If any of you frequent the Yahoo! portal, you may have noticed that Yahoo! picked out V for Vendetta as part of it's Buzz Log.
It appeared towards the middle of the main page and it led to a small article noticing the increase in Vendetta
related traffic of late: Searches on the film rose 230%, thanks to an inspired trailer and new photos hitting the Web. Star Natalie Portman jumped 448%, and searches on the unrecognizable Hugo Weaving surged 1,041%.
Presumably, these stats reflect search results for Yahoo! and not search engines in total. Still, not too shabby.
Yahoo!'s eggregious omission of mentioning the -.094% increase in traffic to my own Vendetta website
was at first insulting, but obviously I can see why Yahoo! wouldn't want to anger Warner Brothers by calling attention to my visually and contentually (sic) superior web site. I forgive them, of course.
