Those who follow this blog, know that I have spent quite some time with manually putting together top lists of travel bloggers according to Technorati in the past. The last one I published over a year ago on my TList page and for prior lists you can check out in my Tlist Category:
- The 300 of Halloween last year. which is also at the TList page
- The Update of January last year
- The update of December, 2007 ah but that post doesn’t give you a list itself…
- That of November, 2007
I did pray that someone would come up with a better measurement to replace my dumb work. Moreover at the time Technorati seemed too outdated and too infested with scrapers and sploggers and what all.
In June I discovered Frothy‘s Alexa only ranking.
From time to time I checked those and had a good reason not to go further with my own cumbersome list making.
But now Technorati has really cleaned its act and rolled out a completely new approach in their Blog ranking. I have a feeling that they are moving in the same direction as Google search is moving. A nice way of reinventing yourself Technorati!
Each ranking has its own pros and contras, but if you want to quickly orientate yourself about influential travelblogs you can have a look at both lists and make your pick, while I can concentrate on other content here:-)
