Conservapedia went from less than ten references in Google search engines to 188,000 in only about a week. This caused our page views to increase a hundred-fold. Much greater computing speed to handle the huge volume should become available by around the end of this week (around March 2).
Usage is from diverse sources, with no single website or search engine referring more than 15% of the visitors. Virtually all of the numerous vandals have been blocked, and almost all of their vandalism reverted. Amidst the influx, the entry on faith ranks number 6 in most-visited sites. That's encouraging.
The New Scientist and Congressional Quarterly publications have done interviews for potential articles about Conservapedia. Liberal blogs are trying to make fun of Conservapedia, but that has just added to the interest. We'll see how long it takes for them to figure that out.
Thanks for everyone's patience during this growth. Speed does increase here notably after business hours, indicating that many visitors are browsing Conservapedia from work. Could it be that our liberal visitors are not really working on their jobs????

- A few questions- what do you mean by "computing speed"? Do you mean bandwith or do you mean server load or what? Second, I'm confused by your claim that "Speed does increase here notably after business hours, indicating that many visitors are browsing Conservapedia from work". I presume you mean based on the North American time zones (but even that is quite a few hours). As someone editing not on that regular a schedule, I have not noticed any such speed up (but when access is occuring is something that you should be able to figure out). Furthermore, even if this were true, it is unclear to me why you presume that this access is more likely due to "liberal visitors" rather than any other type of visitor.

- Our Google results are growing by thousands every day. We had 332,000 results when I looked a few minutes ago. Also, the site is running so much faster today! ~ SharonS 18:10, 1 March 2007 (EST)
- The speed should remain fast now, thank God! It's a pure joy at this speed.--Aschlafly 18:50, 1 March 2007 (EST)
