I got Dugg, 'Crunched, etc.

It looks like I stumbled upon something interesting last week, judging by the traffic bump Neologies saw over the weekend. Take a look at what that looks like in Shawn Hogan's Geovisitors tracker above. Click the image for a larger view.

I saw an initial bump when TechCrunch picked it up on a tip from Kristopher Tate of Zooomr. It started picking up momentum as a result of a post on Digg. The image you see above is a result of the second wave brought on by the Diggers. It's a 24-hour capture representing most of Saturday's traffic. It wasn't a big Digg as Diggs go, but it brought me quite a few new visitors.

If you're interested in using Shawn's Geovisitors tool on your blog or website, make sure to check it out. It's a pretty slick usage of the Google Maps API that he's offering it for free. The best part is that using it is literally a cut and paste operation. Simply head to Digital Point's website for more information and a code snippet to get you started.
