20 November 2007 is my most hits ever day! So far.
2750 hits! Just look at that Mount Everest steep incline, ambushing the gentle meandering river of moderate hits like a Richter 9.0 quake that births new mountain ranges! The majority of which came from Malaysiakini’s blog tracker.
As you can see from the above stats, the three main culprits were my posts on recent government/police/UMNO bullying:
Malaysiakini caused my previous most hits on 1 November 2007, the smaller mountain worth 1671 hits.
That one was due to new comments on my old post Malaysiakini: Are US News Agencies Biased Against Palestine?
And long ago, I already posted in No, I’m Sorry, Your Blog Isn’t Really That Popular – It’s Just Malaysiakini and 200 Hits For My Green Carrot on the relationship between mentioning Malaysiakini on a blog, the Malaysiakini tracker listing that blog, and that blog’s hit spiking suddenly and temporarily.
Thus, I notice, the trend of various bloggers to include Malaysiakini in the Tags of their posts, even if the post has nothing to do with Malaysiakini.
Dishonest jacking up of hits? But since it works both ways, free advertising for both the blog and Malaysiakini, I suppose it’s ‘fair play’. But I won’t resort to that artificial tactic.
But anyway, thanks Malaysiakini auto-blog tracker, and all the curious doods and doodettes who clicked on the link to my (curiosity-ticklingly titled) posts.
UPDATE: 1713 hits on the following day.
