In Praise of Sphinn’s One-Hit Wonder

One Hit Wonders

If you browse through the Greatest Hits section on Sphinn, you’ll see the charts dominated by many of the most familiar names in SEO and Social Media: Tamar, Danny Sullivan, Lyndon, Lee Odden, Vanessa Fox, Rand, John Andrews, and I snuck in there, too.

In each case, these are people who have been on Sphinn for a long time and have a measure of name recognition — they’re on the charts a lot, their submissions go hot on a consistent basis. But like any Greatest Hits chart, it wouldn’t be complete without the obligatory One-Hit Wonder. And Sphinn has its own one-hit wonder right here:

Sphinn’s one-hit wonder

That’s currently the fourth-hottest hit in Sphinn history, and it comes from a user with the name KangoTraveler. Here are a few things to know about KangoTraveler:

  • This is his only “gone hot” submission. (the very definition of a one-hit wonder!)
  • He’s only submitted three other times, none in the last month-plus.
  • He’s only shared two comments on Sphinn, the most recent being 163 days ago.
  • He’s only voted on 11 other articles, none since December.

In other words, KangoTraveler is Sphinn’s very own Gary Numan, A-Ha, and Toni Basil all rolled into one. Somehow, Sphinn’s Greatest Hits just wouldn’t seem right without him.

So with that in mind, a quick note to KangoTraveler, wherever he is: Keep your feet on the ground, and keep reaching for the stars. 🙂

    I had noticed that the people like Dosh Dosh are even in the top 10 yet have over 300 “hot” posts already
