V for Remote Linking

Filed in: Website Management.

Sometimes events can conspire to give your web site a sudden spike in traffic:

Back in TSV 26, an article called The Comic Connections was published. Amongst other things, this article made mention of the comic book V for Vendetta. The article, including a comic frame from aforementioned comic book, is currently archived on the NZDWFC site.

Released this month is the movie version of V for Vendetta. I haven't seen it yet, but it looks pretty good from the previews. Unsurprisingly, a lot of people are doing web searches for it, and the comic frame from The Comic Connections happens to lie on the second page of Google image search results.

Last month, the archived version of the article got a total of around 260 hits. So far this month, the total hits is around about 2800.

Of course, there's a price to fame: lots of people (mostly on forums) have remote-linked to the comic book frame or, as I've now redirected it to, tubgirl.jpg. Is there no end to the amusement I can get from that jpg?
