Hits to this webpage during the recent Muzi Mei mania:

A bar graph generated by my counter service shows that hits peaked on November 30.

To get an idea of how the hits of November 30 dwarfed normal traffic, here is the hit count starting on November 15: 47, 32, 46, 22, 41, 93, 72, 43, 51, 55, 30, 43, 62, 162, 265, 1457, 526, 69, and 91 today. The reason is that I was the fourth and fifth results of a Google search for "mu zimei" when the story broke, first in Singapore and then in the New York Times. The little blip on November 20 was when the story was getting big in China, and a few people searched for her name in English. Simon reports a similar effect.
