Unexpectedly Intriguing!
April 7, 2008

And lo, about an hour ago on what was shaping up to be a light traffic day around these parts, Clark Howard casually mentioned to his listeners that a link to our tool for helping you decide whether you should trade in your old gas guzzler was posted on his web site (or at least, we suspect he did - we were out at lunch!)

Clark Howard Traffic Spike

Clark has already directed enough traffic our way to push our "Is It Worth the Drive" tool off our top ten list, and has perhaps already displaced others in the rankings. We'll officially update our list of our ten most popular posts once the dust settles.

And if anyone out there is wondering what the best way to drive increased traffic to your blog might be, we can perhaps definitively answer: radio, preferably with the on-air endorsement of a show's host, who preferably has a sizable following. Compared to the surge in traffic we saw following his having featured the tool in his TV work back in late March, today's spike in our site traffic is absolutely amazing!

What else can we say? Our thanks to Clark and his team!
