BlogPulse.com Launches Blog Profiles Beta
Posted on July 21, 2005BlogPulse.com has announced the launch of some very interesting new features including a tool called BlogPulse Profiles that allows people to obtain data about individual blogs including popularity, posting frequency and incoming links.
The blogs are ranked by the number of citations over the last 30 days. This is very different than the Technorati rankings which ranks blogs by the total number of blogs that link to them. Blogs will need to have continuous incoming links from blogs to stay in the top 10,000 on BlogPulse.com. It is interesting to note that Boing Boing is ranked #3 on BlogPulse.com with Engadget.com currently ranked in the #1 spot. On Technorati, Boing Boing holds the #1 position firmly with a very large lead -- it has nearly 5,000 more incoming links than Instapundit.com, the #2 blog. BlogPulse.com's popularity measurements will clearly push out blogs that don't continue to get citations on a regular basis and boost the rankings of blogs that get frequent citations.
Here are some of the other features provided by the new BlogPulse.com tool.
BlogPulse.com also offers two blogs covering blogging: the BlogPulse Newswire, which covers blogosphere trends, and the BlogPulse Spotlight, which covers celebrity and entertainment blogging trends.
