    Why is this happening?  Surely Facebook can't be all that special, right?


    A small test I performed in the past month confirmed the power of Facebook.  I added a simple "Like" button code to one my blogs.  I forgot about it for a time and then one day I checked my stats to find that I had received 4,063 visitors within the space of one day.  The referring site?  Facebook.

    This is the sort of traffic increase you can't ignore.

    So what does this mean?  Well, if you are running Adsense or equivalent ads, your account might bring you a nice surprise:

    Remember, this is only revenue for day 1.  The traffic spike is continuing and it follows that the earnings will continue to rise.
