So thankfully I was wrong about the amount of linklove Amatomu was sending to the blogosphere. In a previous post I estimated Amatomu would send through around 50 000 clicks to the SA blogosphere in the month. Actually the site sent through double that, and in under a month.
At the time of writing (Tuesday evening), the site had sent almost 112 109 clickthroughs through to local blogs since April 5, when we started tracking it (about 26 days). It’s been great to see it working, and the blogosphere getting traffic. Our aim for Amatomu is to send through more traffic to the SA blogosphere.
My personal blog (this one) has received around 600 clickthroughs from amatomu, which is nice There are big challenges around the corner. Splogs have arrived. Also as there is more volume we need to continually relook at the interface and how we present the blog data to keep the info meaningful. We’ve received so many suggestions from the blogosphere, many of which we have implemented. A huge thanks to everyone who has sent in their bits and keep ’em coming. It’s made all the difference. We are really loving the feedback.
