    My blog is a hidden gem, no doubts about it. But I do not understand why going with Technorati authority when a classification based on subscribers would have more sense… to me at least!

    I know lots of blogs with no quality content but with high authority just because they play memes the whole week. That “meme” player deserves more consdieration than other creating great content even when it does not have lots of links to it?

    Yes, I’m angry. Sorry.
