Last week I wrote about a late night Digg and explained that it sent me about 3,500 visitors or so, it actually turned out to be a few thousand more the next day. But let me tell you, a late afternoon Digg sends a hell of a lot more traffic than a midnight Digg.

Yesterday I wrote a story named Google Sending Out More Google Coolers To AdWords Advertisers. Later I saw it was Digged by some user, so I dugg it myself. Then early afternoon it was made popular, and forget about it. Here a screen shot of the Digg at this point in time.

Late Afternoon Digg

Digg sent me over 17,000 visitors just yesterday from an late afternoon home page Digg placement.

Worthless traffic? Probably... But I bet the advertises like the extra eye balls on their ads...
