Traffic related to The Heath Ledger Experiment continues to decline across the long weekend, the exact opposite of my admittedly ill-informed speculation. From a peak of 1,970 unique human visitors daily, it’s dropped to 1,227.
However that’s still well above the typical figure of around 500 unique humans daily which prevailed before this Experiment and The Madness of Corey Worthington Delaney.

Bear in mind, this is a report for the entire calendar month, and we only started this experiment on 23 January. If we’re looking at current traffic, Heath Ledger is clearly what people are looking for.
I’ll continue poking at the numbers… more soon!
