Just checked my stats from The Blog Herald, I’ve slipped out of the top 200 blogs, and yet its reading no updates for 12 days and the link count is the same it was about 2 weeks ago. Pretty hard to rank a blog when you’re not updating the link count, and yet the overall ranking continues to change. Got to say I’m disappointed Dave Sifry.
Update: just thinking some more, the MSM is basically happy to report Technorati stats as being representative of the entire blogosphere, despite there being 54 million people using MySpace (who have blogs) and Technorati is broken again. Does this mean that not only are a whole pile of people in the mainstream media lazy, they are also relying on flawed stats? I don’t want to Technorati bash because I truly like Technorati, but if I was the polling organisation and my polling was clearly flawed because my systems are broken (again…so it would seem) would I be taken seriously as well???
