Tech Blogs Bump Conservative Blogs From Technorati Top Ten

Posted on January 1, 2007

The top blogs on the Technorati 100 have changed significantly since this time last year. Technology blogs have basically bumped conservative blogs like MichelleMalkin.com and Instapundit.com out of the top ten. Looking at the Internet Archive Wayback Machine listing for the Technorati 100 for January 1, 2006 you can see this list for the top ten slots.

One might have thought the Technorati 100 would become more mainstream over time but instead we find technology blogs topping the top of the list. It still takes a considerable number of inbound links to get into the Top 100. Gothamist, which is currently ranked 100, has 2,877 inbound links according to Technorati.
