    The new domain for the Delicious must have been very expensive to them.
    I think the guy who sold it, is still smiling about this.

    Love the interface but i don’t get any traffic from delicious, i usually get traffic from stumbleupon :\

    @Ibrahim Rabbani: The point of del.icio.us is not to get traffic. The point of del.icio.us is to discover new pages and sites and to store your favorite links. I mostly do the latter; I treat my bookmarks on del.icio.us as a library of links. However, traffic that you do get from del.icio.us is likely to be very targeted and useful traffic. Traffic on StumbleUpon is at random. When someone stumbles upon your page, they may just skip right on. But that’s still a hit in your logs, even if they barely glanced at it.

    oh, thanks for clearing it up for me.. i’ve been wondering for a long time why i got no traffic from delicious but.. don’t you just use delicious instead of google reader?
