A Tale Of Two Technoratis

Blog-rater Technorati has revamped, or they're revamping, or something. The results seem a bit...off:548?!?! OMG! I'm an Internet G*ddess!
Or am I? Go to look up any links to my blog and:Suddenly, they've never even heard of me. (Also, Newly Discovered "Features," WTF? Self-applied scorn quotes, so early in the website redo? Sad).

I pay way too much attention to these things.

I like what you write... when I understand it anyway. :)

Of course you're a 'net Goddess. So why bother with the other stuff?

Borepatch said...

Yah, happened to me, too. Went from around 25 to 520.

First reaction: wh00t!

Second reaction: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.

But I'll second James' comment. ;-)

I have near identical results (563 and 0) and reaction.

They just broke what I considered their major feature.

I stopped worrying about what Technorati had to say shortly after I started blogging. I blog for my own reasons, and if anyone wants to read it, fine. If not, that's fine too.

I do use Sitemeter just to scratch the "curiosity itch" about how many folks show up and from where, but honestly, there are times where I think looking at that is counterproductive.

I use SiteMeter for surfing more than I do my actual blogroll. :o

Couldn't care less what rating you have, Roberta. I read you every day that I can. You ... and your roomie ... justify the existence of the 'Net ... in Indiana, anyway.

Regards.

That's nice to hear, especially after a long, hard day of starship engineering. :)
