Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: Technorati THIS ...

14 July 2006

Technorati THIS ...





'Technorati' is BIG in the blog world.

It does all that new fangled, hi-tech electronic tracking, ranking, collating and analyzing sort of stuff.

Far, far too technical for the likes of us two to fathom fully, or to attempt to talk about in any detail.

But one thing we definitely do know is that it covers the cavortings, trials, tribulations et al, of a phenomenal 48.2 million blogs, worldwide.

Wow! What a wonderful watcha-m'callit, eh?

Anyway, 'This Old Brit' (so 'Technorati' told us), used to be permanently linked to 34 different blogs -- meaning we were deemed worthy of a permanent place on their blogrolls.

That in turn meant that those 34 blogs must have seen something at least slightly special about 'This Old Brit' -- and about the words we wrote.

Which, we'd like to add, were often written in our own bloody, blood.

Sometimes, in our sweat and tears too.

If you take our meaning.

Today, 'Technorati' says said 34 have (sadly), shrunk to 29.

Could it be that we're considered to have become crap?

Or maybe it's something we've said?

Eh? Maybe?

Well, since it's so late we're both about ready to bugger off to bed right now.

But we'll do our damnedest not to lay awake tossing & turning and wondering & worrying.

Oh, the big picture?

Bloomin' eck -- it almost slipped our minds.

It's David and Goliath.

We want to do a bit of bedtime reading re; the two of them.

You know, refresh our failing memories kind of thing.

Especially, as to how the story ended.

Maybe some others could do worse than the same.

Ya think?

G'night friends. Sweet dreams.

I've been away and am catching up Old Brit. Not a lot to say on the Israel issue, other than they disgust me and I hope against hope that this backfires on them. Although I believe it's already started to. Maybe that's what they want - arise in anti semitism so they can look for some totaly underserved sympathy.

As for those blogs who've axed you - f*ck 'em Brit, none of them are here for ever in spite of what they believe.

The God of Abraham has always been able to see the future. It's of his making. Also, revenge is His.
His advance chastisement and warning was to no avail. The price next to pay? No one knows but God. But it will be a high price. That should be obvious to all. Heaven help them? I don't think so.

I'm not sure, but I think Technorati have slightly changed their page ranking system, presumbably in the last few days, it may be showing a few less links for all blogs.

bluey,

Maybe. Anything could be the case right now. It gets murkier & murkier - while it gets bloodier & bloodier.

prospice,

Hmmm.

scali,

How the hell would we know?

Jultra,

Here's what I've just posted at ICH, re: Fisk.

*Fisk doesn't post at, or edit this site (Information Clearing House), so the double posting plainly had nothing to do with him

That being said, something certainly seems to smell here.

The link to the original Independent piece takes us only to the opening paras.

Does anyone have posting here have an Idependent, paid 'Portfolio' subscription? Since only those who do will be able to confirm [or not, as the case may be] whether or not the piece we're reading here @ ICH is in fact 'the real McCoy'.

If it turns out it is, then I'm buggered if I know what's really going on: I'm as bewildered as many others here.


Thanks for the heads up, btw.

Incidentally, Jultra, I've given you & your place a plug [along with some of our other regulars], in my latest piece.

Even if the ranking system changes the number of permanent links should not change, unless the permanent links have gone. You're eithther permanently (blogrolled)linked to x number of blogrolls, or Y number.

Whether or not ~ I'm with bluey Richard ~ 'f' them. (Can you check for yourself in any way?)
