TSN vs 50MC on Deadline Day.
TSN wasn’t the only one who enjoyed a very successful NHL deadline day. Recently, it was announced that TSN enjoyed a considerable increase for this year’s deadline coverage compared to last year. March 4th was also a good day for 50MC. It was the busiest day for us at Fifty Mission Cap to date. We got a stupid (meaning: ridiculous or amazing) amount of hits on deadline day. We received 153 hits that day, which constitutes for over 53% of our total views ever. It was over 600% more views than the next highest views in a day of 23. Haha. Kind of embarassing, but it’s cool to see a huge spike in views.
Specifically, the Live Trade Deadline Blog drew 136 views alone. ‘m not even going to calculate how much of an increase that is compared to average views. The number is probably something stupid. Looks like you guys like that kind of stuff.
So what have I learned? I have been killing myself on trying to figure out how to increase views on a blog. I think I have found one secret: link your blog posts to other blogs. That blog will get pingback and the author is more than likely to click on that link and BOOM you got a view. When you link to other blogs, an excerpt from your blog may also appear on their own message board or “related articles”. I got 41 views just from linking to the Star Tribune blog. I will probably get a few more views just from that link. Try it out.
