The FM site passes a milestone

Over 500,000 visitors since inception in November 2007, per Sitemeter.  Some other metrics:

  • Over 836,000 page views since inception, per WordPress.
  • Over 6,500 comments since inception.
  • This is the 668th post (posts from Sept 2003 – Nov 2007 were copied from DNI).
  • The site currently gets about 4,000 page views per day.
  • The Technorati “Blog Authority” is 203.

The traffic counters appear on the right-side menu bar, at the bottom.

Question:  The Technorati “Blog Authority” counter does not pick up many of the sites that link to the FM site.  Does anyone know why?

  1. The counter may not pick up some links because of the “no-follow” attribute that WordPress automatically adds to outgoing links. I view it as a aspect of the paranoia over “Free Rider Problem” and a symptom of an increasingly sociopathic culture.

  2. Congrats on the milestone, and may good luck and good techs follow your web voyage. I have enjoyed your posting since the DNI days, and I know the effort is not a minor one.

  3. A possible answer to your question.

    1. Technorati has removed the Alexa Traffic charts and daily post count from blog profile pages.
    2. Technorati no longer displays the links cosmos number [how many blog posts and unique blogs are linking]
    Instead, they are ranking blogs based on Authority which is simply the number of blogs [not number of blog posts] linking to a website in the last six months.
