I’ve just taken some time to read the Google/Blogger analytics for techfortesco and I’m both delighted and humbled to reveal that just over 12,000 readers a month (over 3,000 readers a week, where a “reader” is defined as a combination of pageviews and unique IP addresses) are enjoying the content – and that’s not including those of you reading via the RSS feed and who receive articles by email.
Technorati, the blog directory, seems to have shone favourably – techfortesco has a current Technorati Authority of 116 and is ranked 19,380 out of 1.1 million tracked blogs as I write these words. Mind you, at around the time of the iPhone launch the ranking reached the 6,000s so the live ranking is a good indication of a blog’s authority. I’m going to argue that the higher up the ranking the more effort is required to provide both good quality and a high quantity of blog articles. Very high ranking blogs that I read seem to publish as many as 20 articles a day!
