I placed a statcounter on my Siren Call of Mount Kilimanjaro post on 01/26/09. Up until yesterday at about 10 am, I only had 55 visits to that post....period. I now have 90 additional unique visits since yesterday, which makes me think the article was posted elsewhere. I don't think it's an influx of OS readers because the article is on page 5 of my blog.
My statcounter has no referring links, so I can't find out where these people are coming from. 90% of those visits are from foreign countries and the rest from the USA. I googled the article and only got the OS link. My daughter says that the article must have gone viral, but I have no concept of such things. Is there anything I can do to figure out where they are coming from? The only clue that I have is that some of the ISPs were from schools or universities.
