We all know that if you get your site or a glimpse of your URL on the news it immediately equals traffic. If you are expecting that many visitors please be sure your server will be able to handle the influx of traffic. Site1 was reviewed by ITWeb a while back and it became one of the slowest sites on the internet for the days to follow. What is site1? 🙂
Eg: eNews prime time just announced the new seven wonders of the world will be voted for by us on the website new7wonders.com. The first thing I did, before checking my mailboxes, was to check the site out & 7(no pun intended) server timeout messages later I finally saw the site & tried to cast my vote.

This website offers you the opportunity to participate in the first-ever global vote to elect the New 7 Wonders of the World. This vote will culminate with a live, worldwide, telecast on January 1 2007 to announce the New 7 Wonders of the World.
The site is way too slow. I’ve got a year so I’ll vote when the fuss is over. The internet should be one of the great wonders of the world! Would you not agree?
