Traffic Spike


Kenilworthian Traffic, September 8th-12th

Ever wonder what sort of traffic the more popular blogs, such as "Marginal Revolution," get each day? Well, I got an idea when Tyler Cowen linked to my post about his fallen record in the NJ Open. My traffic spiked from an average of 140 unique visitors per day to over 2000 (almost all from his site, and almost all to that single post). And those are just the ones who followed his link. Other than the Daily Dirt, no chess blog gets anywhere near those numbers. And I'm not even talking Daily Kos type of numbers....

The lesson I draw? This chess blog stuff is a waste of time. Economics and politics is where the real action is.

See ya later.... ;-)
