For those who come looking for a short, thoughtful read, a blogging life discussion, or a way to gradually ease back into the week. I offer this bloggy life question. . . .
It’s a real-life question tonight. . . .
In March, I wrote a post in response to a bad experience at an “elite” social networking site. I’ll wait while you check it out. . . .
In a day or so, two things happened.
- My post made the first page of Google for the keyword doostang.
- My LinkedIn account showed that someone from Doostang had visited my profile. No one attempted to contact me.
Mid-May that post started to draw 5% to 10% of my daily search traffic. As you can see by the comments there, it can’t be helping Doostang’s elite self-defined profile as social network for top tier talent.
This week, I saw traffic from The New York Times article by Andrew Ross Sorkin, called Social Networking on Wall Street. The comments were less than favorable. Someone named John had left a link to my original article there.
I’ll wait while you take a look.
Doostang just launched a new look targeted at college elite.
If Doostang asked for your advice, what would you tell them to do?
