I got a record high traffic yesterday(23rd) and today everything is back to normal. When looking at my stats, it seems the US levels are still the same as yesterday but the rest of the world is way down. So that's what balances everything out.
Also, my traffic has been growing since the end of October. Sometime during January I saw a bigger increase from other countries compared to the US, I think it was called zombie here. Honestly, I would love to see an increase across the board and not a rise in one country and a drop in another.
