My blog is worth $1,693.62.
How much is your blog worth?

Some of us are just pathetic. I've had this journal since 2001. I have made over 5,000 posts. But I have never promoted myself. It was never my intent. Yet I feel like I should.

Huh! According to this, I'm worth $13K. Where can I cash in???

(What is this based on, do you figure?)

It's based on links, as I understand it. I guess I just don't have the stuff. People don't link to me.

I don't think so, no one links to me...my LJ is flocked all the way. Unless they count number on flist? 'Tis a mystery!

Anyway, screw money :)

Well, I've heard technorati uses techniques that aren't that meaningful. So we can just forget it!

*snicker* It says mine's worth a little over $5K.

So much for my wife thinking my sims aren't worth anything, huh?

Silly meme's.

Mom,

It's not accurate. Technorati isn't very sophisticated and that valuation method is just plain wrong.

For example, they count one of the guys who scrapes my stuff because he links back to me. They have counted my internal links. They have counted links from my other blogs, even when they're identical, like when I moved from LJ to WP and I mirrored all my posts so my LJ friends could keep up with my move.

Then, they still refuse to count 2kbloggers.com and other blogs are on their shit list, too. It's just plain wrong. Don't put too much emphasis on it.

However, if you do want to promote yourself more, you'll get more traffic from Google than you'll get from Technorati (at least now, in the beginning). So suck up to them by set up pretty permalinks that end in HTML, creating and submitting a site map, linking internally, and using very descriptive keywords liberally.

Later on you can work on sucking up to Technorati if you want. A lot of that is just plain old fashioned reciprical linking, (which I hate because it's meaningless), and buying link placements like John Chow does.

It's all bullshit, though. None of it has to do with quality of content. It's all just marketing skills and web savvy. It's lame and it's NOT what the Internet is about.

PS I love you :)

I meant to login but didn't. I always do that.

Yeah, I knew it was you, of course, and I knew Technorati isn't prime anyway, I just thought the thing was funny.
