why this blog is the best of the best of the best...

Technorati indexes and ranks about 113 million blogs worldwide. That roughly translates to 1 blog to every 50 living humans. And to make the statistics appears even more impressive, Technorati ranking also includes blogs from popular sites such as MySpace. Basically, no blogs are spared - so the ranking is one hell of a monster ranking. So to be ranked top 1/100th on Technorati is rather cool. I never thought SSL can be that cool. To flatter myself a little bit more, SSL is actually ranked 170,000 among the 113,000,000 blogs out there (top 0.15th). Respect, to myself. That's creme de la creme. Yay.

Then I did a little anti-narcissistic reality check...

Mind you, 70% new blogs peter out within 6 months of starting, so the index now should really shrink to 33.9 million.

Out of the 33.9 million blogs, only 10% have regular updates - the rest, with less than 1 new blog entry a week, do not qualify as a typical blog. So that slashes down the index to 3.39 million.

3.39 million is not a lot. I also have to come to grips with the fact that out of these 3.39 million hosted on blogspot, wordpress, etc, some of them are actually bot-sites or trap links with the sole purpose of generating traffic. You google for Britney Spears pantless and will find some blog links with zero entry except flickering images of porns. I will give it a conservative value of 40% - so that reduces the number of real blogs to 2 million.

Out of 2 million, 1 million is non-English. I'm suddenly outside the top 1/10th English-blog ranking.

Sigh. How did I end up average?

"Then you must learn to blog like us."
