Ive learned something from The UD Adventure.
Type however moves you. Want to call someone a Creotard, but your holding youre tongue? Go for it! Want to get in a big fight with another Evolution defender on here, but dont want to give Creationists ammo? Do it!!! Because you are only talking to Sal and Dave.
Sally has linked to me several times the past few days. I was like "SWEET! Send all the IDers here! YES YES EXPOSE THEM TO SCIENCE! WHOOOOOOO!!! HAHAHA SILLY SAL!"
Then I checked my sitemeter and googleanalytics. *gives readers a weird look again* Like, 80 hits from UD per day. My stats are up, as we're all checking the comments... But 80 hits? A link from one of my blog brothers and sisters gets at least 100 more direct hits for a few days. Blake pops you up at least 500 hits. PZ or PandasThumb put me in the stratosphere (3K isnt big for PZ, but its friggen HUUUUUUUGE for me!).
Major drama on one ScienceBlog (**COUGH!**) can also send the hits through the roof.
But major drama and multiple links from UD, THE ID Creationism blog... 80? And some of those are from my regular readers clicking in from UD. 80?
Sally, got a link to your sitemeter?
I found their technorati-- Authority of 368. Thats good! But then I realized they dont contribute to anyone elses Authority (none of Sals links are on my technorati) and all of their points come from OUR links to them. Thousands and thousands of points from SciBloggers. SciBlog posts, feeding UD traffic, which trickled down to 80 hits on ERV.
Nobody reads UD.
