Top Commentators See Huge Technorati Boost

If you’re a top commentator on this blog, you may have experienced a huge boost in your Technorati ranking today. This boost came about because Technorati is ranking my posts as individual blogs.

Normally when another blog links to you, it shows up on Technorati as one blog link. However, because Technorati thinks over 500 of my blog posts are actually blogs, all the Top Commentators suddenly picked up hundreds of blog links overnight.

The boost to some of the Top Commentators has been massive. Here are their current ranking at the time of this post.

Technorati still has me frozen with 14,152 links from 2,405 blogs. However, news links to and from my blog are still being counted so I can still affect the rankings of blogs I link to. While Technorati has locked me at 14,152 links, the actual number is 59,228 links from who knows how many blogs. Hopefully, Technorati will unfreeze me soon so I can join the Top 100.

In the mean time, you can consider your huge Technorati increase as another perk for being a Top Commentator. I hope that this will help you make more money online.

I had to get that “make money online” in this post somehow! 😈

    Not only top commentator. People in your review batch also got huge technorati boost too!

    1. Alex says:

      Well, I didn’t get a huge boost πŸ™

      1. Leftblank says:

        Better luck next time (or in a while, the Technorati spiders tend to recrawl older posts if you wait long enough)

        1. I think Technorati already stopped counting John’s posts as individual blogs. I didn’t get any “huge” boost.

          1. Jeff says:

            Wish I could have been on the front page at that time πŸ™‚ I see that problem has been fixed now

      2. I didn’t get a huge boost from the review batch, but as John pointed out I’m now at 2,432 today, down from 90,000 on Friday. That’s a massive leap! 😯

        1. HMTKSteve says:

          That is a huge leap! I can only make small steps now.

          1. Zach says:

            just keep posting, it’ll never hurt

          2. Marc says:

            That’s ok Steve, nothing wrong with being so close to the top πŸ˜‰

          3. Technorati has been counting John’s pages as separate blogs for a while now!

          4. Zach says:

            I’m very interested in how this works, because i know a few other sites that have with ‘problem’

          5. Jez says:

            Its technorati that have the ‘problem’, this could ruin things for them….

          6. Mark Robinson’s “Under 500 in an hour” is so tempting…. :mrgreen:

    2. simon says:

      I didn’t get huge boot but got better technorati rank.

      1. Aris says:

        This morning Saman was talking about crossing the 7K line. Wouw, now is lower than 2K? You’re really evil John. πŸ™‚ Congrats for Saman. I could not post the comments this morning. I have been pushed down by others. Now, I need to climb it again.

        1. Matthew says:

          definitely a great boost then

        2. HMTKSteve says:

          I’m in the lead! I’m in the lead!

          I just can’t quit you John!

          1. I sense some competition coming!

          2. Zach says:

            i wonder how many other sites are doing this

          3. Marc says:

            You sense come coming?????

            It’s already significantly more competitive than it was, just in February.

        3. It seems like my rank is increasing by 6k every day!

          1. Jez says:

            So youll be in negative figures soon then πŸ™‚

        4. Jez says:

          The thing is it just looks too bogus when you get a ridiculous figure like that, Ive just started commenting from another URL as I dont want a stupid ranking on one blog, and nothing on the other!

        5. Jez says:

          Its tough at the top, I dont know how far Lyndon and Samon would go with this, i.e. if you knocked them off the top how far they would go to get back up again!!

          Its already pretty crazy!

      2. simon says:

        Now I see the boost. My blog/s rank is
        # Rank: 2,356 (1,899 links from 826 blogs)

        So crazy!! 😈

        1. That’s definitely crazy! A big change overnight, that’s all I can say 😯

          1. It does give a real sense of giddiness – even though I know it’s bogus.

          2. Yeah, I was wondering if there’s any actual benefit in SE’s regarding having a better Techno ranking. Like do they also see that you have more links coming to you? ❓

          3. Marc says:

            Well the Technorati rank means nothing to the SEs. The SEs also treat a page as a page. The boost here comes from Technorati not understanding what to do with John’s pages.

