Are we really the Best Dog Blog? After checking my Google Analytics statistics I noticed an extra trickle of traffic coming from the Technorati website. Technorati is a blog directory and ranks blogs based on something they call “Authority.” Here’s a couple lines from Technorati explaining Authority:
- Technorati Authority measures a site’s standing & influence in the blogosphere.
- Authority is calculated based on a site’s linking behavior, categorization and other associated data over a short, finite period of time. A site’s authority may rapidly rise and fall depending on what the blogosphere is discussing at the moment, and how often a site produces content being referenced by other sites

The Best Dog Blog!
Anyhow after noticing the extra trickle of traffic we visited Technorati and after poking around a bit stumbled across the Blog Directory and clicked to the “Pets” section of the blog directory. Low and behold the top pet blog is PuppyInTraining.com!
Here’s a screen shot just in case our ranking changes (I’m sure it will):
Our conclusion is that if PuppyInTraining.com is the top pet blog then according to Technorati we must also be the best dog blog as well.
Thanks To Everyone!
We just wanted to send off a quick thanks to everyone for supporting our blog. We would never have reached the distinction as top pet blog in Technorati without support from family, friends, subscribers, and all the visitors who find their way to the Puppy In Training site.
Please keep stopping by the blog, subscribing, commenting, and linking to our articles. Who knows? Maybe one day we’ll break into the Top 100 list on Technorati or dare I say compete for the number one overall position?
For Your Information: The current number one site overall site on Technorati is The Huffington Post. I read they received 13 million unique visitors in March 2010 with 18 page views per unique.
What do you think? Is Puppy In Training the best dog blog?
