[thelist] Blog Share Links

No serious blogger, especially professional men and women, give a crap about "the Digg effect."

A million hits means a million unqualified hits that will not convert to sales or loyal readers of your blog. It might also crash your servers to have artificially ramped up hits on a site.

Curiosity surfers only create a false sense of popularity, which is very damaging to content decisions.
