If you go to Technorati and look at any blog you will find that the listing of who favorited that blog is no longer there. In fact, except for the Top 100 Most Favorited blog list there is no indicator anywhere of how many fans a blog has!
Could this be an attempt to stop the abuse of the popular blog list?
As you can see from the above two screen captures BoingBoing has 1,939 fans but, when you click on the link you go to a page with no fan information.
Could this be a glitch or something else?
For those who do not know, a few weeks back a few people decided that they could get their blog onto the top 100 most favorited blog list quite easily. At the time blog #100 had less than 100 fans.
This lead to a meme post that ran through the blogosphere at great speed. This post encouraged people to favorite a bunch of blogs and then add theirs to the list. The results are obvious. The top 100 Favorited blog list is full of blogs that were not there a few weeks ago.
Some folks even started writing scripts that would find all the people who favorited them and reciprocate automatically!
So far the Technorati blog is silent on this matter...
