In June, Scott McLeod came out with his annual ranking of popular education-related blogs using the Technorati Authority index (how many other blogs have mentioned you). For whatever it’s worth, this blog was ranked at number thirteen.
Now, Richard Byrne at Free Technology For Teachers shares another list from someone using the Post Rank engagement score (which I don’t quite understand). Again, for what it’s worth, this blog is ranked ninth.
The value of such a list is debatable, though Richard points out that this list is somewhat intriguing because it’s made from someone outside the edublogging community using a supposedly scientific method.
I am, though, reminded of a comment I saw written by Steve Dembo, one of the first education bloggers I ever read, who said about Scott McLeod’s list, “That being said, I’d still rather be on your list than off of it!”
