The slow slide up the Technorati ranks Gavin Stewart has an interesting post about the ‘long tail’ of blogs and Technorati rankings. Of course these rankings only measure perma(nent)links to your blog, rather than visits or any of the ‘old’ measures of a website’s popularity. But to confirm his findings – yesterday, with no Technorati links, I was ranked 2,700,000 + change. Today, with one link (from Writing and the Digital Life), I’ve moved up a million places in the rankings. More links please!
