A Technorati Ranking is becoming a must-have for all blogs and sites that feature user generated content.? Technorati ranks these sites by the number of links and blogs that link to your particular site.?Although?Google has been using this criteria as part of it’s search engine rank formula for some time now, Technorati is still the biggest site. ?
I want to give you a quick update on our climb up the Technorati ranks and thank you, the readers and fellow bloggers, who have made this climb possible.? Technorati truly does strengthen ties in the blogging community and encourages good content because people will not link to your blog if the content is not good.? Sites like Text-Link-Ads now use Technorati ranking in determining the cost of advertising on a particular blog.
CareerRamblings.com went live on January 29th, although it existed under a different domain for a month prior.? For the purposes of this post, I will stick to the Jan 29th date because any links from the prior domain did not transfer to this domain when we made the switch.? In the 21 days of this blog’s life, it has gone from a beginning rank of 1.8 million to 87,000 currently.? We still have a long way to go to reach the 445th ranked blog?but this is no small feat considering that Technorati tracks 68.7 million blogs.? The reason I mention the 445th ranked blog is because his climb up Technorati has been the most amazing ascent yet.?
