Look at this list below (graphic), for this story we’re talking about right now. Look at the names in that list. I took this screen grab before I wrote this story, but in a half hour from now, my blog and name will be listed right next to all of those big name bloggers and brands.
As I said over at Mathew’s blog…
Yes, you donâ€™t get â€œtrafficâ€ from TM. What you get is influence. When your blog starts showing up next to your peers, itâ€™s branding. Has to measure direct, but it is valuable.
Traffic is great for selling ads, that’s about it. If you want influence and association… branding. Techmeme delivers the goods.
