I heard about this story from Glen yesterday about his extensive research into the correlation between the Technorati 100 and Digg home page stories.
What struck me the most was that 29% have never been on the front page of Digg.
8 Blogs in the Technorati Top 100 are none English, and some of those as you would expect make up the largest percentage of blog that haven’t made the front page, but there are still 17% English blog that haven’t made it.
I would love to know which blogs have never made a front page that are in that Top100, as they deserve some Diggs.
Secondly of course it does need to be mentioned that there are 10s, possibly hundreds of quality blogs that for one reason or another have been barred from reaching the Technorati Top100 list.
A month or so ago I wrote about how to prevent being banned by Technorati and still retain most or all of the link juice you might get from various forms of viral marketing.
If you feel you have a chance of being in the Top100 in 6 months or a year’s time, I feel it is not worth throwing it away, although of course there are other gambits such as switching to a new domain name once you have built us a following, as it will most likely only take a few months to regain those links (it didn’t take long for Robert Scoble)
