I was trained as a scientist and enjoy doing social experiments even today. So I was curious to know how traffic to this blog would be affected if I stop writing for one week. The result is unbelievable:

  • Traffic to the site dropped 72%
  • Search referrers dropped 51%
  • In-page clicks dropped 70%

This, of course, is not a scientific experiment.  The statistics I provided above are merely correlated with one writing-free week, not caused by it.  Perhaps only a scientist would appreciate this post, but I thought I would share it with you anyway.
