Top Affiliate Challenge Server Crashes – Ooops, My Bad!
So I woke up this morning to a phone call.
Caller ID said “Thor Schrock” so of course, I answered. The conversation went something like this:
Me: “Hey Thor!”
Thor: “So congratulations on your surge of traffic. You crashed our server.”
Me: “Uh… oops. Sorry.”
Apparently the TINY paid traffic campaign I started this morning was enough, combined with the normal traffic the site was already receiving, to bring it completely down.
Just goes to show the power one can command when one knows how to get TONS of instant, targeted traffic cheap.
This is gonna be FUN… 😉
