When is a trade news site not useful? When it does so little.

In fact, in the 2 years I published elsewhere, and not touched a single thing on this site, the articles I wrote here were STILL garnering some 50 page views a day. This is down dramatically from when I was publishing new content, but testimony to the quality of the work I produce.
So it really bugs me when I see competitors to TechThoughts, and to EventDV Magazine and Web site, for which I am a owner, and contributing editor, respectively, getting traffic for writing as little as TWO SENTENCES and linking to something else.
