April Fools blog: WordPress punks bloggers—who are you punking today?

I usually log onto the EDA360 Insider blog a few times a day to see how traffic’s going. The main dashboard displays a column graph with the last 16 days of traffic displayed. You can quickly see trends with this display. This morning, I logged on and the column for April 1 was HUGE! It was rapidly approaching 1000 hits before 7 am.

There’s another feature to these bars. You can hover your cursor over the bar and see the actual number. In this case, the bar was 10x larger than the actual number.

I just checked again. Now there’s no bar at all. No traffic for the day. Those several hundred page views: gone.

Not really. Just more April Foolishness from WordPress.

What did you do today to get a smile from your stakeholders?

  1. Okay! Glad I’m not going crazy. 🙂 I logged into my blog this morning and saw the huge bar for the day and was floored. I usually average only 50 views a day, but April 1st showed about 500 views. Nearly fell out of my chair when I first saw it. Haha!
