Mimbo News from All Over

Stats

Since its release in August, the numbers for Mimbo have been shaping up:

  • Just over 6500 total downloads
  • Bandwidth for darrenhoyt.com is up to 15GB/month
  • Technorati ranking has tripled due to backlinks
  • I’ve begun stumbling across Mimbo-themed sites by accident

Re: the effect of themes on Technorati rank, a Swedish blogger named Andreas Viklund found himself ranked #1 at Technorati back in June due to the success of his free templates. He noted something else I agree with: Technorati ranking, in practice, falls somewhere between “mostly useless” and “entirely inconsistent”. But all the same, I’m interested in seeing the effects a theme can have.

Internationally, the top downloads for Mimbo have come from:

  • Italy
  • France
  • India
  • United States
  • United Kingdom
