And even if I didn’t know the start and end dates, such dates are easily deducible by recent blog activity. On the day ISM started, daily hits dropped by about a third. Now that ISM has been over for a day, hits are up. Way up – by over 50% relative to the norm as the hordes of practitioners lost in the glaring lights of Vegas find their way back onto the internet and back to their favorite blogs. But I am curious – did any other bloggers notice such a significant effect on blog hits from this event? And has any other event had such a significant effect on sourcing and procurement blog readership?
