When I was in Tucson last month, JWalk and I set up this little IFrame on his website that would show the last five entries on Daily Dose of Excel (it’s near the bottom). He had already done if for his blog, so it was it was just a challenge to see if we could hack enough php together to make it work. I didn’t expect the results I’m seeing.
On this website statistics page, it shows http://dicks-blog.com/headlines.php as the 2nd highest website referrer. I’m pretty sure John’s is the only site that uses that particular php file. And these stats aren’t just for the month, their all-time (all-time being since I started using extreme tracking back in late February). If you looked at just April, which I don’t know how to do, it would surely be the highest referrer.
I put an IFrame at the bottom of the sidebar so I can send half-a-dozen referrals his way every month. I don’t know if he’ll be able to tell they came from me, or if there’s anyway to change it so he can.
Maybe we should start an Excel RSS ring. Any Excel site with a feed can join and they all will have this IFrame showing the last five posts. Every time the user refreshes, they’d see a different sites “headlines”. Somebody set that up so I can join. :)
P.S. How do we make the background color customizable? Can I use an IFrame thingamajigger in my style sheet to override the color?
