This is a quick experiment to check how quickly Alpha Inventions visits this site after I write a post that mentions their name.
I have written an extensive response to a question about Alpha Inventions on Build Your Traffic. http://is.gd/n1hU and did NOT submit the post to their site.
There were 201 views from Alpha Inventions, without it being submitted to their search engine, between 5:10 and 7.27. (130.2 minutes – 201 views = 1.5438 views per minute – with no direct submission – just using their own search engine looking for their own name)
These are the page view results for No Tall Poppies over the past few days:
9 March 2009 210 views
10March 2009 116 views
11March 2009 101 views
12March 2009 5257 views
13March 2009 6231 views
14March 2009 638 views
15March 2009 24 views
16March 2009 2 views (at time of update)
Since all these resulted without the actual post being submitted directly to the Alpha Inventions search engine, and there are a very wide range of referrral sources apart from Alpha Inventions alone, it will take some time to distill the data. It will be published here – as soon as it is ready – probably in about three or four days time.
