August 19th 2010
During our lag issues a few weeks ago we removed the traffic stats at the bottom of the page. These were also causing some issues with the site loading very slowly for some users. One thing we didn't count on was that we had also removed the "widgets" that these sites use to record the views of the page.
What this means is that since August 4th none of the page views we had registered with any of the traffic rankings and our traffic appeared to go down.
We have now put these markers back and our traffic numbers should again begin to climb and go back to where they once were and higher.
