Yay its Cyber Monday again! What is Cyber Monday? Its the biggest online shopping day of the year. (The first working day after thanksgiving).
Shopping is definitely up this year. Akamai has retailer charts that are updating every 5 minutes. By the way if you’re ever going to rely on a company to give you stats Akamai is a good one ðŸ˜‰ Considering about 20% of the worlds internet traffic goes through Akamai. From their site – “Akamai now routinely delivers more than 200 Gb per second at times”. – SICK!
So anyway… how does your Cyber Monday stack up? Did you prepare for it? My affiliate numbers are about 10x what they were last years Cyber Monday. I think some of that is due to the fact that more people are becoming ok with shopping on the internet. Plus places like amazon.com make it so easy with their “1 click” shopping stuff.
BTW – Woot today has the Sanyo 42â€? HD Ready Plasma Display for only 899$ Thats pretty hot. Pick one of those up then you can play xbox 360 in 1080 res ;). I love Woot! (I wish they had an affiliate program).
If you click play below you can listen to the Woot cast which talks about Cyber Monday.
