Douwe Osinga's Blog: 27

Tuesday, November 21, 2006


I just claimed my blog at technorati. I did it a long time ago, but something had gone wrong back then and now I saw that they had something new that allows you to just post the claim code. Looks a little uggly of course in the rss stream, but what the hell.

Anyway, I now have a profile at It claims I have the 27th most popular blog in their index, which considering that they track 60 million different ones, sounds quite impressive I think. To be honest, they also claim that my last post was 475 days ago - I don't blog as frequent as I used to do, but still, it is better than that.

My brother pointed me to which shows you how much your blog is worth, based on link popularity and blogs that have been sold. $3,760,965.48 is the right number. I like it how they calculates values up to the cent.

Of course my link popularity is mostly based on visited countries, a little project I wrote a few years ago. People just like to show off in how many countries they've been. Of course if anybody is in the market for a well linked blog, drop me a line. I could give you a nice discount.
