Since some other members of the ScienceBlogs collective are doing it, link whore that I am, I couldn’t resist putting my blog into this site and seeing where it ranked.

And here’s the result:

With 516 links in the last 180 days, Technorati places in the very high authority group.

That makes you a A-List Blogger!


Fortunately (and yet one more thing to be thankful for on Thanksgiving), this is probably the only way I’ll ever be in any way associated with Paris Hilton. I was tempted to take a picture of Orac and Photoshop him into the picture above, but decided that it would be way more work than this silliness is worth. I also hate the pink logo; consequently, I’m not about to be posting it anywhere in my sidebar.

It seems rather odd that I’ve made the A-List rank with PZ (who averages roughly ten times my traffic and has a Technorati rank of around 260 compared to my rank of 4,200) and Ed (who has roughly three times my traffic).

Ah, what the hell! If you’ve got it, flaunt it, baby!

    It might increase the number of ways you are compared with Paris Hilton, but if you get good enough at this game, you might be considered smarter than both her and your poodle:

    It’s a logarithmic scale, which is why I’m an A-lister too. 🙂

    Oh, come on Phil, you are an A-lister. I’m the one who’s the pretender. 😉

    Orac, perhaps *you’re* frightened at appearing with Paris, but Eneman has no fear of going *anywhere*….

    Even EneMan fears appearing with Paris. He has his standards.
