Business Consulting For The 21st Century Via A Holistic & Intelligent Approach

Add This revisited

FYI => Add another chapter to, “The Only Constant is Change.” I had a moment to swing past to check on a couple things. Oh my! Did I miss something a couple/few months ago? The API has some really handy features. For example, now you can tag your links being shared out. Cool! And shorten them with too. Double cool!! Plus a couple other things that I’ll be sure to mention some other time.

OK, some would argue that it’s not a good idea to tag. That it causes (for lack of a better term) share fragmenting. But I’m willing to take that chance, as well as disagree. I believe, at least for the moment, the better you understand the nature of your traffic the more likely you are to be able to nurture it. Multiple URLs (from tagging) for the same post might not help on Digg. But one non-measurable Digg spike isn’t going to help either. I’ll take the long term play and tag’em as they go out.

Worst case, the tagging can be a brief quarterly effort. Maybe one week of collecting a data snapshot, and use that data to come up with some actionable information.
