It’s a little off topic, but very much worth mentioning for people who want traffic to their blog. Alphainventions.com is a really useful way, not only to get traffic and readership to your blog, but also to browse and read many other blogs in one window.
The way it works is that when you post to your blog it appears updated on the alphainventions site and people have instant access to it. People browsing the site can pause the blog window upon seeing a blog they want to read and follow a direct link to the blog. It does rely on people browsing the alphainventions window rather than through search engines, however this is evidently working because increased blog hits are immediately evident. You can add your own url via the site.
Who doesn’t want more traffic to reach a wider readership?
