State of The Blogosphere: The More You Post, The Higher You Rank(September 24, 2008 TechCrunch)
All week, Technorati is releasing data from its 2008 State of the Blogosphere report. On Monday, Technorati told us that bloggers only need 100,000 visitors a month to make $75,000 a year (yeah, right). Today , it offers up something more believable: the more you post, the higher you are likely to rank on Technorati.
Blogging is a volume game. The more you post, the more chances there are that someone else will link to one of your posts. (Technorati rank is based on the number of recent links to your blog). The majority of the Top 100 blogs tracked by Technorati post five or more times per day, and a full 43 percent post more than 10 times per day. Meanwhile, 64 percent of the 5,000 blogs ranked lower than 600 post two to four times a day, which is still a serious commitment.
In fact, about a quarter of all bloggers spend more than 10 hours a week posting, and 66 percent spend more than 3 hours a week.
The more you post, the higher you are likely to rank on Technorati.
So, the position in the Blogosphere seems to improve by increasing the number of posted articles.
I hear that the majority of the Top 100 blogs tracked by Technorati post five or more times per day, and a full 43 percent post more than 10 times per day.
It only posts once a day for me.
However, the blog that enters the high rank posts a lot of articles.
The posted amount seems to be important simultaneously to improve the rank in the Blogosphere with the quality of contents of the blog.
