The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Respect my Technoratah

Or maybe not so much. This is the pitch:

On Fri. May 4th, we updated 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.

This is simple enough, I suppose. And so is this:

Since at the lower end of the scale many blogs will have the same Technorati Authority, they will share the same Technorati Rank.

And that Rank approaches infinity (not really, but you know what I mean) because they have garnered no links. My two side blogs have earned Authority of 1 and 3, which puts them — well, nowhere special.
