or How to score on Technorati Authority Ranking
I started this version of this blog on 1 June, so it’s new, it had zero authority with Technorati, I expected it to take time. But I’ve shot up to 94 in the space of 10 days. Pretty amazing for a personal blog I thought.
Then I took a closer look. It’s the same person, they’ve picked up that I used the word “shoe” in my post. And even though it refers to chocolate shoes they’ve hopefully (or more likely, automatically) loaded the content onto their 90 or so websites – many of which are probably hijacking someone’s brand – and bingo! My blog star is rising.
I think it’s hilarious, and points out a bit of a flaw in the system.
So my tip for gaining authority is to post a couple of blogs about shoes.
Nice irony if they pick up this post.
