Techmeme Launches Top 100 Leaderboard

Posted By Darren Rowse 2nd of October 2007 Pro Blogging News 6

Techmeme LbTechmeme have announced their Top 100 Leaderboard page in the last 12 hours. It’s being called a something that attack’s Technorati’s Top 100 list by some (of course they are listed #1 on the list – so they would) – however I think that while it’s a great list and concept that it’s far from killing anything. As Gabe says in his launch post – it just tracks Tech sites that are part of the Techmeme system. They tend to track tech blogs with more of a business focus – so really it’s just tracking a small part of the TechSphere. It also isn’t really just a list of blog either – with a variety of types of sites included.

I think that Marshall Kirkpatrick’s analysis of the list is one of the best going around – Techmeme Launching Leaderboard – World Likely to Keep Turning. It’s a great tool – but if this is a Technorati killer then Techrnorati really must be in a sorry state.

PS – Yuvisense does some interesting analysis comparing the Top 100 at Technorati, Techmeme’s leaderboard and top sites on Digg (thanks to Maki for the heads up on this via email).

  1. I definitely disagree with those rankings. I find it hard to believe that Techcrunch should assume the number 1 spot from all the business-like tech blogs co-existing on the internet.

  2. Hey atleast you’re in the top 100 at # 90 :)

  3. Technorati is in a sorry state. It’s in its death spiral folks.

  4. How did I know TechCrunch would be #1 even before viewing this board? At least you’re on there Darren! :)

  5. I have to say I’m a little surprised to see the Sydney Morning Herald on the list. Even if at number 100. The few times I’ve read it online it didn’t strike me as a tech site.

  6. the only problem with their model – is the focus on Tech blogs sites.

    Technorati offers a wide range of topics – not just limited to tech
