For a while now I have been slowly working my way up the Technorati ladder. When I first became aware of Technorati I had a ranking in the 90K range. Last week I broke into the 50K range. This morning I checked and found myself sitting at 15,955!
I'm sitting at this rank because 341 links from 213 blogs link to me. I would like it if Technorati had a tab that would just list the blogs and not the posts but they do not.
Looking through the blogs that link to me I see a sudden increase in blogs that use the top commentator plugin. This plugin adds a link to the page (I use it) for a certain number of top commentators. Funny things is that it adds it to EVERY page!
Because I am a top commentator on John Chow's blog I get a link back from a large number of his posts!
I just started reading Shoemoney and now I have three links from him. All because I left some comments.
As much as I enjoy the boost to my Technorati ranking I have to wonder if this is a good or bad thing.
