Why don’t you use a memetracker?

Over the last few months I’ve been asking people I meet who read my blog (or who say they do, at least) about whether or not they read Memorandum (or the competitors like TailRank, Blogniscient, Digg, Megite, or Chuquet).

Only a small percentage of people even know what I’m talking about. Which is strange. (And, that finding is matched by traffic coming from these sites — Digg is the only one that really has a ton of traffic when I compare notes with other bloggers).

By the way, Google only has 713 results when you search for “memetrackers.” MSN has 2,943 101 memetracker results. (Funny enough, both search services’ numbers are inaccurate if you actually count the links, thanks to my readers who pointed that out).

One place I’ve been watching this new space is on TechCrunch (Arrington wrote about the Memeorandum Hunters a few days ago).

So, what I wanted to ask is: “why don’t you use a memetracker?”
