Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Its a long story how I got here but. I dont have access to my stats right now but my tech guy tells me that the site is being slammed with traffic (due to a plug in a major publication) but I see no difference in my adstats.
The question is .. the ad code should make sure that I am getting credit for any clicks even across the other servers even though they are not the same IP. Right? Is there anything that I need to do in this sitution for adsense to function properly?
Anyway the only catch I can see is that if the load balancing results in users seeing different URLs, then Google will have to re-spider everything on the new servers in order to show relevant ads.
But don't be too concerned. Traffic like this is fantastic. It's great potential for being book marked, linked and recomended on forums and just friend to friend. Be thankful they managed to keep your site from going down.
Being hacked is a possibility that I have been concerned with the last 5 days.
I have to get this controlled. because this spike is small compared to whats coming. I have interviews set up with MSNBC and CNBC next week and a couple radio interviews this week. So its going to get quite nuts. Any suggestions to prepare the site for such a spike would also be appreciated.
...Obviously your log files would go a long way towards explaining what's happening.
