Hixie's Natural Log

2002-09-05 14:09 UTC What's Hot and What's Not

I think it's most amusing that while my quiz got linked to from two dozen or more Web logs, it has so far had less hits due to referrals than my sample insults designed to turn people away.

So far though my most popular entry based on hits by referral is still my leak regarding Hyatt's new place of employment.

So in order of most successful to least successful, ways to become well linked are:

  1. Break some new news or gossip (hard work, you need to know the gossip before anyone else).
  2. Appeal to reader's sense of curiosity with a tough quiz (moderately hard work, you need to research the material first).
  3. Insult your readers.
