So, I was looking at our Technorati account today and I noticed that we just broke the 1000 barrier, with a current ranking of 982. So according to Technorati, we are the 982nd ranked blog out of the 57 million blogs that Technorati tracks. Brian Pinkerton, Technorati’s director of search, recently did a great write-up on how Technorati counts blog links and calculates their ranking.
Of course a much more exclusive club, is the Technorati 100, which represents the top dogs of the blogosphere.
If you have a blog, then chances are that you are being tracked by Technorati. If you haven’t already, you should claim your blog, which will allow you to provide some additional information about your blog listing in Technorati’s search results. If your blog is not showing up in Technorati at all, you’ll need to make sure that you are properly pinging them.
Like FeedBurner’s FeedCount, the Technorati link count and ranking system is great for stats junkies like myself, providing additional motivation to continue posting interesting stuff, to keep existing readers, while gaining new ones.
