Why Memeorandum and DIGG are so great: they link out.

I think I’m addicted to Tech.Memeorandum... even more so than DIGG. Either way, these two sites are amazing and they’ve been sending our network a ton of traffic (DIGG more so than Memeorandum). It’s great to have new portals that put blogs on the same level as MSM… that’s the real contribution here.

  • Go to NYTIMES.COM and find me one line–ONE LINK–to anything other than the NYTIMES.COM domain or an advertisement. Pathetic.
  • Go to CNET and find me one link to anything other than their own echo chamber. Sad.
  • Go to Yahoo.com and find one link to something they don’t own. Nada.

Go to DIGG and Memeorandum and they have 20-100 links out to other sites–they are generous with their traffic, just like blogs are!!! They get it and they are gonna crush the old school portals.
