John Chow dot Com Ranked #1 on Technorati


I have done it! I am ranked number 1 on Technorati! Yes, it took a while, but John Chow dot Com has finally hit the number 1 spot. It’s too bad Technorati still refuses to put me in their official Top 100 list.

Reality Check Time

OK, I’m not really ranked one 1 on Technorati (I’m really ranked 47). However, it appears Technorait has a glitch in their ranking system and every blog in their system has a number 1 ranking. Now would be a good time to take a screen shot to show all your readers you’re amazing number one ranking! 😈

*Update – Looks like Technorati fixed the glitch. I am back at number 47. Hope you all got your screen shots.

    3. I am ranked #1 as well just like you mentioned πŸ˜‰

  2. Yay. For once in my life I feel like someone. My blog is visited by no-one anyway πŸ™‚

  3. Daniel says:

    Your blog supposed to be the number one…gud luck…

    1. Glen Allsopp says:

      Well I certainly wasnt surprised when I read the title, more surprised that I found out he was joking πŸ™‚

  4. V. Neely says:

    I just snagged my Technorati screen shot. Just for posterity and all that. πŸ™‚

    1. ForumeR says:

      Hope it will help πŸ˜€

  5. I wouldn’t be surprised if your blog DID become number one John, shoot for the stars!

  6. Glen Allsopp says:

    linkbait, and its gonna work

  7. Rhea says:

    Congratulations! Everyone should be No. 1 at least once. πŸ˜†

  8. Josh Buckley says:

    I always wondered how long it would take for me to get that spot! 😈

    1. Glen Allsopp says:

      haha Josh, just keep up the hard work on the blog and you never know, it might stay like that πŸ˜›

  9. Deelip says:

    Shame Technorati.

    1. Glen Allsopp says:

      I agree, they dont really seem solid these days

  10. Ali says:

    Why is redirecting to you now?

    Were you the one that sent Cow the cease and desist letter, what’s going on here?

    1. cooliojones says:

      See his other post: Miscellaneous Ramblings: Weekend Edition for the explanation to this.

      1. Ali says:

        Gotcha, thanks.

      2. dcr says:

        That still doesn’t answer why is now redirecting here.

  11. simon says:

    Great! but too bad Technorati doesn’t put you in Top 100 list.

  12. 40hourstogo says:

    Woo Hoo, I’m #1!

  13. Fatgadget says:

    Congratulations John, well done.

    I am now ranked no1 on Technorati also and it only took me 2 months 😈

    1. Glen Allsopp says:

      Well im pretty happy at doing it in 4 days, was hoping to be a bit quicker though 😈

  14. dcr says:

    Dang you, John Chow! πŸ˜₯ I thought I was the first to think of this. Took my screenshot, then I started browsing blogs and came to yours…

  15. Good eye, I definitely took a screen of that.

  16. cooliojones says:

    I saw this an hour or so ago, and I got my screen shot. Engadget must not be happy! πŸ˜€

    1. Glen Allsopp says:

      Well I doubt it will last for long so good to take advantage while it lasts

  17. Tech Bold says:

    No longer john. Now my blog ranks no 1 in Technorati! 😈 😎 😈

  18. Tech Bold says:

    Hmmm It seems like everyone is number one.. That’s not good, since there is no competition. 😯

    1. dcr says:

      Maybe Technorati has decided to help build up everyone’s self-esteem by making everyone number 1! No more hurt feelings from those of us previously ranked at numbers comparable to the U.S. national debt. Of course, no more motivation to do better, since we’re all equals now, right? πŸ˜†

  19. Shaun Carter says:

    Thanks for the heads up John! I got my screenshot!

  20. I totally believed you were #1! I was thinking… “How much does technorati suck to leave the #1 blog out of it’s official rankings??” hahaha . either way.. I’m sure you’ll make #1 soon enough!

  21. i missed it, i would have love to get a screen shot of my blog like that

    1. dcr says:

      You still have a chance. Mine is still showing as number 1, so I’m sure it’s probably still doing the same for everyone else (unless a miracle occurred and I really am #1).

    2. dcr says:

      Well, it’s fixed now, so you’re out of luck if you missed the second window. Unless something else goes wrong at Technorati…

  22. NSpeaks says:

    Oops I missed the screenie too. πŸ˜₯

    1. NSpeaks says:

      Bug is open again. Just took the screenshot. So hurry up.

  23. Glen Allsopp says:

    Is it just me or is technorati not reporting links for blogs?

    None showing in wordpress and none directly on the site…not even for this blog

    1. dcr says:

      That’s probably something to do with the same glitch that’s making everyone #1.

