On how important social media has become, Karp shared that the bulk of traffic that Tumblr sees comes from Twitter and Facebook. Not Google. This isn’t surprising, but speaks volumes about the real-time value of Tumblr. While most blogs rely on Google for the bulk of its traffic, Tumblr has carved itself a niche that is a hybrid between real-time and static content. Basically, the company has built the best of both worlds.

On a new post on the Google blog they note how live shows or concert links are now going to be pulled into artist search. A brilliant thing, perhaps the next thing they can do is stop linking to album files and mp3 on upload sites!
“To find upcoming concert tour dates, we aggregate relevant data for events from multiple websites and show it under the band’s official website with links to the event sites where you can find out more about the event or purchase tickets.”
It looks like Google will pull the info directly from band sites and ticketing sites rather than last.fm and / or Songkick that can often be inaccurate.

And just like that Songkick gets in trouble.