            While it won’t help with SEs, it can help with certain advertising programs over the short term.

          4. Good to know. Thanks.

          5. It may not help SE’s but traffic has definitely increased!

        2. carl says:

          wow! I hope I can be in the top commentators so i can get that boost!! 😈

          1. Jez says:

            Its good fun, but will be short lived I think!!

        3. Jez says:

          “Yeah, I was wondering if there’s any actual benefit in SE’s regarding having a better Techno ranking. Like do they also see that you have more links coming to you?”

          reveiwMe use Technorati rank as a metric, as John mentioned, so theres one benefit, I am sure there are others…

          1. Jez says:

            Sorry, you were on about SE’s, I am not sure, Google picks up Technorati links, but I think only the link that shows the blog details, not all of the links beneath that, so No, I dont think there is any SEO benefit.

    3. Aris says:

      Can’t wait till batch 35 coming out. 😈

      1. Jez says:

        Yeah its hard to keep up… I wont persist with this for long, I am looking short term benefit at the mo.

        For longer term benefit your time is better spent adding posts to your blog and leaving “link bait” in the comments.

        Where I get hits from comments left in posts that are months old, from a time when I only bothered commenting if I had something useful to say 😈

        Leaving well tought out constructive comments gets you a steady trickle of hits from users trawling the archives…

    4. I agree. I guess anyone who had a backlink to his site got a boost as well.

      1. For sure – I think the same Technorati glitch causes a backlink from John to create like 20 links. It’s really screwed up. It’s great.

        1. Definitely so, for many of us.

          1. It really has, I hope the people I linked to got a benefit of this as well!

          2. Jez says:

            I dont see how, your blog is sitll only counted as one, it is johns blog that counts as 500!

            If you pulled the same stunt as john you would give the same benefit, but then your rank would be frozen too…

        2. It created way more than 20 backlinks for me. I ended up with hundreds (probably more than 500) of new links from being there.

          But now what happens when I lose that spot? Does my ranking go back to a high number instead? ❓

          1. I guess a reshuffle will be in place then. It is all on Technorati’s side to handle this.

          2. HMTKSteve says:

            Technorati works on a 3 month cycle.

          3. Marc says:

            It is completely in Technorati’s court to fix. The question is, is this a broader problem that they want to resolve, or is John just so evil that he’s broken them and they don’t really care since it has a minimal impact on their overall system.

          4. I’m not looking forward to the day where it is fixed!

          5. Jez says:

            No me neither, but if it isnt the whole technorati ranking system will fail, which would be a shame for those that have a genuine rank…

        3. Jez says:

          I think its one more site linking to you per comment ❗

      2. Jez says:

        Thats a good point, the people with the paid adlinks at the top would also get this benefit, if they were blogs as opposed to websites. I wouldnt be surprised if Mitch bought one of these after reading this post.

    5. I wonder if this will result in a lot of crap comments from people just trying to boost their Technorati rank? Could mess up the warm community life that’s been cultivated here.

      1. Marc says:

        There were already 100 reasons to post lots of “thin” comments. This just means there are 101 reasons. So far it hasn’t destroyed the community, just made it a lot noisier.

      2. I’m sure it will… πŸ™

        1. Gary Lee says:

          i definitely think it will. I won’t be surprised to see people pay people to start posting on this site. . . . can o’worms people . . can o’worms

        2. Jez says:

          “I’m sure it will… ”

          Textbook answer Samon 😈

      3. Jez says:

        No, people comment anyway, the top commentors list has always attracted more commenting…

    6. Jane May says:

      That’s great to hear! Another perk for being affiliated with John Chow!

      1. Jez says:

        Yeah, Ill be interested to see what the review me value gets set at.

        The other benefit commenting here is that you get visits from Johns readers, a number of whom run the Alexa toolbar / FF Plug ins.

