Technorati Favourites Exchange : You know you want to!

18 07 2019

Why the emphasis on Technorati? Simply because Technorati is a blog search engine, content aggregator, social website and ranking system which attracts a large number of bloggers, who are exactly the type of audience or readers I want for my blog.

The Technorati Top 100 most favorited is a simply list of blogs according to the number of people who have favorited them in their Technorati account.

Getting into the most favorited list does not depend on any other variable factors (such as link count over a period of time) except the number of favorites each blog receives. As of now, breaking into the top 100 will only require your blog to be favorited by more than 252 members. Fairly easy, in my opinion.

What are the benefits of being favorited?

Here are some reasons why getting into the Technorati 100 will be beneficial:

  • Provides social proof. Getting in the Top 100 provides social proof of your blog’s popularity. This will increase the attractiveness of your site in the eyes of advertisers and blog readers if mentioned or displayed prominently.
  • Expands your blog readership. You are more likely to receive visitors from Technorati if you are listed in the Top 100 most favorited list. Visitors are bloggers,which means that they are potential feed subscribers if you have quality content.

What’s the main goal behind this Technorati Favorites Exchange?

The goal of this experiment is simple, to break into the Technorati Top 100 and determine the exposure and traffic benefits of being included in the Top 100 list.

Won’t this experiment skew the Technorati Favorites Ranking System?

Reciprocal favoriting is not against Technorati’s TOS and I’m sure that most of the people who participate will have some sympathy towards this blog because you wouldn’t be reading this if you aren’t interested in either a) Technorati favorites or b) this blog.

How do I Participate in this?
