I subscribe to Seth Godin‘s blog RSS on my Google/ig (personalized homepage) and found it rather odd that his 5 mistakes entrepreneurs make when they market post only to be a link to another site.
Why? I wondered and then had a closer look at where he was sending us. The old school hit counter, something we all had in 1999, which has been reborn as Feedburner’s feedcounter gave his game away.
WorkHappy feedcounter: 4608
A Group of Web AddiCT(s); feedcounter subscribers have nearly doubled since implementing a 301 redirect to Feedburner using this WordPress plugin. This is not 1999 so I’m not going to tell you how many there are.
If only a very tiny percentage of internet users use RSS, WorkHappy must have many many readers. There you have it.
Analytics says that my blog is getting more first-time traffic than usual.
Nice impelmentation of the essence of business blogging Mr Godin.
