Wired News: Solution for Slashdot Effect? I’ve had two links to my site on Slashdot in the past. On the first one I received about 3000 visits and on the second I received about 8,000 visits. Certainly this traffic was not unmanageable and so I wonder how necessary this solution really is? I’d be interested in hearing from others about their experiences and level of traffic when being posted to Slashdot and if the traffic was a problem. I wonder what the average number of hits a site receives when it is Slashdotted?
