Linking To A CNN Article Can Give You Additional Traffic

I discovered this when I blogged about the 30-minute Obama ad where I linked to a CNN article. Minutes after blogging about it, I started receiving referral traffic from CNN. I found out that my blog post got a link from the “From the Blogs” section of their article under “Blogs linking to this story:”. Since that article was popular at that time, it sent my blog at least 60 new unique visitors from CNN.com.

The next time, I blogged about Obama winning the USA election. I linked again to a CNN article. And it sent me at least 35 new unique visitors.

Here’s a screen shot of my Google Analytics showing CNN referred visitors. (click for a larger view)

I actually twitted about it, Dexter tried it and he got his link on the CNN.com website too as you can see from the screen shot above. :)
