QUESTION: IS MEDIA ORCHARD REALLY THAT OBNOXIOUS AND SELF-SERVING? ANSWER: SADLY, YES

by    |  DALLAS SOCIAL MEDIA


We're embarrassed to be doing this -- really. But we're afraid we have no choice.

After watching Technorati bat about .300 in noticing links recently (good in baseball, bad for "the authority on what's going on in the world of weblogs"), we've decided to begin running a monthly test of Technorati's link recognition capabilities.

Here's how it will work (this is the obnoxious and self-serving part):

Once a month, we will implore everyone who reads this blog to link to a specific post. Then, after 24 hours, we will report which blogs have linked, and what percentage of these were picked up by Technorati. By doing this once a month over the next, say, six months, we hope to get a better sense of whether Technorati's capabilities are improving, deteriorating or remaining steady during the test period.

Is this scientific? Not exactly -- but then again, we're not exactly investigating the melting of the ice caps here, either.

OK, so here we go: Please link to this post.

We'll report back tomorrow on Technorati's success rate.
