So just because I have wondered what kind of effect a link from an “A list” blogger has, I am going to share what happened here.
In the 24 hours after Scoble linked to me on a Saturday afternoon, I received approximately 1020 more hits than my daily average. Here are the referral stats for that day,
And here were the clicks out of my blog that day,
I also made it into the wordpress.com top 100 blogs at number 83 for the day, and was the number 6 growing blog on wordpress.com, all from just one link from scoble on a Saturday.
It was fun but I don’t plan on ever being a blog superstar, I do it because I enjoy it and I like to be able to see how I have changed over the years. How I see things is shifting and I cant see that trend on a weekly basis but over the years it sure does show up.