        This means that commenting here gets a boost on two of the reveiwMe metrics, which could increase your “fee”.

        Though you can manually set your review me fee, having a better Alexa and Techno rank increase its ‘genuine’ worth.

        All good, but commenting is time consuming, and as such detrimental to the content on your own blog…

    7. Jez says:

      Not a huge boost, only one more site linking, commenting is what gives the boost…

    8. AskaX says:

      yea you right johnny, I got huge leap from 828,733 to 54,093 overnight, just list on his review batch πŸ˜€

    9. This is starting to look like a “Make Money Online with John Chow Dot Com FORUM” πŸ˜›

      ….and the top commentators are the moderators :mrgreen:

    10. I think the dream is over – Technorati has fixed their glitch from what I can tell:

  2. Jon says:

    Wow! I wonder if the technorati people will notice. What do you think will happen?

    1. Johnny_Cash says:

      That’s why I never talk about it when I found this out, but now everyone know!

      1. Leftblank says:

        Well if I’m right John even reported it to them, so if they don’t know about it yet it’s pretty much their own fault I’d say…

      2. Jez says:

        John has mentioned it before, as have other commentors, its no secret, the question is how long this will last for….

        1. Hope it will be long enough for me to get to the top 10 :mrgreen:

    2. What are they going to do now, you say? It seems like they have to physically scan every single blogs to ensure that there is only one unique link from each one, but that’s pretty much impossible beacause of linkbacks in posts as well! There are just too many blogs to check!

      1. Gary Lee says:

        can’t they just filter out all but one of john’s blogs?

      2. Jez says:

        It must be an issue for them or they would have resolved it by now, the problem for technorati is if other sites pull the same stunt, it will ruin their stats which would be a shame, not that thats stopping me commenting!

      3. Jez says:

        Yeah its going to be tricky for them, it will slow them down a lot!!

        1. Good! I have more time….

    3. It’s a bit of a glitch for sure – mind you I’ve often wondered about the accuracy of Technorati from the beginning.

      1. Jez says:

        Personally I dont think Technorati rank is really worth much, its one of a number of sites that track blogs.

        I only ever use it to check stats for my own and friends blogs, I never use it to find information.

        Information searches are very poor on technorati IMO.

    4. Jane May says:

      Same here. I try not to mention why because the more popular this becomes, the more likely they are to do something about it. 😈 I know, I know…evil πŸ˜†

      Net Business Blog criticizes this and gives two solutions for Technorati.

      1. Jez says:

        Its a bit late now though, its old news now, john posted on it ages ago, and anyone who took the time to look up commentors sites in technorati would have seen it imediately

    5. Jez says:

      They have noticed and frozen Johns rank, the thing is they have not resolved the problem itself

  3. Babak says:

    Who the what now?

    John, could you explain why technorati thinks you’re 500 blogs instead of one? and why today, what was special about today? is it a weekly thing?

    And finally, will technorati even be recognizable after you’re done with it? or will the coroner just point to the puddle in the corner?

    1. Johnny_Cash says:

      I think it is caused by John Chow’s evil experiment.

      He said he loaded all URLs linking to his site to Technorati pinging tools. He probably loaded a lot of his posts as seperate blog too.

      Technorati’s spider is slow. If your blog is linked to John Chow dot com, you will probably see your technorati’s rank steadily increased in the next few days as more John Chow’s older post got indexed.

      1. Did he do it once more? 😈 Whatever it is, it is benefitting the community. The community gains!

        1. Leftblank says:

          ‘The community’ or ‘the top commentators’; quite a difference ‘aye πŸ˜‰

          1. No, if you have read, those that are not in the list are gaining as well.

        2. Jez says:

          “Did he do it once more? Whatever it is, it is benefitting the community. The community gains!”

          Cheats like this dont benefit the community at all, they corrupt the rankings and put blogs that deserve the rank further down the list….

