Pyramid Z List

Hey! I’m at the center of a blogger meme. (and at the top of a pyramid scheme!)

Mack over at the Viral Garden thinks some of the “Z-listers” are getting messed over by the insane way that Technorati ranks “authority”. (Read his original post here)

Mack was kind enough to recognize this blog as one that needs more attention paid to it (frankly, I feel the same way). So, I’m paying the “link love” forward…

Here’s Mack’s original list…
Shotgun Marketing Blog
Customers Rock!
Being Peter Kim
And here are the ones I think are unrecognized…
Presentation Zen
Dmitry Linkov
John Wagner

Copy/paste the above list and add yours in a blog post.

Since Mack posted this list…about 12 people have linked to me.
And my Technorati rank? It hasn’t moved even though all the new posts are listed. How sad that Technorati is the best tool we have for measuring blogs.

And another huge thanks to Mack for thinking the drivel I throw up here is worth spreading.

    You won’t see an immediate change in Technorati. It takes some folks actually clicking through to your site. If you don’t see anything in a few days, you may want to contact them.

    For quite a long period of time, they weren’t indicating any changes to my blog or to links to the blog… it was a problem on their end. They were gracious in correcting it swiftly, though.

    Alexa seems to be gaining momentum for accurate measurement of sites. Some folks were rather negative, but the more people test, the more accurate it seems to be getting.

    In the end, I don’t think Technorati does too bad a job. You might try MyBlogLog – I’ve been getting a lot of exposure through their network. In fact, I trashed the rest of the ‘blog network links’ on my page with MyBlogLog since it’s been so successful.

    Chris … thanks for the shout-out.

    I’ve given up worrying about Technorati. It only took me about two years.
