’60 Minutes’ brings Google traffic

I saw several hundred people getting to my blog by Googling “RedFin” tonight. This is very strange and is a huge anomaly in my traffic patterns. WordPress.com reports to blog owners where traffic is coming from. I wondered why everyone was searching for “RedFin” and then I found the RedFin blog and saw that they were on the famous American TV show 60 Minutes last night. Why did Google bring the traffic here? The seventh result on Google is my video I did with RedFin’s CEO back in March.


TechMeme’s founder on my link blog

TechMeme’s founder, Gabe Rivera, is on my link blog. Along with a bunch of other really interesting things happening in the blogosphere today. Where it really came from is Andy Plesser’s video blog. Like Engadget’s Peter Rojas I watch TechMeme every day, it’s my start page. I’m surprised more industry insiders don’t know about it or follow it.
