Interesting to see the analysis coming off the back of the Dixon (Apologies for not putting you on – alongside Lyndon you were on the Shortlist 12 (and then not on the final 17 odd – not sure what happened :))

Counted around 50 additional followers to my Twitter account following the above mentioned post and just short of 500 visitors in just over two hours.

From a personal level – I hadnt seen Twitter in action from that perspective – but it has certainly highlighted the potential. Now for the US :)

That’s interesting, Dixon. I read that article – it’s how I found your twitter profile. Happy to have contributed to your 13.

That’s interesting to see, I wondered how many Twitter emails I had to delete yesterday! Might be a few more if this post hits the homepage: http://sphinn.com/story/96020

And while I’d like to take credit it was Pete Young’s post – I just submitted to Sphinn. Any chance of swapping my link to SEOptimise too (sorry Ciaran!) ;)

So if that is the case, then I have to comment 5 times at your blog. :D

Interesting blogpost…I was just wondering the exact importance of every link building strategy, realizing comparisons…well, it’s not scientific, but useful :)

Hey – I’m just glad to have been in the comments Peter! :)

Yep – I fixed that link. So sorry Kevin.

Singapore – I think that if the content in the comments is as valuable as the content in the original post, then yes… but I think that probably gets diluted on busy blogs. Mine’s nice and quiet, and because I have DoFollow I tend to be a bit vicious with comment culling to compensate. The post I tested on, Rishil more or less was the first comment and added to the post. Lee Odden (I think) did a much larger list a while back… must have 500 people adding their name now!

I posted in the comments over there quite early on and seem to get a big increase

Good spot of research. Thanks!

I was surprised when Pete included me… and let me tell you it feels like a lot more than ~50 new followers! Eeep.

said Andrew Girdwood on January 9th, 2009 at 9:47 am

Thanks again for the Sphinn Kev, it seems to have done very well :)

BTW Congrats on getting in the to the ‘35+ Blogs that are worth your attention

Interesting stuff Dixon, thanks for sharing, looks pretty solid, although Pete borked my twitter link so maybe that’s why I only received 6 ;)

On a related note, have you checked out twitter-friends.com? pretty cool.

said robwatts on January 9th, 2009 at 11:56 am

I’ve now had 60 more followers since that post – Thanks Pete!

Isn’t it interesting the conversion rate as you go down the list of people in order.

The amount of followers gained is almost exactly the same as the list order which is just like search conversions by rank.

I…..LOVE……THIS…….INDUSTRY!!!!

And Dixon, thought you were going to enter my new year’s competition?

Dixon, you need to make some new years resolutions about this sort of thing and get out more, HNY dude :-)

I fell out of love with comment posting for link love, I was not sure that any PageRank was even flowing from the comments. I think it’s too easy for goog to just cast a sweeping ban on blog comments as they have been abused to death.
