WOW – Link Love

link-love.pngWe get notes from bloggers every day about links they discover from major media Sphere partner sites like WSJ, TIME, AOL, REUTERS, CBS, etc. This afternoon I got an email from one of our blog partner sites that shared performance data on Sphere Related Content Widget vs other icon links they use on their site. The data is really exciting on this end: Sphere generated 1,161 clicks on their site in January, more than double that of the other 8 icon links (1,161 vs 544) on their site. A great way to end the week – 🙂 Here is the original email:

Guys, We haven’t been in touch, but I thought you might be interested to see the use of our Feed Flair links vs. Sphere last month (Jan 08) (Mitigated by the fact that Sphere is a graphic link, of course.)
22 – “Add This!”
27 – “Subscribe by Email”
28 – “Stumble it!”
33 – “Submit to Reddit”
39 – “Save to Del.icio.us”
43 – “Subscribe to this Feed”
62 – “Share on Facebook”
290 – “Email This”
1161 – “Sphere: Related Content”
So, I guess sphere gets to stay on the island another season. WOW. Thanks for taking the time last year to make us this widget and for such a great service!
