This little blog usually only gets around 100 - 150 hits on a normal day...
Since the hysteria that is Crimewatch was first advertised, the number of hits has risen tenfold.
It seems the general public's curiosity has truly been awakened this time around. It's like travelling back in time to 2007 when we all sought sanctuary for our doubts and wavering thoughts. It's happening again.
I've just read on Blacksmith's blog that visits to the McCann Files website are numbering a collosal 100,000 hits per day. Pamalam recently posted on Maddie Case Files that people were arriving in their droves to view the Smith statement at 100 hits per minute! The number of members on the Facebook Controversy group has leapt to almost 11,000.
Have the public finally had their bellies full? The last straw? All this interest due to a BBC production, not some book about the case. No, no they can't say that this time around.
Sometimes on the blog feed, it's possible to see what a person has searched for via certain search engines. Here are a few of the things that people are now seeking answers for...

Interesting, hope these searchers find the answers they're looking for. And to the person who searched for 'the bunion on my left foot'... I have no idea how you ended up here, so sorry that I couldn't help and hope you've found some relief...
If you're interested in the case, here are some sites that you should consider having a browse..
Or you could read the English translation of Goncalo Amaral's book, the Truth of the Lie. From what I can gather, it's just a condensed version of the official files. We'll have to wait for confirmation on that one though...
