To infinity and beyond
My blog is getting bombarded by hits. I somehow ended up on the top spot for Google searches for "tier 0.5" and "stratholme 45 min", and that with an article that only links to where the real information is found. So since the patch in live, I get over 2000 hits per day. From a pure number of visitors point of view, 2006 is a big success:
Unlike previous spikes in visitors, this time it isn't a link from Slashdot or some big gaming site which gets people visiting my blog. This time the hits nearly exclusively come from Google. It is kind of a snowball system, people find my site on Google, link to me, which makes my Google page rank go up, and more people find me on Google.
Blogger and Blogspot being free services, I wonder at what point they'll limit my bandwith, or require me to pay for it. I'm probably still far from that point, but the growth rate is impressive.
