Don't know what to make of it, but I see a share of 5% for AOL.de, plus 1% AOL.com on a well established german ecommerce site, that's an up of 3-4% from previous months...
Anomaly or trend?

Just checked and yup, I got AOL.de moving up to a 6th biggest referrer in October from 8th in August.

Could be a trend. Have they done some extraordinary marketing in Germany lately or what's your take heini?

I see also a rise in AOL traffic for the one site I could do a quick test.

Reasons? AOL started a new series of TV commercials with famous german comedians several weeks ago, but I'm not sure if this could be the reason for this rise.

And to every household in Germany the CD-ROM AOL8.0 was sent...many people install, and are using the AOL-Search...
