Fun Ping Stats: One Day in August

I was reviewing some of our traffic stats here at Ping HQ this morning. I sent them over to MacMichael for review and he said, “Huh. What’s the deal with this one day in August?”

And sure enough, there was one day in August where traffic jumped. Just one day.

Google Analytics pointed out that it was from a search for… ready?… hurricane drinking game. And what hurricane happened in August 2011? Irene, of course.

Apparently people really do love drinking games during natural disasters. I’m just glad the Ping was able to hunker down and provide what people needed.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
