Crazy SEO traffic spike for tragedy

The range of news over the Disney World monorail death led to a huge spike in traffic on CoasterBuzz, because the news items were so well tuned for search engines. Sunday and Monday were nearly double the normal visitors. Unfortunately, they were poor quality visitors who didn't hang out very long, but you figure that some percentage will bookmark and come back at some point. It's just a shame that it had to happen because of something horrible.
