BLOGS/LOCAL: Traffic quadruples for "CoastSider" after road closure
Barry Parr, the former San Francisco daily editor and news industry
analyst, says traffic at his "CoastSider" local online news community has
quadrupled since a major road closure last week.
" . . . [W]e had a huge story here last week when one of two roads that connect us to the outside world (Devil's Slide, you took it from SF) was closed, probably for 3 months. I beat the HMB Review senseless and my traffic is now about 4x what it was before the closure. I've hit an inflection point. I've been telling people that I've been working toward this moment for two years and didn't even know it.
