Is blogging important? 157 million hits says it is!

Whew, they just sent around the latest stats from our employee blogs at http://blogs.technet.com and http://blogs.msdn.com and those two sites combined had about 157 million hits. Now, keep in mind that doesn't mean visitors, but, still, if you told me three years ago that our blog sites would be getting hit that hard within three years I would have looked at you like you were doing crack.

By the way, we should thank the folks over at Telligent who make the excellent Community Server, which runs those blogs.

  5. [...] Alla fine devo dire che CommunityServer è una piattaforma veramente completa, con il support a blog, forum, gallerie fotografiche e tutte le funzioni di amministrazione che ci aspetterebbe da un sistema del genere. Inoltre risulta anche oltremodo scalabile se pensate che usata su Blogs.msdn.com ha retto 157 milioni di hits nel solo mese appena trascorso (i dati li ha resi pubblci in maniera un po’ carbonara Robert Scooble sul suo blog ).
