Power laws

According to the NITLE Weblog Census, my site has 18 incoming links (roughly agrees with Technorati). That puts me in the 97th percentile of well linked weblogs.

A weblog like Homer vs. Kidd, with 2 links, is in the 75th percentile. About half of all weblogs counted by the census have no incoming links, and another 25% have one.

The highest you can get is a weblog like dive into mark or Where is Raed ? which are both in the 99.99th percentile. It’s all part of this power law stuff.

  2. Hi Steve,

    Where are you getting your percentile info from? Just curious.

  4. I downloaded the raw census data, sorted it by # of incoming links, and found how far my site was down the list (as a percentage). The list is N lines long, and I\’m at line X so the percentage I gave was X/N.
