Looking at my referers from yesterday (WordPress shows me where traffic comes from and where they came from) I see that the largest group comes from Google Reader. I was on TechMeme twice yesterday and the fact that I got twice as much traffic from Google Reader than from TechMeme is pretty significant.
The other thing this demonstrates is that the most engaged audiences are now using Google Reader. What do I mean by “engaged?” People who are willing to do something. Click a link. Leave a comment. Buy. Etc.
Engaged audiences are the ones that advertisers and big companies are looking to reach.
Is Google sitting on a gold mine? My referer logs say yes.
