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 http://www.technorati.com/blogs/douweosinga.com. 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 http://www.business-opportunities.biz/projects/how-much-is-your-blog-worth/?url=douweosinga.com 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.
