The Cat is In The Charts


This link takes you to the Wikio News website where they have lists of the "most influential blogs in the UK and Irish blogospheres". Now look down the list for environment. Go to number 38. There I am.

So I wondered what criteria was used:

"The position of a blog in the Wikio ranking depends on the number and weight of the incoming links from other blogs. These links are dynamic, which means that they are backlinks or links found within articles.
Only links found in the RSS feed are included. Blogrolls are not taken into account, and the weight of any given link increases according to how recently it was published. We thus hope to provide a classification that is more representative of the current influence levels of the blogs therein.
Only links found in RSS feeds are counted. Blogrolls are not taken into account.
In December 2010, retweets were added as an additional factor to the ranking algorithm. For each twitter account, only one backlink per blog is taken into account each month."

Which i think means that due to neglect I probably won't be rating very high in September. Still nice to know that the effort I put in a month ago seems to have had an effect. Must try harder though, I think is the underlying conclusion I will take away from this.
