Technorati Authority and 180 Day Inbound Link Graphs

Posted on May 6, 2007

Technorati says they have changed the text that used to read "N blogs link here" to a single Technorati Authority number. The number still represents the number of individual blogs linking to your blog over the past 180 days. A single blog is only counted in your Authority number as one point no matter how many times that blog has linked to your blog.
On Fri. May 4th, we updated Technorati to include the Technorati Authority for blogs listed on the Blog page and in search results. This update changed the earlier references of "N blogs link here" and "X links from Y blogs" with the single Technorati Authority number. On the blog page, we also show the Technorati Rank.

Technorati Authority is the number of blogs linking to a website in the last six months. The higher the number, the more Technorati Authority the blog has.

It is important to note that we measure the number of blogs, rather than the number of links. So, if a blog links to your blog many times, it still only count as +1 toward your authority. Of course, new links mean the +1 will last another 180 days.

On an earlier post about Technorati rank we explained how you can get a graph of your last 180 days of inbound links.

You can also change the days, width and height numbers in the graph.
