Rand and I were having a chat on the actual phone yesterday. Wonderful old school technology this phone is… Anyhow, in the course of the conversation we discussed the blog world and more specifically our blogs and even more specifically the Top 100 lists at Technorati. For those handful of you that occassionally read this blog you’ve hopefully noticed a greater effort to post more regularly. Since upping my game here on the blog my Technorati ranking has actually plummeted like a bird that died in flight. Enter the experiment…how many people does take to screw in a lightb…er…does it take to favorite a blog into the to Top 100 Favorited list at Technorati? Rand and I are asking all our readers to favorite our blogs and post in the comments. I will favorite you all back as well. Just post here and include your Technorati link so I don’t have to go hunting – cuz I won’t. 😉 As of this post my ranking is 6838 (even lower than yesterday – wtf?) and has been favorited 22 times. I’ll definitly share traffic data etc as this experiment progresses. I do know for a fact that several folks have gamed the Top 100 with some clever programming etc but I’m not a coder nor do I really want to pay one so we’ll do it manually and see if we can have decent or even better results.
