How do people find S&P?

Good question. We have actively talked up the blog at any Sig Ep opportunity "where 2 or 3 are gathered together" over the last 3 years, and we have garnered a nice steady readership. We are considering how best to make sure that any SigEp who is interested can find us and so we did some data mining to see how things are today.

We were looking over the stats (instead of working) a few minutes ago. It is intriguing to see where people come from to get here.

Looking back over the last 100 visits (that is all you get to see with a free Sitemeter.com account), most of the hits come from "unknown" - which generally means someone typed or pasted the url into the address line of their browser, or maybe from a bookmark. That is not really a surprise, since everyone has S&P as their start page! Another no-brainer is the 25 referrals from
google searches. We get a few from Yahoo!, Ask.com, and so on also.

The list gets a bit more diverse after that.:

Most of these sites have a link to S&P somewhere on them. We love the exposure even if we didn't know about it before.

Leave a comment and let us know how you got here. If it is a really cool site we might just link back.