      My Authority ranking actually increased during this time, so, even though it’s not showing links, Technorati must still be recording them.

      At least I hope so! I mean, I hope I keep my higher authority when Technorati recovers.

  24. John, I feel that you should rank #1 already… πŸ˜€

  25. Indeed, it is a ugly glitch. I rank #1 too 😯 with my really really new blog, but it shows 0 reactions uh huh.

  26. Jeff says:

    Congrats John!!! But I bet one day you will officially be number 1 with no glitch soon.

    Also John do you know why your parody site John Cow dot Com redirects here? Where you the one behind it or a friend or something and was just an experiment?

  27. ForumeR says:

    I dunno what happened to technorati, but they made me laugh becoz of that huhu

  28. Ginene says:

    I saved my screen shot just so I can say I ranked #1. I am sure they will catch it by tomorrow at the least.

  29. Blog Review says:

    wow, that’s some glitch

  30. Glen Allsopp says:

    Well I can confirm the links are bad aswell

  31. MixMazz says:

    John, when were you in the UFC? And for how long?

    1. John Chow says:

      I was never in the UFC. The part of the about me is a joke.

      1. Mixmazz says:

        aww that sux but alright though…when are the car/food posts comming?

  32. punkthepump says:

    cool πŸ™‚ I am happy for you xP

  33. Graham says:



    PS. I heard John Cow was # 45 on Technorati. Coincidence?

  34. dcr says:

    I wonder who else is not in Technorati’s Top 100 that should be? JC is ranked 47, but doesn’t appear there. Whoever is ranked 48 is also missing from the list. The blog at 49 is ranked 46 (there are three blogs tied at 16, which affects the numbering) and the blog at 50 is ranked 49. Curiouser and curiouser.

  35. Dang! I must have caught it to late. I wasn’t number one when I checked. I was back up to 370,000 or something. :mrgreen:

  36. Douglas Karr says:

    I’m number 1 as well!

  37. Eric says:

    Darn Technorati has been broken for years now – they just can’t seem to get the infrastructure in place to be anything other than a novelty.

  38. BMW European Delivery says:

    Yup, I woke up this morning and I saw an email from a friend telling me that I’m number 1 in Technorati, I really thought it was Fouls Day, but I got up, opened my laptop, browse to Technorati, and here I was, #1. After 30 sec of thinking, I knew it wasn’t possible, I mean, in the end my site only gets about 5k hits a day so I can’t be that high. So yeah, it was nice to see a 1 in there rather than a 300,000 whatever number :mrgreen:

  39. Well done, I think you will be soon the real #1

  40. lilyruth says:

    πŸ™„ RIght now mines at says authority 32 and the other one says authority 6 is those good numbers? Im sorry I missed seeing that # 1 if I did get it I would hae wanted to take a screenshot to post on my blogs.(smile) just to show off.. Well congratulations anyway soon you will be # 1 Cause I see your name everywhere on different blogs and communities. You are well known you see. This is my first time here and Im glad I came. bye now

  41. moneygod says:

    you know what, this morning I checked my Technorati’s ranking and I was ranked #1 too. But now, Technorati has fixed it and my ranking dropped to the normal level.

    btw, hope you’ll be put on top 100 list very soon!!! πŸ™‚

  42. Michael says:

    With a quick photo edit we can all be #1 in the top 100 list, Alexa or whatever. If a person can’t verify the information themself, a screen shot isn’t worth anything.

    BeachBum Michael

  43. Congrats man, I’m still trying break the top 100000.

  44. Rob says:

    well done John.
    I’m still in the top 5,000,000 πŸ™‚

  46. Fable says:

    I was going to say congrats on reaching number 1 until I began reading the second paragraph! πŸ˜‰


  47. Thomas says:

    Have you ever asked for explanations about why you are not ranked on the top 100??

  48. Ades says:

    It seems that you posted this 1 hour after I blogged it on my blog. Any chance you saw it there first and didn’t credit me?

  49. Alan Parekh says:

    Congrats, even if you were only #1 because of the glitch… πŸ™‚

  50. I missed my number 1 moment. Gonna have to do it the hard way, or wait for the next glitch… πŸ™‚

  51. Wahlau.NET says:

    damn..i missed to be number 1

  52. If someone deserves it, it’s you..

  53. the trasher says:

    how long do you thinkl you will keep in the top 1?

    best regards and congrats


  54. Lewis Empire says:

    I love it when stuff like this happens. If nothing else it gives you a great screen shot to show your grandchildren someday!

  55. Mohamed says:

    Now your rank is 50 . big drop .

  56. Click Input says:

    Missed my opportunity to grab a screenshot – bugger!
