With the US Election, a Landmark Week for WordPress.com VIP

The WordPress.com VIP recently posted about hosting FiveThirtyEight.com over election day (and the day after).

While I has hoping for more numbers, it’s still interesting to see that FiveThirtyEight.com was putting up the same numbers in a single day that some of the highest traffic sites we host put up over the period of a week.

There were mixed feelings on the VIP team last week, when a joke about one of our clients went viral.

Reports of obsessive refreshing of the US election predictions on Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight site, hosted on WordPress.com VIP, began to appear in late October. As Election Day got ever closer, things reached fever pitch.
