Oh god. Another List. Can you guys please quit writing Lists? It’s making my grocery lists put me into convulsions IRL.
It appears that there is another “list” out there, a blog ranking list that apparently goes by number of link-ins. Where they got their information I’m not positive, but I LOL’d at the fact that SCD is #8, the first of the Fashion blogs: http://www.secondeffects.com/2009/03/whos-biggest.html
I also LOL’d that two of the blogs on here haven’t had a new post in nearly a year, nevermind that Massively doesn’t really cover Second Life any more.
I wouldn’t have known about this list except I saw a bunch of Plurks related to it. Then I saw a plurk where someone says the list must be a bit fudged – and the creator, ArminasX Saiman, comes in USING CAPSLOCK TO DEFEND THEIR GOOD HONOR but really maybe they just have a shouting problem. He says it’s based on Technorati rankings.
Plurk: ArminasX says the rankings ARE NOT BASED ON HITS. Technorati bases them on external links instead, as they don’t know your hit stats
Are we sure? Are we sure these technorati rankings are good? Or, why research blogs that are no longer updating as previously mentioned?
I cleaned the list as best as time permitted; there are no doubt more errors in the list, such as incorrect blog names, probably a few more dead blogs and other miscues. There are over 500 blogs, give me a break, already!
So what’s the list for anyway, other than for some people to pat themselves on the back? Even if it was accurate.
