I just saw a nice follow-up comment to my polite (I mean, I meant it to be polite) disagreement with Avinash about his “Top Ranked Analytics Blogs” list from Blackbeak (arrrrrrgh!) In his comment, Steve says:
“Web analytics demystified is the best blog around when it comes to web analytics, but because Eric hasn’t optimized for Technorati he doesn’t appear in their SERP.”
Awwwwww, can you feel the love? I can.
It’s true, I have not optimized for Technorati but I did recently “claim my blog” with them which somehow propelled me to the sixth position in Avinash’s list. I’m not honestly sure how I would optimize for Technorati if I was so motivated …
