Some good feedback on our new Blog page and People pages. It's great to read good things and we have a lot more in store for May. Stay tuned. Also some comments about Technorati Authority.
Technorati Authority is the number of blogs linking to a website in the last six months. The higher the number, the more Technorati Authority the blog has.
It is important to note that we measure the number of blogs, rather than the number of links. So, if I link to your blog many times, I still only count as +1 toward your authority. Of course, new links mean my +1 will last another 180 days.
Technorati Rank is calculated based on how far you are from the top as
expressed by the number of blogs linking to you. Since at the lower
end of the scale many blogs will have the same Technorati Authority, they will share the same Technorati Rank.
As of this writing, my blog has 16 inbound blogs, thus my Technorati Authority is 16. I'm sure there are many other blogs with 16 inbound blogs and we all have the same Technorati Rank.
Authority: 16 · Rank: 305,316
so, I'm 305,316 steps from the top of the charts, based on 16 blogs pointing to me.
