(update: check out Dare’s post on NewzCrawler (and others) as Denial of Service clients)
There must be a few people who have their aggregators set to check rss feeds every 10 seconds or something. I very rarely look at my stats because they don’t really tell me much. But I have to say I was a little surprised to see that there were over 14,000 hits to my website today (from 12am to almost 5pm).
So where do they come from?
10,000+ are from NewzCrawler then a whole lot of other aggregators and then a small # of browsers.
Very strange. I get a few links and fewer comments, so I really don’t think there’s a lot of people reading this and of course I know that the high aggregator number is from frequent refreshes.
One thing that I love to see coming in through referrers is that people are starting on the Vermont.NET website that has a feed from my Jobs category here and there are a lot of click throughs, which means that my posting local IT jobs that I find in the local papers over coffee (or that my hubby is kind enough to point out) is a good resource for some people.
