Traffic master

One of the most popular pages on my site has always been my Samba tutorial for Linux. I don’t think it’s that fantastic of a tutorial, and I’m probably the last person you’d want to turn to with a Linux question. But somehow that page has gotten high ranking in a lot of Google searches. And I mean a lot. I scour through my referrer logs, and I see dozens and dozens of different Google searches for different variations on the theme of adding Linux to a Windows network. And all of them have my article on the first or second page of results. Most days that article gets the same amount of page views as, or even more than, this weblog. There must be something magic about that page that Google really likes. Either that or there’s just not a lot of tutorials on the topic.

    There are very few RedHat tutorials out there that are as concise as yours. If I didn't know how to do it, I'd probably like reading yours. RedHat has some odd quirks that make people search for RedHat-specific docs. For example, a while ago I discovered that under RedHat the “mount -t smbfs” command is not understood by default. Somehow RedHat feels that “smbmount” is a more intuitive command…
