ME-P Now on Technorati Finance and Wikio Health

What is Technorati Authority and Wikio for Blogs?

By Staff Reporters

Pensive WomanOn Friday May 4th, 2007, was updated to include the Technorati Authority for blogs and listed on their Blog page and in search results. This update changed the earlier references of “N blogs link here” and “X links from Y blogs” with the single Technorati Authority number. On the blog page, it also shows the Technorati Rank.

Technorati Authority

Technnorati Authority [TA] is the number of blogs linking to a website, like this ME-P, in the last six months. The higher the number, the more Technorati Authority we have. It is important to note that Technorati measures the number of blogs, rather than the number of links. So, if a blog links to the ME-P many times, it still only counts as +1 toward our authority. Of course, new links mean the +1 will last another 180 days.

Technorati Calculations

Technorati Rank is calculated based on how far we are from the top. The blog with the highest Technorati Authority is the #1 ranked blog. The smaller our Technorati Rank, the closer we are to the top. Since at the lower end of the scale many blogs will have the same Technorati Authority, they will share the same Technorati Rank.

Technorati Rankings

The Technorati Top 100 shows the most popular 100 blogs based on Technorati Authority. The #1 ranked blog is the blog forum with the most other distinct blogs linking to it in the last 6 months. If our blog’s rank is, say 305,316, this indicates that there are 305,315 blog ranks separating our blog from the #1 position.

Help Increase our ME-P Rankings

The best way to increase our ME-P Technorati Authority is to write and submit cogent posts and fascinating comments that are interesting to other like-minded ME-P bloggers; so they’ll link to us. Why? Swagger, and free-labor journalistic entrepreneurship, of course. Linking to source material when you blog is also a great way to engage in conversation and help others find what you find interesting. Finally, since we want to let readers see our Technorati Authority on this blog, we have just installed the TA [and Wikio] widgets for all our ME-P readers and subscribers [June 2009]



Remember, authority is determined by the number of unique blogs indexed by Technorati that have linked to us in the past 180 days. Thus, as links from blogs age out of this window and new links are added, our ME-P authority may rise, fall, or stay the same over time. Also, if the same blog links to us many times in the past 180 days, it only counts once towards our authority though it does renew the age of link. Additionally, the link must appear in our blog reactions to be applied to our authority. If the links are not in our blog reactions, please check to see if the blogs and/or your post with the links are in Technorati. If they are not, then encourage blog owners to ping Technorati; or better yet to claim their blogs in Technorati (gives the blog higher priority). And so, blogs are submitted for review and then indexed by Technorati for their blogs and posts.
