Finally on Wikio
Due to the efforts of his Grace, I am now on the official Wikio list of UK blogs. Still not on the top 300 table, but at 416 (this morning) and 165 in the “General” category, there’s room for improvement isn’t there?
Here’s how Wikio calculates its rankings
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.
Moreover, the weight of a link depends on the linking blogâ€™s position in the Wikio ranking. With our algorithm, the weight of a link from a top blog is greater than that of a link from a blog that is less well ranked.
Our rankings are updated on a monthly basis and also include Top Blogs for several categories: Technology, Politics, etc. New categories will be added on a regular basis.
Fascinating! Get linking away and perhaps in September I might be in the top 300. Woo!
