Either Media Orchard is self-serving and wants heaps of links, or this is a legitimate test of whether Technorati picks up posts properly.
Personally, I am quite happy with Technorati. It updates my ranking regularly, though I have to wonder if going ofﬂine for a day is going to harm things.
But Media Orchard believes some of us should link to a certain post as a Technorati test. I may as well join the experiment to give the folks there a hand. Feel free to do the same—the blog and rationale are here. Posted by Jack Yan, 00:18
I hope he's not fishing for links, because this really won't help him much. He's going to get a buncha links from his regular readers, who have already linked to him anyway, so it really won't help his TRari link count.
But Scott follows this stuff closely enough to know that TRati does this from time to time. IMO this is just a ploy to get some cheap links.
Sorry I didn’t respond earlier, Mack: with the server HD going I had a bit to catch up on and I didn’t get back to this post. You are probably right: while I am not a regular reader, I am acquainted with it, so I would have linked to it in one form or another because of a blog post. Secondly, once this is off the ﬁrst page (which is likely to happen today), that’s one less link overall as far as Google is concerned.Post a Comment

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
