Two of the sites that have seen surges in Web traffic recently.
My unsubstantiated theory is that as summer ends, Web traffic is seeing its usual surge, amplified by the new interest in blogs and Web 2.0 properties.
For the small companies who have effectively had the summer off, it’s time to re-adjust your capacity-planning estimates…upward.
Why? Rising oil prices will reduce travel. Disenchantment with movies will reduce going out. Gourmet take-home will reduce restaurant visitation. And increasing broadband access will increase demand for online services.
Be afraid…and get ready for more traffic. Lots more traffic.
