Fun with spam
Here's something fun which is happening right now: Someone went and uploaded a bunch of porn HTML attachments to jspwiki.org. We, of course, removed them (and blocked HTML attachments right away), but in the mean time, Google had managed to index those.
Now, Google search is driving about 5 hits/second to JSPWiki.org from people who are looking for "shemale bras", "grandma porn", "porn with cheerleaders in it", "asian anal sluts", "naked latinas in bikinis", "girls ejaculating", "interracial gay sex", "teen strippers", and "SEX GIRLS", among other fun and uplifting things.
So, I guess this is one way to get high traffic - just let a spammer upload something to a high-profile website, delete the files right after Google has indexed it, and just wait for the starved, lustful people to pour in. Of course, that would impact the Google ranking in the long term, so I wouldn't exactly recommend it ;-)
The evil person in me is having so much fun with this, that it almost scares me. There is something very satisfying watching logs roll by of people, keywords, IP addresses (not that I would reveal them - that I would consider if not illegal, but it would be at least rather suspicious), and the resulting "404 - not found here" -responses. Ha!
My traffic has literally gone up by a factor of ten. I guess this is one way to stresstest your applications ;-)
