The big news yesterday was the Supreme Court’s ruling on “Obamacare.” And as Brendan Sasso of The Hill reports, anticipation for the ruling drove a lot of people online:

Traffic to the Supreme Court’s website has more than tripled in the last week as people anxiously await a historic ruling on President Obama’s healthcare law.

The number of visitors to the court’s website,, has jumped 270 percent in just seven days, according to Web information company Alexa.

Another site that received a ton of traffic was SCOTUSblog, which, Sasso notes, was forced to spend $25,000 just to keep up with the traffic yesterday.
