Some time ago now, I took the MXNA code that was on DRK3 and whipped up a blogregator for the UK MM related blogs. It all looked cool and I know that people were looking at it as the log files showed that they were. The hard thing was that I did not know if people were actually using it, if they were actually clicking on the links and going off to other people blogs and without access to all of their log files, I could not look to see if it was working.
So I looked at FullasGoog and the real mxna (www.markme.com/mxna) and saw that they were tracking clicks with a click.cfm. Not to reinvent the wheel, I went and did the same and also took Geoff’s idea of tracking which bloggers were of most value, had the highest clickthroughs.
So after a bit of coding on the train and with thanks to my new 3G datacard, you too can now see if the blogegator is useful!
