If you needed any proof of the power of Twitter, look no further than this blog’s visitor statistics. While Alexa is only a proxy at best, this blog has not really ranked that well since its début in 2006. Its three-month running average at Alexa is a 569,445 ranking—hardly anything to write home about.
I blogged about my criteria for following Tweeters on Twitter on March 15. By March 18, when I imagine my post got mentioned among the Twitter community, the hits started rising and Alexa reports 216,996. Audience reach went from a dismal 0·00019 per cent to 0·00064—a trebling. That’s despite a drop in the pages per visit from 1·8 average to 1·5 on March 18. Posted by Jack Yan, 09:52
Looks good, but my firefox plugin shows you ranking is almost back at 500K. Have you stopped using Twitter or ...?
Casper, the high ranking was just for the day. Sadly, my blog is usually in the 400,000–600,000 range.Post a Comment

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
