Brrreeeport report

Well, I gotta say, based on my little test Feedster is dead. It doesn’t report a single site back. Not good guys! (Update: Feedster reports its servers are being upgraded so can’t track new blogs at the moment).

Google’s blog search wins on sheer quantity (112 reported). At 10:28 a.m. pacific time. Note that Google’s blog search is DRAMATICALLY different than the main Google search engine. The main engine isn’t reporting any hits yet (neither does MSN or Yahoo). Yahoo’s main engine now is showing five results at 11:55 a.m. MSN and Google are still showing none.
Technorati is pretty good (97 reported). I like how Technorati looks, though, a lot better than Google and Technorati led last night in early returns.
IceRocket is reporting 66.

So, who has put the word brrreeeport on their blog but hasn’t shown up in Technorati or Google?

Update: Google lies. Er, stretches the truth again. Says “about 130 sites” but I count only 118. Technorati, on the other hand, is accurate and both says and reports 113 sites. So, Google isn’t ahead by many. Just makes you believe they are ahead.

  2. A day late and a dollar short, here is where things stand for me: I’ve got results on Feedburner, Technorati, Google and Blogdigger. Still nothing on Icerocket.

    This was a great experiment, Robert. Thanks for doing it. I’m sure our collective gratitude, reinforcing your own A-List blogger status, is a great bonus. Or, was it the plan all along? Either way, we all learned something.

    What I really learned is that your experiment suggests something that I’ve suspected for a while: Tags are the latest in a long line of traffic aggregation tools which will be abused to the point of damaging their effectiveness.

    Looking forward to the next one …

  4. Both Google and Technorati are about 7 days old for my stuff, so it’s not just the “brrreeeport” post that’s not up to date. It makes me wonder if the speed with which you’re linked traffic-related. Mine has a very small (though oddly consistent) number of daily page views.
