Ranking by Wikio.

If you are wondering how these rankings are compiled, here is what Wikio says:
The position of a blog in the Wikio ranking depends on the number and weight of the incoming links from other blogs. These links are dynamic, which means that they are backlinks or links found within articles.

Only links found in the RSS feed are included. Blogrolls are not taken into account, and the weight of any given link increases according to how recently it was published. We thus hope to provide a classification that is more representative of the current influence levels of the blogs therein.

Moreover, the weight of a link depends on the linking blog’s position in the Wikio ranking. With our algorithm, the weight of a link from a blog that is more highly ranked is greater than that of a link from a blog that is less well ranked.

i assume your not highlighting #75 is an egregious oversight :) Even though she has disappeared off the face of the earth and I am missing her dreadfully :) Congrats on remaining top 30 :P

Where is she by the way? Long vacay?

Brad said...

Bah--thanks for the highlight, but I've given up on this ranking system. Popular months I'm down, slower months I'm seems so arbitrary despite the description!

Congrats - and Congrats to Poster Girl, even though she's missing at the moment!
