All bloggers should know

So, you've been working all night on that killer blog post, endlessly amending and improving it. At last you're happy with your masterpiece. You finally click 'Publish', and the job's finished. Well, not quite. Wired Magazine takes up the story:

"Imperceptibly and all but instantaneously, your post slips into a vast and recursive network of software agents, where it is crawled, indexed, mined, scraped, republished, and propagated throughout the Web. Within minutes, if you've written about a timely and noteworthy topic, a small army of bots will get the word out to anyone remotely interested, from fellow bloggers to corporate marketers."

Wired has an infographic (above), giving full details of the process.

  1. I can hardly wait! To date, my new blog appears to have been crowned with Daniel Patrick Moynihan's "benign neglect."

    Anyway, today's Therapeutic Family Law blog post, entitled "Marriage Therapy: Caveat Emptor," focuses on how to find pro-marriage, pro-commitment, reliably competent marriage therapists in North America, and why it's worth the effort.

  2. On one occasion I got over 5000 hits when a litigant in person left a message "I would say that it is up to each individual judge, like a game of chess only you are the pawn." except she had written 'pawn' with 'or' instead of 'aw.'

  3. You should have written it as she did, then I would have got an extra 5000 hits!
