Blog Rankings

Looks like a new blog ranking site, or at least new to me.  Not sure what criteria they use, but congratulations to SayUncle for making the top 200, at 193.  The only gun blog to rank in the top 200 with all the other cool kids.  I missed the list at 218.  Something seems off with that.  Reflecting on Groucho Marx, who wouldn’t join any club that would have him a member, I’m skeptical of a rank that puts me that high, over others who run more popular blogs.

    From their website:

    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 blog’s position in the Wikio ranking. With our algorithm, the weight of a link from a blog that is more highly ranked 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.

    They rank my blog at 490. I’m a little surprised they even knew I existed.

    Well, I cracked the top 300. Barely. But I’m having a good time, which is all that counts. :D

    I’ll guess that any blog that’s had Instapundit link to it will rank higher based on the stated criteria.

    Those heathens don’t even recognize me. I must need more pictures of guns and USPSA stages or something.

    I find it interesting that the Brady Blog and a couple other anti-gun blogs aren’t found. The “Gun Guys” were the only one I found and they are over 3000.
