Blogger’s Coattails

I’m still listed on Blogger’s home page, so I can indirectly see what kind of effect the recent news is having on their popularity. Last week, I averaged about 700 page views per day, most of those coming from the link on blogger.com. Yesterday, I had 3,800 page views. I know my site didn’t suddenly get better, so it must be that there’s a whole lot of people checking out Blogger this week. And if I can hitch a ride on the coattails of their success, there’s nothing wrong with that!

    Congrats Scott, I just started a website to help people with special needs, and I love this weblog idea. It must be exciting to get all those page views! Sheesh! I have a Mac server so I am killing myself trying to get a blooger. Do you know of one in pearl? Warmest Greetings from the frigid Yukon.

    Blogger was linked to from the bbc news website (in an article about Google buying Pyra), so a lot of those people probably came through because of that…

    Last week, my balance of hits went up over 500% too, and I wasn't featured on blogger's homepage. Ummm…but I would love to see what would happen if I was. Incidentally it went from 10 to almost 60 (a wee bit of difference in scale) Congrats on your newfound celebrity and nice blog!

    With my luck I'll NEVER be mentioned on Blogger. God/the gods/Charles Darwin hates/hate me….
