Daily Traffic Charts

Technorati (As of February 29, 2008)
Rank: 231,062 (up from 263,682)
Authority: 35 (up from 31)
Comments: For whatever reason, our links from “Top 100” blog Gawker (Authority=7,982) were not counted as official “reactions.” (This made us hate Technorati.)

III. Feed Stats
February 29: 37 subscribers (from 33 on January 31)

February 29: 9 subscribers (from 5 on January 31)

IV. Major Links

V. Forecast
February was marked by a (relatively) stunning increase in traffic, primarily thanks to Gawker and Curbed. While this kind of “linkage growth” is likely to prove unsustainable in the short term, we will continue to focus on organic growth with the continuation of several new “features” and dispatches from “correspondents,” including The London Eye. We have also launched an impressionistic version of The Gay Recluse at Tumblr, mostly because it’s refreshingly easy to use (and look at).
