A big thank you

In the world there are over 100 million blogs and they are monitored by a service called Technorati. So you can imagine how pleased I was two year ago when this blog made it to number 52,589 in their ranking. This with an “authority” of 121, which is a measure of how often it had been referred to by other blogs in the previous six months.

Fast forward to today and Bruceongames.com is now ranked as blog number 7,139 in the world. And the “authority” is now at 464. Not too shabby when you consider that it is targeted at a fairly narrow audience, game industry professionals, that there is only one person writing here and that there is no marketing budget.

So a big thank you to everyone who has made this possible. You the readers and also the many other bloggers who have chosen to refer to what is written here.

Keep up the articles mate.

Any chance you gonna do an article of how Sony have fluffed the MAG release? I mean, the first 256 player shooter on a console, and I have hardly seen any ads or marketing for it . . . . . . . . . What the hell are Sony playing at? They used to be marketing gods . . . . . . .

Congrats! It’s probably the Evony Lawsuit episode that brought people (like me) here. But we’re staying for the great insight into the world of game marketing. Keep up the good work!

Congrats, Bruce!

Congratulations! I don’t always agree with you, but your comments are always interesting and you don’t hold back. And you never write about what you have for breakfast, or who you met in town, and what new ringer tone you’ve put on your mobile, unlike seemingly 99.999% of bloggers!!!! It’s sadly all too rare for people to write interesting blogs, so thanks for that.

Great work, Bruce! Now if I can only do the same with my website.

Thanks for the information about Technorati, Bruce. I’ve gotten more serious about my site and decided to put aside some time each day to learn more about RSS and general marketing. Technorati looks like a great resource.

Bruce, congrats on the result.
You might think that this blog is aimed squarely at “game industry professionals” but, having just discovered it today as a casual gamer, I’ve spent the entire afternoon reading through various articles.
