If you’re a WordPress blogger, you log-in every day and the one constant is that Scobleizer is the number one WordPress blog.
Well, not today, the Scobleizer has been knocked from his perch by AtariBoy!
Who the hell is AtariBoy you might ask? He’s just an average joe blogger who posted a tip on how to view hidden comments on MySpace. He then submitted the story to Digg. It got promoted up the batting order and onto the front page and was then proceeded to be clicked on by some 11,000+ users and counting.
It’s quite clear that the big traffic in the blogosphere is being driven by aggregators and Digg.com is up the top of the pile at the moment. I had big recent traffic into the four figures for my recent Google News Fatally Flawed post and most of it came from reddit.com. My belief that aggregators will become the gatekeepers to online content gets reinforced every day!
