Technorati adds Link Count Widget

Posted By Darren Rowse 21st of November 2006 Blogging Tools and Services 4

A couple of days back Technorati released a new widget that counts the number of links pointing at any given blog post.

It’s called the Link Count Widget.

So at the end of a post you’ll get a little link and logo like this:

Linkcount

This is useful in that it gives readers (and you) a quick way to track the conversation that bounces off your posts. I’m sure it’ll also stroke a few egos and conversely leave a few bloggers feeling a little left out by the lack of numbers that the widget reports.

  1. >I’m sure it’ll also stroke a few egos and conversely leave a few bloggers feeling a little left out by the lack of numbers that the widget reports.

    A very astute point – this is right in line with the Feedburner subscriber widget – if you have it, you show it. If you don’t, well, you don’t.

    This could be a useful tool if you have a large readership. But I wouldn’t use it unless it displayed something with most posts… And I’m not quite at that point yet!

  2. It’s interesting and i think it’s only useful for bigger blogs

  3. Just don’t understand how to put it @ blogger beta template.

  4. Yeah , i’ve noticed that . I think it is good way for bloggers to get instant access of the reactions their posts bring up .
