Shining Parody Trailer Traffic Spike
Yesterday I received an odd traffic spike from a mysterious source. I received a flood of visitors — several hundred every hour — from people who reached my blog through a Yahoo! search for “shining parody trailer.” (My post about that trailer is the second result in that search.)
I can only assume that this exact search was somehow featured on or near Yahoo’s main page. Either that or Oprah told her audience to go to their computers, pull up the Yahoo search engine, and type in the words “shining parody trailer.” (A possibility along those lines seems much less likely; all the searches are Yahoo searches, typed the same way.)
I haven’t figured out for sure exactly what happened. Does anybody know?
Anyway, assuming the trailer is still available, you should watch it if you haven’t already.
