I’m not completely obsessed with myself. I mean, I only check Technorati four or five times a day to see who has linked to my blogs. But you know, something’s starting to bother me. Cognitive Daily, which seems to be getting linked more and more lately, is “stuck” at 54 links from 37 sources. It’s been like that for a couple weeks now, even though I’ve seen a dozen or so new links pop up in that time.
The links show up on technorati, it’s just that they don’t seem to be “counted.” Not a big deal, I suppose, except isn’t the count supposed to be some sort of indication of how “respected” a blog is? Will CogDaily perpetually be stuck at 54, or will the count be mysteriously updated some time down the road? Do we need a virtual Fonzie to smack the Technorati juke box to get it back on kilter?
And another thing. The site claims it has three pages’ worth of links for CogDaily, but when I click on page 2, it suddenly forgets about it, displaying this odd message:
Technorati has no problem displaying Boingboing’s second page. Do I have to have 21,000 links before Technorati will deign to display page 2?
Why am I so obsessed with this? I don’t know. Perhaps now would be a good time to start a hobby.
