Traffic to Charity Sites Jumps

Hitwise reports that traffic to humanitarian websites has grown over five-fold since the tsunami disaster December 26, with the sector now representing 0.29% of all visits made online.

The UK's Disaster Emergency Committee, an umbrella organization which coordinates the UK's national appeal for humanitarian crises overseas, is the most visited Charity website. In fact, so many people are attempting to visit the site that the organization is asking people to call a toll-free number to donate.

A previously unranked blog site, tsunamihelp.blogspot.com, jumped to the number 10 spot this week.
