Referral Update

Hello,
One of our contest prizes is the following:
Top 5 referers to the PokerStars Blogger Championship receive a very nice PokerStars Fleece Jacket. http://www.pokerstars.com/fpp_store.html

Here's a little commentary and update on that contest within a contest.

Well, of course referrals is how we are able to operate this tournament to the level we want to achieve so it helps us out. But the referral contest is also cool for the bloggers in 2 regards:
1. A cool fleece jacket! If you check out the link above and see the prize, it is very nice. I picked this prize because its one of the nicer prizes we have and a favorite of mine.
2. It again shows a little recognition of the top sites out there. Shows your readership level as being strong as well as loyal. A lot of online forms have a referred by field, but you actually have to get someone to take the action to fill it out as since it is usually not required. In order for someone to take a little time to fill it out (albeit 10 seconds), shows a little loyalty from the readers to give a little recognition and reward to the blogger.
*One little side note is that this field has been filled out more than I have seen in other forms I have developed over the year. A nice recognition for all the bloggers out there to fill out the field and show the flow of Internet traffic!

Well here is the current standings (taking out the top referrer being the PokerStars site itself):
1. Dr. Pauly himself at: http://www.taopoker.blogspot.com/ with a commanding 56 referrals and counting.
2. The fellas over at: http://www.upforanything.net/poker/ at 32
3. Our very own Wil Wheaton coming from: http://www.cardsquad.com/bloggers/wil-wheaton/ (his regular website: www.wilwheaton.net is having some issues right now, but sure that would be popular as well) at 21
4. One of our winners in the daily blog giveaway http://www.50outs.com with 18
5. Another winner of our daily blog contest Bill Rini http://www.billrini.com at 14
Rounding out the in the running with a little push!
6. Matt Matros: http://mattmatros.com/ at 13
7. Dead Money = Sir AlCantHang: http://www.alcanthang.com/poker/ at 13
8. DoubleAs: http://doubleas.blogspot.com/ at 13
9. Poker Chronicles: http://www.thepokerchronicles.com at 11
