For those of us looking to make sure we’re visible out there on the ‘nets, I think these provide some important clues as to what we should be doing. Of course, a lot of it is specific to the kind of posts we’ve done to date, the kind of attention we’ve gotten on other blogs, and the things we’ve done thus far to promote it. Still, it’s interesting to see what works.
