(EDIT: I got Logic + Emotion's link count wrong earlier, it's been corrected now)
A ton of huge moves up this week. Some of the moves are all but impossibly large, so my guess is that Technorati is tinkering with their link-counting system. Especially given that the blogs with the big moves are mostly blogs that are at least 2 years old. Also noticed that Creating Passionate Users continues to be stuck at 8,460 links, and I don't see how CPU could have stayed on that exact number for what, 3 weeks in a row now?
At any rate, congrats to Diva Marketing, What's Next, Daily Fix, and Converstations for all joining the 1,000 link club.
No new blogs this week, but if TRati keeps tinkering, that could change quickly.
Next update is next Wednesday.

Which numbers are you using?
I just checked T-rati and L+E's "Authority" is 1,456 and "Rank" is 1,208.
It all still confuses me, but does authority = link backs? Or are you looking at "Rank"?
Crap, I think I just confused myself.

Sorry DA, I'm an idiot, I was looking at your Rank, and posting that as your Authority.

Ahhh, no worries Mack. Technorati doesn't make it easy. Too bad.

I have noticed the Technorati has jumps as well. It can change any time during the day as well as stay the same for days and then suddenly change. So the numbers Mack uses have to be a snapshot at the same moment and we live for a week with that number.
Thanks for your work Mack.
It seems I gained about 10 points just by making a comment on an Engadget story about my 10-year old Dell laptop that still serves as my primary work computer. So, either that was a really interesting story or coincidence.
BTW - Dell posted a comment on that article on my blog to thank me for my business 10 years ago! I believe you said something the other day about Dell being more proactive on blogs. I have evidence as well. Gee, now I may have to go down to the local Wal-Mart to see if they are selling Dell Laptops....

Thanks Mack for continuing the Top 25. Always seemed odd to me that the major search engine for the new 'conversational' media/marketing leaves much to be desired when it comes to providing basic information or responding to customer inquiries. And thanks all for the link love (smile).
