Red. But Not All Over.


Here’s an interesting statistic. A disturbing one, if you’re in the newspaper business.
Yesterday, when I was quoted in The San Francisco Chronicle, the paper’s website,, was kind enough to provide a link to this site and sent me about 70 visitors. That’s from a front-page story, one featured on the real “paper” paper’s front page.
That ranks below a long-time referrer, a site known to one and all: Craig Newmark’s personal blog
Newmark has sent me 87 visitors in the past 24 hours.
Compare that to getting hit by Glenn Reynolds. Depending on when he links to you, Reynolds is good for between 500 and 700 visitors a day.
