The Internet is an Amazing Place

WordPress provides statistics on how many hits your site is receiving and where those hits are originating from (i.e. which websites referred a given user to your site).  I sometimes skim through these results to get a feel for where things are coming from.

Today’s results provide a brief example of what I mean.  This is a low volume site with a niche topic and yet we are getting hits from a mention that was made in a Norwegian blog.  The topic was about Stephen McIntyre and when WMC was mentioned in the comments someone posted a reference to A good example of William M. Connolley’s work on Wikipedia. 🙂  Glad I could help.

I’ve found similar instances in the past (which I won’t bother to dig up) but it amazes me the reach that even a simple, low volume blog can actually have sometimes.

I fear that I have not been spending enough time actually blogging about the abuses that are occurring on a regular basis and so perhaps I should do more along those lines.  If we’re getting mentions in Norway without even putting in a reasonable effort, I wonder what we can make happen if I actually try to advertise this blog a bit.  Hmmm.
