Remember Technorati’s once-authoritative blog ranking system? It’s dead.
There was once a time when Technorati.com meant something to online publishers. It was their professional reputation, and featuring on it was the goal of many. Technorati hosts its own ranking system to determine the influence of websites, based on their subject matter and a range of factors, including in- and outgoing links, which establish authority and credibility. It is the place where you want your site to rank high…
It’s notable, then, that Technorati actually quietly removed its ranking system — which was perhaps the best-known and most thorough of any blog index on the web — at the end of May, as noted by Business2community.com….
Instead, the six-year-old company is focusing on developing its website advertising network. It claims to have “thousands” of partners, with a network that “boasts more than 100 million unique US users per month.”
