After reading Neil’s post about Pronet Advertising, Search Engine Land and Online Marketing Blog making Technorati’s Popular 100 list, I thought I’d search T’rati a bit more and noticed an Authority score starting to appear next to the blogs in the search results. I know a widget was released that blogs could use to show their Technorati score earlier last month I believe, but this is the first I’ve seen it on the Technorati site.
Here’s a screenshot:
Since I’m one to have fun with lists, I thought I’d take the Search Marketing Blogs by Feedburner RSS Subscribers list and see what their Technorati scores were. I am assuming “authority” is an indication of inbound links withing a certain amount of time. The higher the number, the more authority.
Here are the results:
www.shoemoney.com – 4,343
www.mattcutts.com/blog – 3,876
searchengineland.com – 3,774
www.pronetadvertising.com – 3,664

Search Technorati for your blog URL and see what authority score comes up. If you’re a link magnet, it could be interesting.
