I was reading my friend Tim Grahl’s site and saw a great post on:
Your site may be more popular but I am richer.
What he says is how he is making tons of money not by generating more traffic than others but focusing on a particular niche, bicycles. Too many web geeks (including myself) check Alexa rankings as the measure for success but what really counts is importance. This reminds me of another thing guys try to brag about:)
When I got Digg’d frontpage and generated 20,000 page views I was mostly sad since I knew the next day only 10 more people would subscribe to my rss or revisit. I would have been 100x more happy if 100 people visited my site today and again next week. The value is in the quality not the quantity!
