Super Sonic Technorati - It's the SST

We just launched, not one, but two sites. This has been in the works for a while, but it has been absolutely amazing how the team has cranked, raised the bar, and changed direction only to make things even better. It's like you tell them, "We will now climb this mountain.", and they look at me and say, "No, we should MOVE this mountain! We should totally f***in' move it!". And then, they do.


Dave Sifry talks about it here and here.

And the Smokin' or if you want to save some typing. Get ready to be blown away.

A bit of banter with Beth - back and forth

Beth has some nice things to say about the Technorati changes here -> Technorati’s Update: And They Know EVERYTHING About Me?.

And you have to check out the pretty shade of blue juxtaposed with the shiny green of her newly configured Technorati Authority widget.

Technorati Authority and some cosmetic improvements

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.
