was not real...

    Stats.  If they're not stuck, they're inflated!

    I thought we'd returned to the old glory days for a moment.

    As David Bowie said, "We can be heroes, just for one day."

      That is interesting, I still have a sea of red arrows in spite of the stats having updated since yesterday.  I took screen shots so I had some proof.   I put it down to lots of people being at home yesterday as I could see the views on real-time.  Seemed pretty genuine to me at the time.