      2. HMTKSteve says:

        I think it is because his blog posts look like directories rather than html pages. Thus, every page looks like a new blog! :mrgreen:

        1. I don’t know how Technorati works, but their search-ranking seems to be confused!

      3. Jane May says:

        exactly. I’ve had a couple boosts like this. Probably 3 or 4 different times John’s “experiment” has boosted our ranking.

        1. It sure has, his experiment has really effected all of us greatly! I’m getting links from pages John wrote last year!

      4. Jez says:

        No its been like this for ages, my blog started shooting up as soon as I got on the top commentors list…

        The fact is this is no more than a bit of fun, its not like your getting to no. 1 on google….

  4. Gary Lee says:

    I really don’t know what you did, but keep on doing it! Do you know how long this is going to last though? I really can’t believe I’m going to be ranked 2065 forever!

    1. Although I don’t know how long it will last, I hope that it can last forever. *winks

      1. Jane May says:

        I just hope it lets us keep our current ranking and not take away anything

        That would just be too evil

        1. I’m sure they’ll drop back down – at least we’re all getting more traffic for now!

    2. Matthew says:

      forever? i thought the links lasted 3 months?

      1. After 3 months, it will be back to square one for us. But it’s worthwhile in the meantime to ‘indulge’ in temporary happiness..

        1. HMTKSteve says:

          By “us” you mean you. Some of “us” have legitimate links in there.

          1. Jane May says:

            Lol…you tell him Steve. I know we’ve gotten some good ones from John, but I didn’t realize that 3 months we go back to what we “should be”

    3. Jez says:

      I know its good fun, but has to come to an end at some point, I dont see real benefit to the top commentors though… I mean, have you recieved a lot more traffic from technorati?? I havent noticed any difference.

  5. danielle says:

    seriously…i need to take notes from saman on how to be the top comment whore. πŸ˜‰ i still think he’s a robot

    1. Aris says:

      He described it somewhere in his blog. Check it out, please. No, he is better than robot. He can think independently. πŸ˜†

      1. Set aside lots of spare time, read JC’s blog and pump in your ideas and comments, that’s what Saman does. πŸ˜€

        1. It doesn’t take very long. Especially if you make lots of comments per post.

          1. Jane May says:

            True. It’s taking me about an hour to make a move to the top.

          2. I’ll tell you how I do it:

          3. Jez says:

            The easiest way to get lots of comments in is to look at the older posts already heavily commented, ther are more opportunities to reply… though page loads are slower…

    2. Marc says:

      Instead of taking notes from Saman, spend that time writing on your own blog and grown that way πŸ˜‰

      1. Jez says:

        Yup, the more time you spend commenting in here the less content of your own you publish and the less google hits you will get in the future.

        Its a conflict, I reckon I could have put out another 10 posts on my blog over the last 2 weeks if I had not spent so much time in here, however, I have a short term objective in doing this… after which I think I will return to normality!!

  6. Someday I’ll be a top commentator….just got to keep on commenting….

    1. Aris says:

      Simon says, no, no, John says, someday never comes. 😈

    2. I guess all of us just have to Try harder, although I dare say it’s pretty ‘impossible’. πŸ˜€

      1. Leftblank says:

        Yup, we’re making sure of that (I dropped out as soon as the week limit started, I can’t keep spamming all day long ;))

        1. HMTKSteve says:

          Sure you can! Just reply to all of Sam’s comments!

          1. πŸ˜† Yeah, just try and keep up with me!

    3. Marc says:

      Yes, “someday” is a word that shouldn’t be used on John’s blog. If you don’t know why, check out

  7. Aris says:


    Did you check your ranking in ‘make money online’ on Google? The last time I checked, the previous post was in #14 so page 2 while your old post as mentioned in my blog last night was in 34 or 36. You’re moving very fast in climbing the google ladder John.

  8. I’ve noticed the links seem to come in waves from your site John, although I didn’t have as large an increase this time around. But not too long ago I was up around 100,000 and am now down to about 22,000 and have been dropping nicely.

