We ask you the question... how do you measure the success of a/your blog post?
Things to consider before you answer:
People taking the time to drop you a comment is incredibly satisfying... but does 500 comments of 'Great Post' mean anything to you? Would you prefer 10 quality comments which start a conversation or an argument?
There is also something awesome about being retweeted a zillion times but a retweet doesn't necessarily mean a visit or a view. It just means that they are spreading the word, if you get retweeted 150 times but only one person clicks on it then is there any value?
Digg is well known for sending huuuuuge amounts of traffic. If you get dugg there is the potential of up to 50,000 unique visitors to your site but the chances of a return visit are not so great and a visit can last a few seconds.
