We might be in a recession, but early signs indicate Cyber Monday was a success.

If Web traffic translates into online sales, this year’s holiday season is gearing up to much better than last year’s – contrary to the doom-and-gloom forecasts for the holiday season.

Traffic to online retail sites today – Cyber Monday – far exceeded last year’s Cyber Monday traffic. This year, the traffic peaked around 3 p.m. ET, with 6.7 million global visitors per minute – a 46 percent jump over the peak of 4.6 million on Cyber Monday last year. Today’s peak traffic also exceeded Black Friday’s peak of 5.9 million and Sunday’s 6.5 million.
