I saw this last week and neglected to comment on it. It’s one of those A-list ego things that I hate because it reminds me that I’m not Rand Fishkin.
According to Kineda, “Are You an A-List Blogger?, I am not.
I am a “B”. But, in an A-List kind of world, almost isn’t good enough. Trying to cheer myself up, I said to my husband, “I know my stats. I’m close. But at least I’m a B.”
He replies, “It’s not an A.”
“The High Authority Group [B-List Bloggers]
(100-499 blogs linking in the last 6 months at Technorati)
The third group represents a decided shift in blog age while not blogging much more frequently than the last. In keeping with the theme of the maturation of the blogosphere, it seems evident that many of these bloggers were previously in category two and have grown in authority organically over time. In other words, sheer dedication pays off over time.”
For the A-List, it says:
The Very High Authority Group [A-List Bloggers]
(500 or more blogs linking in the last 6 months)
In the final group we see what might be considered the blogging elite. This group, which represents more than 4,000 blogs, exhibits a radical shift in post frequency as well as blog age. Bloggers of this type have been at it longer â€“ a year and a half on average â€“ and post nearly twice a day, an increase in posting volume of over 100% from the previous group. Many of the blogs in this category, in fact, are about as old as Technorati and weâ€™ve grown up together. Some of these are full-fledge professional enterprises that post many, many times per day and behave increasingly like our friends in the mainstream media. As has been widely reported, the impact of these bloggers on our cultures and democracies is increasingly dramatic.
THIS blog has been around since 2002 and never begged for love until last week.
