Load Balancing and Failover Improve Hosting

SEO Chat, “Load Balancing and Failover Improve Hosting”

“Everyone wants their traffic to go viral, but most dont realize that if they do get mentioned on a major site or go viral on social media their hosting company is likely to take their site down. When this happens, they lose the benefit of having gone viral!

The reason for this is traffic limits on almost every hosting solution. If you go over your traffic limit, some hosting companies may charge you for the overage while others will immediately take your site offline.

No, the job is to personally and passionately make us care enough to look up the facts for ourselves.

Newsjacking is a prevalent technique in boring industries such as finance, but businesses are expecting to achieve results just from regurgitating the news, and maybe adding a quote from someone at the company on the end.
