A few days ago Alec Saunders, Mark Evans, Jon Arnold and a blushing Andy Abramson all drew attention to a “ranking” of VoIP blogs put out by Garrett Smith of SmithOnVoip. Even Garrett himself admits his poll is somewhat arbitrary; he did outline his criteria and they have been repeated (and praised) in some of the linked posts. Skype Journal came out well at a number 6 ranking in Garrett’s Top 10 list. Very encouraging and rewarding to find we are that far up.
Luca Filigheddu, an Italian blogger on VoIP topics, reviewed Garrett’s poll and then determined his own ranking based on Technorati rankings. Whereas Garrett’s “Smith Blog Rating System” rankings are “agreeably” subjective, Luca’s Technorati rankings are based on linkage statistics. Luca’s rankings switch Andy and Om for top spot but they always (deservedly) want bragging rights (!) and we always like to see a little competition at the top. Six of the Technorati Top 10 appear also in Smith’s Top 10. Eight out of thirty in each poll only appear in the one poll. Interesting, but purely coincidental that Skype Journal is the only Top 10 to have consistency of ranking in each system at sixth place..
Bottom line for me is that I have added a few more VoIP blogs to my personal blog reader and get a wider diversity of news and opinion for linkage in Skype Journal posts. And thanks to all who give us link love at Skype Journal.
