I always find it strange how a post that’s several months old can suddenly get a link from a big site and go bonkers with traffic.
Remember a few months back when I started posting about Netvocates, the company that willfully uses B.I.A.S. [“Blog Intelligence and Advocacy Service” – I kid you not] as it’s acronym. (I’ll link to all the posts I’ve tagged with Netvocates but, as they’re in the business of Astrotufing, I’m not going to link directly to them from this post.)
When I first blogged it, the post got some links from some busy blogs (Daily Kos, Pandagon and others), which were then linked to by lots of smaller sites, and then reblogged by lots of people on livejournal and by forum users. A couple months later, the whole thing was revived with a link from Feministe and traffic spiked up again.
