Promotion

April 12, 2009

Interesting. WordPress logs a lot of stats, and tracks where people click from to get to your wordpress blog. In particular, I linked to an entry on Terry Tao’s blog as an example of what a “level 1” math post might look like, and that day I got 40-something visits from his blog, followed by the usual near-complete obscurity. It seems that whenever someone links to a wordpress blog, it manufactures a comment on the target’s blog. This is interesting, though kind of shady. At any rate, I’ll try to use this knowledge sparingly but intentionally, hopefully striking a balance between relevance and self-promotion. If you follow a link over here from such a place, let me know if you like what you see. Comments are actually quite welcome.
