This is what it looks like when Google shuts down a popular service and then links to your website

Raaw: When Google announced that they were going to shut down their very popular service Google Reader on July 1 we naturally started working hard making sure that the list of Google Reader alternatives were relevant and that all information was up to date. The list of alternatives we had ready on July 1 was a pretty good summary of what people in general thought.

Obviously some people at Google agreed, because when it was time to shut down Google Reader for good, they published a short message on the site and linked to AlternativeTo.

The story is too old to be commented.

That’s a huge spike in unexpected traffic, and many sites wouldn’t have been able to take that load and stay afloat.

Impressive, nonetheless.

Sure, but on the other side, many sites would LOVE that huge traffic from Google itself to be the reason for crashing for a day or two.

I wouldn't mind at all.

Now they can say "Google loves us", and mean it.