    1. Aris says:

      Congratulations. I was in the 7 digits range last week, but I just checked and as of now it has climbed to 58014. I believe that was the results when the evil and his diciple-cum-teacher worked together. πŸ™‚ Both John and Saman have pulled me up. I’m sure John has a big arm and he has more force, but Saman did a good job too. πŸ˜†

      1. I guess everyone in JC’s community is being pulled up. Everyone is having a hand in cracking that desired Technorati’s level.

      2. I’m glad I could help buddy!

  9. Ed Lau says:

    It’s everyone on your front page. I jumped too…

  10. Albert says:

    That’s how evil works 😈

  11. Albert says:

    Guys, i just checked on Google with keywords “make money online” and John Chow Dot Com was at #7. Congrats John, your evil works show the result πŸ˜€

    1. Aris says:

      Man, it was on page 2 few hours ago. At that time, only 6 people clicked on that link, three of them was me. I mean, I clicked on that Google link to go there. Let me see it now. Nuh, I don’t know how did you get that number. In this link,,GGLG:2005-20,GGLG:en&q=make+money+online
      John is still in page 2 to #13. Just up one number from what I recorded 2, 3 hours ago. Google has not updated it yet, and it still shows 6 visits at 1:35pm. OK, I just click the link, went to John’s page which John should be able to see it from MBL (but wouw, with thousands viewer) and it just changed to 7 at 9:39ps. I’m sure that means Pacific Time zone.

  12. Will it be a permanent boost or a fluke?

    1. Aris says:

      Got the same question too.

      1. I would imagine that Technorati will fix their system soon, and our ranks will be more accurate soon…

    2. It may be a temporary one I guess. Do technorati count expired backlinks?

      1. Leftblank says:

        I think they do, and elsewise they’ll do so most likely when the ‘big buggyness’ is fixed.

        1. HMTKSteve says:

          Technorati uses a three month rolling cycle.

          1. Marc says:

            which means that all of the links you acquire on a given day expire three months later.

          2. Really? So if you get zero links this cycle, your rank will drop?

    3. carl says:

      maybe just a temporary because if you don’t comment you wont be in the top

    4. Jez says:

      Fluke once technorati find a fix.

      If they dont fix it more and more sites will do it and technorati will go down the gurgler!!

    1. Aris says:

      Thanks, Albert. I think the problem is with have too many people ‘make money online’ that John has to compete with here.

      1. IF he has a community to back him up, I believe the number one spot is his to claim in no time. Do people just realize how many backlinks he has as well??

      2. carl says:

        buty let’s see, john can control many people because he holds contest a lot of time

      3. Jez says:

        A few hundred SOE’d backlinks will get him there, how many of his competitors can generate that many links for a $250 prize??

    2. John Chow says:

      That is I am on page 2 for and I’m at the #1 spot for

      1. Aris says:

        Did you see what I just found? You’re #4 in Technorati now.

        1. Aris says:

          No, that’s wrong. Sorry!

          1. Number 4?? I just deduced from the top 100 list. JC has a good chance in being there should he be ‘free’ from Technorati’s clutches.

      2. Marc says:

        I’ve got you at #6 on out here on the East Coast.

      3. Jez says:

        Quick work, I never understood why you didnt ask for the original posts to target keywords. I know you wanted Technorati ranking, but all the same, you would have to admit you missed a trick there, for the first time since Ive been reading this blog.

    1. Leftblank says:

      Still a ‘nofollow’ πŸ˜‰

    2. Jon Lee says:

      Only place the links work at are if he links to your site in a post, or if you make it to the Top Commentators list. Good luck with that!

  13. Aris says:

    John, you were wrong about Saman. He got boost because he defeated Godzilla. 😈

    1. Godzilla wouldn’t even come close enough for Saman to grapple with him. So.. how could it be? πŸ™„

      1. Godzilla was afraid! Also, the helicopter with the photographer was destroyed before I defeated Godzilla!

        1. Jez says:

          Which one was godzilla BTW :mrgreen:

  14. max says:

    Hey thanks John, my blog went up to 1695 from 20,000 somethin’ after your recent review!

