Reddit Rocks the New Year, Digg…well…

December 31, 2008 — 5 Comments

Nice New Years links from Reddit and Whirlpool. Not sure how high we ended up on Reddit, but it delivered over 9,000 page views. That’s the highest we’ve ever had from a Reddit link; shhhh, don’t tell anyone, but my bet is that Reddit is booming at the moment. I know we weren’t top of the page, so the figure is better again. We’ve been top before, and only got 3-4k.

Whirlpool is nice to have, and I’m grateful that something I had to write was recognized in Australia. They remain Australia’s best site for telco, mobile and internet discussion for a reason.

Surprisingly though the same post turned up on Digg. Not front page yet but submitted by MrBabyMan so a nice run. Not a lot of traffic, but I’m grateful to Mohammed for the link. No idea if we’ll hit front page, highly unlikely, and more so when you see dicks like this

Note my post was written beofre Christmas. It comes from an Australian, about an Australian issue. Unlike the NY Times who was late to the story, I also don’t run the Australian Government spin.

Digg just attracts these people, doesn’t it. Couldn’t read either article, or the massive difference between both.

I’ve said it before, there’s a reason I spend my time on Reddit.
