Can you give examples of these "publicly available referral logs"? This data is interesting, but I'm curious how biased the sample is.

You are right - I need to give some description of the data. I hope to get to that a little later in the day - stay tuned!

Is the referal data coming from referers from mutliple blogs? Or just yours?

Kevin Burton

Alexa data just isn't reliable..... even if the data said that Tailrank was the #1 site on the Internet I'd say it's totally pointless. You might as well use a random number generator. :)

Also I believe that when sitemeter says "unknown" for the referer it's coming with the Referer HTTP header unset...

Good post though!


Otis Gospodnetic

Ah, mentions of Alexa and Sitemeter in the same post - my favourite! I wrote a bit about them here:

Interesting post. Is the crawl+parse script available? I'd love to look at some other numbers and other referals.

Matthew Hurst

Otis - thanks for the comment. There is no real magic to the crawling and parsing (wget plus some awk).

La mode du keffieh
A Paris, toutes les gonzesses se l’arrachent. Le Keffieh est revenu à la mode, et il est en ce moment-même un accessoire branché indispensable.
Jadis porté par les militants d’extrême-gauche (et accessoirement, plus tard, par les cailleras), le Keffieh est maintenant arboré par la jeunesse branchée, voire même friquée.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