    1. Wow that’s some increment.. And you have tons of linkback as well!

  15. Tyler says:

    I miss being one of the top commentators πŸ™ I took a 3-4week break and I can’t catch up anymore!

    1. Matthew says:

      you will, another 49 comments to go lol

      1. Leftblank says:

        Not when I’ll get there first ;). But like you said, it’s pretty much possible, but not easy though, not easy at all.

  16. Dinner says:

    Damn, that’s nice! I’ve got a long way to go before getting to the top though πŸ˜› .

    1. Jez says:

      If you reach the top you dont stay there long, Lyndon seems to have a good run.

      Janes back in the game now and stayed there briefly, but not for long…

      As long as you get enough posts so you dont get knocked off the benefits are much the same, bottom of the list is not much different from top, technorati boost will be the same…

  17. Aris says:

    Funny. I just saw this on Technorati page:

    John Chow dot Com The Miscellaneous Ramblings of a Dot Com Mogul
    Search this blog Rank: 1,839,567 (2 links from 2 blogs)
    Updated: 13 hours ago

    Please go and check it yourself.

    1. some of his pages had linkbacks and seem to count as individual blogs.

      1. Yeah, I’m getting linkbacks from articles John wrote last year!

  18. Chee Kui says:

    whoa.. should have commented more on this blog. lol.
    I am anticipating the 36th batch review, hehe. Watch out people. :p

  19. Matthew says:

    of course this happens within hours of me not being a top commenter, however i got a big boost from you anyhow

    1. Leftblank says:

      Same here, I went from 500k to just under the 19k, but it seems the real big boosts are happening right now πŸ™

  20. Aris says:

    This is what I found when I search for this page on Technorati:

    No posts link to that URL yet. Please try again later.

    Now I know, why each page has different Technorati numbers.

    When I go for top page,, I got this number:

    59,244 links to this URL

    Now, let’s see what is the rank of this page with highest authority:

    Search this blog Rank: 4 (451,999 links from 27,086 blogs)
    Updated: 10 hours ago


    1. Aris says:

      OK, it’s time to go to bed. I was so excited the search results of shows me number 4 at the top. It turned out that it was the number of endgadget. Sorry John. Got to go to bed now.

  21. Aris says:

    You’re crazy John. 😈 Did you know you’re number 4 in Technorati even though you think they still freezed you!

    Don’t know who is number 1. Could it be his good twin? πŸ˜†

    1. Matthew says:

      im very interested to know whos #1

    2. He couldn’t be. Those kids in the top ten has several hundred thousand linkbacks. Now thats crazy..

  22. girlrobot says:

    wow, i dunno how the top commentators do it. i’d have to spend more time commenting on your blog than working on my own blog! heheh

    1. vijay says:

      yes, seems a good idea to me…

    2. Marc says:

      It all depends on how much time you have available. I’d be lying if I dais it wasn’t having an impact on my writing though.

    3. Jez says:

      thats the problem, would not say more time, but, I would say as long as it takes to write a post each day, so its not all good….

  23. Aris says:

    To make sure I got the ranking right, I went to check Technorati Most Linked as well as More Favorited blogs, and yes, they have not let John in those list yet. Now, I can go to bed without thinking about this number games while dreaming. 😈

    1. I guess it will be soon, just that something is hindering the other side of Technorati.

  24. I have had steady improovement from technocrati in the last 3 weeks going from 150 000+ to just over 25 000. I am far from being a top commentator in here so I guess this is not the reason.

    BUT I am sure that some of your tips that I gradually try to successfully incorporate in my blog are the main reasons for my performances.

    Once again I will never thank you enough John. Keep it simple for us the little blogs and the newbies.

  25. Technorati has my site frozen as well. It claims I haven’t updated in over a year. πŸ˜†

    1. lol.. How is that possible?

