We’re All #1 On Technorati

by

I’ve thought for a while that Technorati serves no purpose beyond tracking inbound links and stroking egos. Today, Technorati unveiled the culmination of its ego-stroking strategy — we’re ALL #1 on Technorati:

Check it out before they fix the bug and feel the joy of #1.

  1. Shurely shome mishtake? Actually, it is – Scott Karp over at Publishing 2.0 has just noticed that virtually every blog on Technorati is currently showing a No.1 ranking. Hit it now to record the moment, before the web monkeys come along and fix it…

  2. ll know my opinion on such “rankings.”) The current ego-boost is courtesy of a bug that makes every blog #1 today. Don’t know how long it will last, so go record a screen grab of your blog’s ranking. (via: Scott Karp

  4. Geez – and I thought I was special!
    :-)

  5. That’s like one of those photographers you can hire for events who take pictures of people and superimpose them on the cover of a magazine. Knowing Technorati, the bug will stay that way for weeks. Only bloggers will notice — not real people. :)

  6. I noticed that and thought HUH? I knew they were changing, upgrading whatever and had become PING-unreliable during all this but…this is odd. Thanks for writing about it.

    Now can you unravel what it means?

  7. Too late. I guess I’ll have to content myself with the usual wild and irrational swings between ranking 500 and 4000.

  9. Damn :-)

  10. So other people have WILD swings in ranking lately too?

    Mine has varied (rank wise) 5000! And the authority 100!

    I can’t figure it out. It makes no sense to me.

  11. No, WE’RE number one – y’all are just losers ;-)

  12. Hey Scott – I just started following P2.0 a couple of weeks ago.

    I didn’t realize we shared a brain: http://occamsrazr.com/2007/08/04/all-downhill-from-here/
