The Life Cycle of a Blog Post, From Servers to Spiders to Suits -- to You

Do you know what happens whenever you click on the 'Publish' button to post your blog entry?
Check out this simple to understand Flash diagram.
If you're not a techie, then let me summarise it for ya. Whenever you publish your blog post, a lot of information about you and whatever you've written gets sent to Search Engines (so they may index your blog content) and dataminers/advertisers. The information gleaned from this helps corporations sell better and more. It's also feedback for how effective their marketing techniques may be.

So now you know where spam and targeted pop-up ads come from eh?

Ok...gonna click on 'Publish Post' now...hehehe!
