The location for Amazon's second US HQ may have been revealed after thousands of the e-commerce giant’s employees descended upon a shortlisted city's local news website.
The site, which covers Arlington, Virginia, noticed that a two-month old news article describing the city's green credentials was proving hugely popular. "Eagle-eyed readers of this site may have noticed something odd in this past Friday’s weekend discussion post: namely, the inclusion of an article from December among the most-viewed stories of the week," an article on Arlnow.com stated.
It adds: “The vast majority of the traffic to the page over the past week that can be tracked came from what appears to be an internal Amazon.com page devoted to its HQ2 search. Arlington, of course, is in the running as one of the potential landing spots for the company’s second headquarters.”
