Thoughts, about stuff

My 10 secrets blog entry goes stratospheric!

with 6 comments

Here’s a pleasant little titbit of news; well for me it is anyway. My blog entry 10 hidden secrets of Windows Live has broken 1million views on www.windowslive.com.

What’s even more surprising is that on 4th September it had had 121538 views so we’re talking nearly 900000 views in a very very short space of time. Sure, I know its currently linked to on the homepage but that link has been there since 14th August.

So, what has happened that could have prompted a 900+% increase in 4 days I wonder? Oh yeah, 4th September was the day that that advert got released; I guess there really is no such thing as bad publicity.

  1. We’ve actually been featuring your post in some of our on-line advertising, including on the MSN homepage so that’s most likely the reason.  Great job!

  3. Yeah, it rotates around with other ads.  But even a slice of the MSN traffic is a pretty big fire hose of page views!

  6. I know that I was REALLY surprised when I saw an add featuring you on the live pop-up that comes with messenger.  Here I thought you were just one of the guys… And then I see that they are promoting your posts as well as the fact that you were using the events page for that little date you have set up.  I’m not sure if congrats are in order the correct protocol is, but you must be doing something right :-)Hope everything is going well, especially in the next few weeks…
