Blogroll Search Engine Fakeout

My good friend BAC over at Yikes! got this from our mutual friend D-Cup at Politits. According to D-Cup, "It appears that the rules by which Technorati, Google and other important social websites and search engines rank blogs do not take blogrolls into consideration but do count links within posts". I don't know if this is true, but just in case, here's a repeat of my blogroll to fake out those search engines:

Thanks for the link!

I got this from MathMan at When Will I Use This? (yes, I'm pimping out my husband! Sorry!)

D-Cup: You're welcome. I stand corrected. And naturally I am especially fond of MathMan's "Don’t argue with me, this is my blog."
BAC: You're welcome, too. I'm proud to link to the two of you.
BTW, did the two of you see my post on Is This a Christian Nation?

PO'd VET, thanks for the link, my friend. I am proud to have put a link back to you on my old fashioned, do it by hand blogroll. No expert on Technorati, I did notice that none of the links back to me from two of the 'blogrolls' were showing up. Technorati, in any case, seems to specialize in "blog reactions". Washington Post used them. A cheap way to get a link back from the WP was to mentioned a WP articles and cite it with a link. It would show up automatically on the Washington Post as "Blog Reaction to this Article." I haven't seen that in awhile. Maybe they no longer do it. Anyway, my compliments on your blog and keep up the good work.
