Blog rank monitoring – one month later…

These are the results for the blogs from the origin list that I started monitoring since 2/12/2008. I only report here on blogs moving up in rank. Take in consideration that during that time Technorati checks for the freshness of the incoming links (blog reaction) and modify the rank (mostly down). I think that the ones that went up in rank during this time are doing excellent. Good work brother bloggers!

One highlight is PR Meets Marketing. This blog managed during this time to cross up tiers from tier3 to tier2 (the rank is less than 100,000).

The bolded blogs are doing amazingly.

I’m still not where I want this project to be but it is fun to see the numbers over time (at least for me).

Anyway I hope to grow the list in the following month and to get more step automated.

Feel free to use this data to show how good you are. I noticed a reference to my results in Mahalo Daily Press Coverage, it was not the origin title but a summary of the results – cool!

    Interesting…a couple thoughts, what you’re doing is somewhat introducing a more complex type of measurement – adding an activity or buzz rating on top of the traditional Technorati metric. Any thought of measuring Alexa rank vs. Technorati rank vs. Technorati authority?

    I think it would be really interesting to see the changes between these – in theory a higher rated, higher ranked technorati blog (like Technobabble, Alexa rank 626,018 / Technorati Rank 39904 Authority 154) should be more valuable and able to generate higher CPMs than a blog like mine, OnlineVideoWatch (Alexa rank 289,586 / Technorati Rank 51019 Authority 125), at least once ad targeting gets good enough.

    My audience may be larger but your rankings tend to indicate that my readership is less valuable per capita…Right?

    Hi Ben,
    You have some good points in your comment.
    Rank and authority are only implicitly connected with traffic. I guess that some blogs get very few blogs reaction but could be a big magnet for traffic. Now when we have Twitter it is even easier to route traffic under Technorati radar.
    I did mention the option to track that and more in this post:
    Bloggers clustering
    In this post I did not meant to show the worth of one blog over another based on Technorati rank. My intention was to show the trajectory relative to one’s own blog.
    Rank monitoring is a tip of the iceberg but in my world it is considered a “lead”.
    I hope to make it more interesting in the future.
    I really like that you help me thinking about it, thank you.

    Finally! My switch to WordPress seems to be catching back up to pre-Wordpress traffic levels!
