in reply to Improve Perl's marketing position by making Perlmonks more discoverable for automated "popularity contests"

I'm pessimistic about the efficiency. :(

It's obvious that google doesn't parse perlmonks like other sites. I think they only read the node content.

The other footers like "PerlMonks was recently assimilated by The Perl Foundation." do not produce 1e6 hits but only about 30000.

Cheers Rolf

    As I do have now access to daily numbers (internal to Propaganda.pm), I would suggest you not being that pessimistic. ;-)

    One can clearly see a rise for Perl popularity. Slowly, but visible. In about 14 days we'll see what this (and other measures) have achieved. All I can say for now - it's worth it.

      The "The Perl Foundation" line comes in 4 flavors, chosen at random.

        OK thanks.

        I altered my signature, probably this will produce measurable effects.
