A webometrician’s woes: Ignorance is bliss

Filed under: metrics,technorati — admin @ 5:00 pm

According to Technorati my ‘Webometric Thoughts’ blog has hurtled up the blog rankings, in fact if it was on an old episode of Top of the Pops it would be this week’s fastest climber. Climbing rapidly from position 7,966,799 to position 2,572,229, it can surely only be a matter of moments before the whole of the web is talking about my profound insights into life, the universe and everything!…unfortunately this is not the case, web statistics are rarely that simple, or rather in Technorati’s case are even more simple.

Technorati’s authority is based on the number of blogs linking to a site in the last 180 days…and the one link that I currently have will soon disappear as is was automatically created due to my support of Blog Action Day, so at the moment of my greatest success I must mentally prepare for the day I become the highest faller in the charts…unless of course I get the currently required authority of 31,619 blogs to beat Engadget and become top of the blogs!
