The end of the world: an experiment

Standard

This end of the world thing is a gift that keeps on giving – as I have a story headlined “End of the world is nigh: 2 June 2011”, the site has had a surge of visitors coming from search engines looking to see if the world is going to end tomorrow (it’s not, in case you are worrying).

Is there a reason why 2 June has been chosen or is it the case that there are people looking every day for the prospect that the world will end tomorrow?

I will now write an article suggesting that, in fact the world won’t end on 2 July 2011 and see if that generates a whole shed load of traffic on 1 July…
