>Google’s blog and Wannatech

It’s been almost two months since I wrote about Google Marratech and TechCrunch, and until this day, that particular post is one of the most visited of this blog with the post about Melinda Dolittle being eliminated on American Idol. Why is that post so popular? Most importantly, how are people regularly being sent to it directly? They are coming from Google’s blog. Of the over 100 links featured on the page containing that article, mine is currently showing at the sixth position from the top. Being positioned so closely to the top is achieved by not linking to the blog as soon as the post is published but only later on after most people have reacted on the news on their blog. I’m sure that the 100th link gets fewer clicks than mine.
