Our fearless blog administrator posted yesterday with some statistics on site traffic for the blog. You can read it here.

It is clear that blog traffic has skyrocketed thanks to massive interest in the Syrian refugee issue.

But, I am sure there are some doubters and haters that think maybe the information was doctored or photoshopped. So, I want to give you an easy, crude way to tell if a site is getting lots of traffic from readers.

You simply check to see how long it takes for Google bots to crawl the site and return results for content. Let me give you an example.

Today, at 8:19 AM the administrator posted an article about Apple sales and about Prime Healthcare at 8:27 AM.

Take a look at the screen capture below.

Notice how it was captured at 9:23 AM. Now, take a look at the first result and notice how it has already captured the results for the Prime Healthcare article?

In less than an hour Google was trawling the site because it knows traffic is flowing to it.
