How Much Traffic Can I Generate By Placing Eliot Spitzer and Ashley Alexandra Dupre In A Blog Title?

I am curious to see what type of traffic I can generate by posting a blog with the words Eliot Spitzer and Ashley Alexandra Dupre in it. I apologize if this ticks off any of my 5 regular readers, but I just want to see what happens.

The idea actually came to me courtesy of ftm.com who recommended that daily newspapers that were on the ball this week should have/could have/probably did bid on these Google & Yahoo keywords. Anyway, I will post the results if anything interesting happens.

Sorry again for the lack of content in the post.

    Is that a knock on your five regular readers? If so, I’m one of them.

    Not in the least was my post a knock on my readers. It was purely a self-deprecating comment. I am actually quite happy with my growing readership – my RSS subscribers is slowly gaining traction, and my unique visitors per day is climbing. It’s just never as high as I’d like it to be. So to you and all of the people who read this blog – thank you and I hope you continue to find it worth your while.

    I was reading the news on Google and noticed that you were running an experiment. It was not the title of your blog entry that captured my attention. It was the one line of text underneath the title that set the hook. However, you’re title certainly helped bubble it up so I could stumble across it. This is my first time adding comments to a blog. So in some small way your test has yielded some positive results. I realize you were aiming for increased traffic but I think it is just as important to increase participation but that is the engine that drives it. I probably won’t visit the blog again but who knows… I am a bit curious about what else you have written and just maybe you have the potential to keep the buzz alive by posting interesting content.

    Lief and I were part of the original five, Phil and John Doe make seven.

    Looks like an experiment with results.
