The Top 30 VoIP Blogs According to Technorati

Luca took the whole  "Top 30 VoIP Blogs" discussion and instead of making it subjective, put the question of ranking to Technorati. Technorati Ranking relates to the number of sources that point to a particular weblog relative to other weblogs. The more sources referencing a weblog, the higher the Technorati ranking. This is similar to how Google ranks pages in their search engine and is believed to be a fairly objective measure.

I am gratified to be on this list, along with the nice comments Luca made about me as a writer. I find it a strange coincidence that I showed up as #19 on both the Smith and the Technorati list. Maybe my Technorati ranking would be boosted if I could get the 13 or so blogs Technorati says are still linking to blog.phoneboy.com to change to www.phoneboy.com, or somehow convince Technorati to combine the rankings for both sites. 

For me, there were three surprises: Andy wasn't in the Top 5, Ken Camp's Digital Common Sense and Realtime-VoIP blogs rank in the top 20, and the presence of several blogs I never heard of. I'm not surprised that Ted Wallingford's Signal to Noise blog is lower on the list, since he started blogging under a new URL recently. It takes several months to (re)establish your blog and I fully expect his blog will raise in ranking over the next few months.
