: The new designer-blue Technorati is up (I’d been using the beta for a few weeks). It’s nice: cleaner with some new features Dave Sifry outlines here.
: In my regular ego checks to see how I rank on the Top 100, I have found this puzzling trend: The number of inbound blogs linking to me keeps going up, but my rank stays essentially the same of late (and I’m quite delighted with that rank, I should add) because everybody’s numbers are rising: The tide raises all boats. I’ll think I can beat Gawker if I hit, say, 1200 blogs and then we both get more and so does everybody above us.
So the question: Is this because Technorati is getting more and more blogs (11k per day) and the have the same links other blogs have? Is this a viral effect: links beget links and they do it proportionately?
