The top analyst bloggers league table is coming…
When I started researching the league table for the top analyst bloggers I immediately hit a few surprises.
- There are amazingly few analyst bloggers globally
- Many analysts (who are meant to be ‘tech experts’) haven’t setup the basic infrastructure for their blog to be successful
This league table will come out very soon. Inspired (and massively copied with permission) by Todd And’s Power 150, my league table marks analyst blogs based on several criteria:
Google PageRank (0 to 10) – Google PageRank is a link analysis algorithm that interprets web links and assigns a numerical weighting (0 to 10) to each site. High-quality sites receive a higher PageRank. The ranking uses the actual PageRank as part of its algorithm.
Bloglines Subscribers (1 to 20) – Bloglines displays the amount of subscribers each blog has to its feed(s). Subscriber ranges were determined (i.e., more than 20, more than 30, etc.) and each range was assigned a number (1 to 20) that was used as part of the algorithm.
Technorati Ranking (1 to 30) – Technorati ranking relates the authority of a particular blog (via the number of sites pointing to it). The more link sources referencing your blog, the higher the Technorati ranking. Similar to the Bloglines Subscribers value, and each range was assigned a number (1 to 30) that was used as part of the algorithm.
Technobabble Points (1 to 15) – As the only subjective measure in the algorithm, 1 to 15 opinion points were assigned to each blog. I value frequent, relevant, creative and high-quality content with a good number of comments.
The final table will no doubt cause some argument. If you want to suggest a blog or report an error please let me know.
