Anyway coming back to the topic I still get close to 50K hits per year on this blog, so thinking how can I apply concepts of book to the blog.
On Quora in past 6 months my content had 31.6K views
In terms of hits it doesn’t makes much difference to switch but earlier I used to think that you write blogs and search engine would scrape it and you would get find(which happened for a rabbitmq post I wrote which get linked to rabbitmq site and is the most visited post on this blog). Apparently I was dead wrong the book says you need to not only need to write content but you need to market it also on social sites like facebook, twitter, linkedin and retweet it and what not so people would link it. I don’t feel comfortable sharing all the posts from this blog as is due to various reasons so I am thinking of moving to Quora for posts that I feel comfortable sharing and I can share them on twitter/linked and leave the private and more technical posts here (the idea is not to market myself but just compare stats and see if same concepts in book can be applied and I can see them in action. I had applied Google analytics first on my blog and then in the my employer startup the same way. Alternatively another idea is to start a new blog on blogger for public posts and leave semi private posts here.
Still debating and will probably reach some conclusion soon.
