Earlier this week one of our programers noticed ExploreUK experienced a large spike in traffic--7316 hits from 4500 unique visitors on one day. The most commonly visited digital object was this photograph of Patricia and Priscilla Barnstable.
Why were so many people interested in this image? Where were these users coming from?
After some investigation, it was found most of the hits originated from an article on Jezebel, a popular feminist blog. Click here to see why these two ladies are so popular! And if you'd rather not scroll through and read all the captions, search for "Kentucky born and bred".
It's always interesting and often surprising to see how our material is referenced.
