Anatomy of the Scoble Effect

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,

scobleizer.com 135
netvibes.com 15

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.
