My Technorati Authority Skyrockets
One of the most difficult things I ignore, as a blogger, is where my blog ranks on any number of lists and meters. Even though I fill my blog with content and photos I personally produce & edit for free does not mean I do it all for nothing. I am one of those that is aware of things like Google PageRank, Alexa Rank and Technorati Authority, yet does not coddle to any of them. Anyway, the point of this post is to enlighten those that live for rank and recognition. I have recently produced an article about Bradley Manning with photos and text that has absolutely blasted off in terms of internet credibility.
San Diego hosted a rally this past Sunday that demanded the release of Bradley Manning, so I attended, took video and posted photos as well as text. The unexpected artifact of my excursion was acknowledgment by Wikileaks.org, via twitter, and the subsequent use of my photos and words all over the internet. This caused my Technorati Authority to jump by 307 in less than a day! So, what did we learn? Great photos combined with great, current event text is what the world wants to see, and are what will make your blog get noticed.
