I noticed that I also get a lot of referrals from the NY Times website to my blog.

I went over to your site, Maloof, and I am really impressed. Everybody needs to visit "A View From Here" and see what's going on over there.

"A lot of referrals?" And here I am bragging about one...

I think it has a lot to do with the subject matter that you/we are blogging about. You and I both link to them quite often in our blogs. The NY Times search mechanism must keep track of it.

I tried figuring out how Blogrunner works. It's sort of a feed and it has human beings helping it. Since my blog is focused on Mideast topics, and yet the Times' Guatemala page picked up two of my posts based on the term used, I suspect that Blogrunner is a robot for the most part. But somehow I got myself listed as a blog their robot is watching. Perhaps that's no big deal, and millions of blogs are listed.

It's mindboggling, and best if I don't pay much mind. Anyway, looks like I only got a couple of clicks out of it. Sharon Astyk sends me ten times as many if I make an interesting comment.

Mazel tov, Leila. You deserve the recognition.

Me I'm getting recognized by David Duke who just published my last post in the Guardian at his website. Can we trade places? All of my right-wing pro-Israel trolls are chortling w. pleasure at what David Duke has done. It's almost like Duke has to be a double agent for these people. Whatever he touches turns to dreck (that's s(^t for all those who aren't in the know).

Gee, I bet I link more to NYT articles than all of you combined & I can't remember the last time I got an NYT referral. They don't send any traffic my way. I was even interviewed for a front pg. NYT article once & I don't think I got any traffic fr. it (they didn't provide a link to my blog of course).

I get 3-4 referrals a day with the tag mostly being "international". It will be interesting to see if yours will increase now that the NY Times has found you.

By the way, did you see my most recent post on Arab names? It seems that Saba originated from the name, Maloof.
