Ever wonder what a link on Google's homepage would bring in terms of traffic? Let's take this G1 link:

This Link Got Over 800,000 Clicks in a 7-Day Run

The Compete blog gives some detail into the number of clicks that link had while it was extremely visible on

First, some background. Google planned on running this between the 22nd and 29th of October. It was for Google's new phone with T-Mobile. What's was the value of the traffic to T-Mobile? Well, the visibility of the link did some incredible things:

* More than 800,000 unique visitors went to that page. * In one day, more than 233,000 unique visitors were registered.

That's impressive. Too bad it didn't hit 1 million, but 800,000 in 7 days is pretty impressiveis
