Russell Brand worth a million?

 

Another example of the power of the “Like”. Russell Brand caused a bit of a stir in an appearance on the “Morning Joe” show on MSNBC. Our friends in Entertainment.ie posted a YouTube clip of it and it seemed to take off. Google Analytics shows that 90% of the traffic for that page is coming from Facebook and with 98,000 “likes” that certainly makes sense. Total page views should hit a million today which is huge traffic in a single day for one story on the site. The site runs on a bespoke CMS built by Fusio and is hosted on our own servers which managed to handle the traffic without any major issues even when it was serving up about 10 pages a second for that page alone.
