Top referrers

November 23, 2009 am30 6:30 am

Taking a look at where readers come from – the primary answer is – IDK. Wandering in? Search engines? Readers? E-mailed links?

But a chunk, maybe 10-20%, leave a trace, and wordpress keeps count. Here’s the top ten all time blog referrers to this site:

edwize.org the UFT’s blog
pissedoffteeacher.blogspot.com a math teacher in another borough who won’t retire
gothamschools.org NYC ed site, with good newsclipping, funded by a charter advocate, with a predictable slant.
chaz11.blogspot.com Experienced teacher. Advocates for senior teachers getting victimized by Bloomberg/Klein.
threesixty360.wordpress.com Cool group math blog from a far-upstate college. Lots of accessible-for-regular-people math. And for godzilla. Really.
vlorbik.wordpress.com Defunct there. Reopened here Community College math guy. Good guy.
mildlymelancholy.blogspot.com NYC teacher. Then charter school teacher. Then photographer. Then sub. Then permanent sub. Then… another charter? Wow. Writes nicely.
preaprez.wordpress.com Fred, my blogging comrade. Teaches little kids in a Chicago suburb. Progressive. Active. Outspoken
arsmathematica.net Real math. They linked a math carnival once, and swamped me. Nothing comes from there anymore.
scienceblogs.com/goodmath Great math blog, lots of explanation things, from a guy in cs. Working in cs. Same like ars… linked once. Flood. Now a trickle
nyceducator.blogspot.com NYC teacher. Opposition type. Writes well.

    I found you either through 360 or vlorbik. I sure wish I knew how each person who visits my site got there.

      WordPress tries to keep track, and doesn’t do a horrible job. Site meter counts nicely, but doesn’t track (at least not for me) referrals well.

    thanks for the nod.
    i’m pretty weak at this stuff.
    gave up when feeds became
    the rage. the new blog has
    found very few readers as
    far as i know. back to VME
    soon i think.

    And my period of little-writing drove down the traffic here (noticeably, but not as much as I might have guessed). Trying to put it back together requires some navel gazing, which this is.

    That totally makes me happy that we refer people to you. :D
