  • Lol, you can thank me later for the StumbleUpon traffic. :)

    If anyone else wants to submit BlogHighEd to Stumble I wouldn’t be surprised to see that number surpass everything else.

  • Not bad for the first month ;-)

    Do you know what the % of .edu hostname visits was for the first month? I’m guessing it was fairly high…even with the bonus traffic (presumably non-.edu) from Kyle’s stumbleupon submission :)

  • I would have to look in the logs, but I don’t know why it wouldn’t be high. It is, after all, a higher ed aggregate.

  • Those are some pretty impressive numbers. Thirty countries is pretty neat, too. Kyle, good call on StumbleUpon.