    2. Matthew says:

      did you try pinging them? lol

  26. I, too, have been frozen by Technorati since December. An acquaintance put me in touch with their CTO, who made a bunch of suggestions which made no difference at all to my Technorati ranking (though they may have helped other things).

    I thought Technorati was simply having trouble coping with my weird hybrid site/blog, but if it’s happening to you guys as well, perhaps I shouldn’t blame myself.

    How common is this freeze problem? How reliable can Technorati rankings possibly be if some (many?) blogs are not perceived as updated for months? It’s disturbing that, as with Alexa, this very flawed ranking is to put market value on blogs and the relatively influence of their writers.

    1. I agree that the ranking system implemented by them, or for any system for that matter may be flawed, it is just one of the more commonly recognized way to compare between blogs. Not everyone takes this seriously though.

  27. Moses says:

    That’s great news..guess i better start commenting more here πŸ˜›

  28. Philip Yong says:

    this is just amazing. Commenting on someone’s blog could boost tracfics and so.

    1. carl says:

      yea that’s why commenting on blogs is also a good source of traffic!

      1. Jez says:

        Not as good as google…

    2. Jon Lee says:

      Only if they click your link, since to the crawlers, your name/link in comments are nofollow!

      1. They are nofollow in comments but not on the Top Commentator’s list

      2. Jez says:

        Can you imagine what would happen if John took the no follow tag off, every linkback in every comment getting a tech boost ❗

  29. vijay says:

    thats a great news… will make me post some comments too..

  30. I just got two more linkbacks from the ReviewMyBlog that I did 2 weeks ago. Go Technorati! Since reading I have gone from like 700,000 to just above 91,000 in about 1 month. THanks

    1. carl says:

      wow! nice james! you just spiked off technorati’s rankings!

    2. Jon Lee says:

      Too bad they don’t have a listing of the “top movers and shakers” like Alexa, otherwise you’d b near the top of that I’m sure!

      1. That would be cool, they do show your stats though…

    3. Jez says:

      I think I was in batch 6 with my first blog, I still get a couple of hits each week, and hits from comments now in the archives…

    4. I’m at 27,335th now (20 Mar 2007 9:20 pm GMT +8)
      Hope you don’t mind if I’ll a whore tonight. :mrgreen:

  31. IndoDX says:

    This amazing, but I have little question, why this post, detected as individual BLOG?

    1. That is the problem – all of John’s posts are viewed as individual blogs.

  32. FaYZ says:

    Good John, should start making a point commenting each of your post from now on..samanathon is a real winner..

  33. HMTKSteve says:

    Top 100? You will be number 1! Engadget only has about 25K links.

    1. carl says:

      but that’s blog links, john has 50k links which is different from blog link

    2. yea.. Engadget has 400k backlines in total. It is the blog links that makes the difference in the ranking.

  34. Maybe I should do a review of Johns blog anyway πŸ™‚

  35. xzblogs says:


    is a trick or is a Technorati bug?

  36. baron says:

    I guess I should comment more often! 😈

    1. carl says:

      me too! 😈 hahahaha 😈

      1. Carl says:

        Yeah!!! πŸ™‚

        1. Just don’t spam guys!

  37. And all I wanted was a free pen….

  38. Gdog says:

    That’s it, I’m hiring one of my Korea kids to post comments all day on this blog. The top commenter spot will beeee minnneee!!!

    1. Zach says:

      hahahhaa, that’s actually a good idea

  39. Ed says:

    If you ever had that dream where you walk along the street and find money under leaves in the gutter, and then wake up penniless, you will get an idea of how I feel about Technorati rankings.

    If Technorati can step up to the plate and make some sense of the nonsense, then the rank manipulation going on has not been in vain. If not, as someone commented earlier, Technorati ranking is yet another decent idea turned into a puddle in the corner..

  40. John your evilness never ceases to amaze me πŸ˜‰

  41. stubsy says:

    Could you tell us how you got technorati to count each post as a seperate blog?

