Andy said this was a record Saturday - the highest ever in this thread http://wordpress.com/forums/topic.php?id=2916&replies=12
andy - The stats database is not updated instantly when somebody visits your blog. There is a normal delay of at least one minute. When we are doing maintenance on the stats system as we were this weekend, the update schedule can be pushed back by as much as several hours.
The total number of visits counted for this Saturday was our highest ever on a Saturday by a large margin, so I am confident that we have an accurate record on that chart.

In the same thread I attempted in another thread to get andy to address this same point that raincoaster is making.
Thanks for your response. I would like to ask another question. I find it amazing that in one day 1268 unexpected visitors came out of nowhere. Is it possible that some database somewhere or some search engine somewhere suddenly became aware of our WordPress blogs?
In other words, can you suggest any explanation or speculations for why suddenly right out of the blue on the very weekend staff were doing maintenance on the stats system the number of visits on a Saturday was the highest ever recorded?

I did not get a reply from andy - probably because several people added onto the thread and andy didn't see it.
drmike - do you want to bump this up to andy?
