So I’ve just finished watching Working Lunch on BBC2, which featured a new directory-style start up called JuggleFrogs.co.uk. This site holds a directory of listings for tradespeople around the country, with premium listings and affiliate programmes as their revenue streams, alongside the ubiquitous adsense.
Now I went to visit this site straight away, as I do when I watch this programme and they reference a site, but I was dismayed to find I could not connect. The site was down; presumably the web server collapsed under heavy load.
I suspect that these guys have just learned a valuable lesson; if you’re expecting media coverage, you’ve got to have the resources to deal with it.