    1. I don’t think John will know. The only fellas who can explain this thing would be Technorati themselves, since they are the ones that are sorting these things out.

  42. Evidently, I don’t comment enough. 😳

  43. Erik says:

    I got 300 more backlinks when I briefly hit the Tom Commentators list :).

    1. Gary Lee says:

      seriously . . .i don’t know how long the backlinks thing is going to last . . . I agree with Mark Robinson that the comments are now going to get really crazy with the new incentive.

      1. David says:

        yeah, no kidding…the comments are getting crazy!!!

      2. Jez says:

        Not a new incentive, has been like this for ages…

  44. I see lyndonmaxewell just took the lead away from Saman (he must be away or something).

    1. Jez says:

      And I just took it from Lyndon, in 10 mins it will be someone else, madness!!!

  45. Now people – don’t abuse the comments list just to get ahead in Technorati.

  46. That would be wrong.

  47. John will probably ban me now – but just making a point.

  48. Mike Panic says:

    I guess I need to start posting more.

    1. It’s a vicious cycle! Now I’m scared to fall off! πŸ‘Ώ

      1. Jez says:

        That is a point, once you get used to the blessings it would be hard to give them up πŸ™‚

  49. Zach says:

    this is interesting how this has happened. But this hasen’t just happened to john’s blog, it’s happend to many

  50. Zach says:

    i’m going to do some research on this and find out whats behind this

  51. Zach says:

    does this have an effect on people who are necessarily on the top commentators list?

  52. David says:

    Just my luck…this post comes a day after I fall off the top ten πŸ‘Ώ

    1. Marc says:

      Yeah, I woke up this morning off the list and thought I’d missed out, but I just slipped in πŸ˜‰

      1. Matthew says:

        same thing here

  53. Marc says:

    I already go my massive boost the last time you did this. So I got a boost this time around, but not quite as big I think.

  54. Xof says:

    That’s quite insane! How come Technocrati can actually think that blog posts are actually blogs??!!

  55. This is pretty impressive. I’m going to have to comment here more often. πŸ˜›

  56. Wauks says:

    I’ve been reading this blog for sometime now but mostly as a lurker. This is my first comment and you can expect more comments in the coming days XD

  57. Zach says:

    I’m starting to notice a trend with these top commentators blogs.

    They now all have a technorati blog rank on their sidebar

    1. Jez says:

      Not mine, just an “Add to favorites” πŸ™‚

  58. Zach says:

    Whenever your site has something like this happen to you, it’s got to be soo good. Because all of a sudan there’s tons of comments on your blog.

    1. Jez says:

      Most of my comments came from sites I visited or commented on myself, I dont think ive had a single comment out of the blue yet…

      The myBlog widget is good, you can track back your visitors, comment on their site, or vice versa if they see you visit them.

  59. Gdog says:

    Just remember, skewing with these technorati rankings is like lying about your score in golf–you’re just cheating yourself in the long run.

    1. Jez says:

      Im not cheating anything, I wanted to see what the top commentors links were worth in terms of traffic, the technorati boost is irrelivant to be, I dont think its got me any more visits,

  60. Jeff Kee says:

    Darn I was on teh top commentators list last month but I missed out on this one.. πŸ™

    1. Jez says:

      Its on a rolling week, you dont have to wait till the end of the month…

  61. Aris says:

    Just notice that my Technorati Ranking has jumped up to 36,166. This must be a combination of the back link from batch #35, top commentators and my going out to visit more blogs from this community. I know, at the end, the content is the most important thing. You will have a repeated visitors if your content is good.

  62. macgoo says:

    Wow thats awesome! Perhaps I should actually post some comments here hey!

  63. Jez says:

    Weeellll, thats me back to No. 1 for an hour or two!!!

  64. Aly says:

    That’s nutty! This stuff is really informative.

  65. Jeremy says:

    Posting for rank increase. No other purpose.
