My blog’s influence

My influence

Basically, it’s a ranking scheme that uses you Google PageRank, your Technrati inlinks, and your Bloglines subscriptions to determine how “influential” you are. I am one-millionth as influential as Slashdot, for example, and about a fiftieth of Smart Mobs, where I read about it.

    Wouldl be more accurate if Bloglines wasn’t given such weight. Perhaps they should pull subscription numbers from Feedburner instead.

    I agree. Though I think feedburner estimated Bloglines subs as well, no?

    If the goal is influence… Every couple of years I’ve changed my blog address. Sure, it pisses off Jeremy and a few people, but it ensures that it doesn’t flip the bit and become part of the pund-o-phere. I sleep better at night and can stand looking at myself in the mirror that way.
