I asked for a link and, being the really nice guy that he is, Scoble linked to me in twitter. My traffic doubled. Not bad, but not quite what I was hoping for. Maybe I need a better pitch. Maybe a link in his blog is better than a twitter link. Maybe the day I chose was the problem. Twitter was experiencing some serious slowness and random forgetfulness on Saturday and Sunday, and Sundays (the day he linked to me) are typically slower anyway.
But for comparison, I linked to the Google blog a couple weeks ago and that created a trackback with just the title of my post, and my traffic went up more than 10 times normal. Of course, that was a tech post and Scoble was helping me promote a non-profit and they seem to be harder to promote.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to improve results?
Anyway, thanks Robert for the link. It did help some.
