How To Get On Technorati’s Top 100 Popular Blogs List In Less Than 7 months

Written by George Manty  · March 4, 2007

I just came across a blog that has managed to be listed in Technorati’s top 100 most popular blogs in less than 7 months!

The blog I found is Brian Gardner’s blog. Brian even wrote this post about reaching the top 500 and how he was on his way to the top 100. Well now, Brian’s blog is all the way up to 71 and climbing.

How did he make it in to the top 100 so fast?

Brian designs really nice free wordpress templates. In fact, he has 14 free wordpress themes so far! At the bottom of each theme is a link to his blog. When people use one of his themes, they are linking to his blog from their blog. Technorati’s rankings are based on the number of links other blogs have to your blog. So, in Brian’s case he is getting tons of links from other people’s blogs, which is quickly raising his Technorati ranking.

What a brilliant way to get on Technorati’s top 100 list!

Anyway, if you want to do what he has done, just follow in Brian’s footsteps:

1. Create lots of free wordpress themes or hire someone to create them for you.
2. In the footer of each theme, have a link to your blog.
3. Submit your themes to all the free wordpress theme sites and theme viewers out there.
4. Watch your blog climb the Technorati ranks.

That’s all there is to it…

    That is both a very lame and obvious thing to do.

    Not only that, but people are also going out and selling additional “theme sponsored” ads in the footer file and tagging them with a creative common license. So both the theme designer as well as the sponsored advertiser of the theme increase the number of backlinks to their site.

    Think about it… the average number of downloads on these themes are around 1000. That is 1000 more links you have pointing back to your site than you normally would have… now, who wouldn’t want that?

    It seems like a good link building technique to me. If it works, why not?

    With time people will see the link, and just remove it.Especially when the blog become big.

    Just thought that I would mention that it is worth taking your time when you create a WordPress theme. There are a lot out there to choose from and yours will need to stand out.
    Don’t forget to thoroughly test your theme before release because you want people to not only try it but to keep it.
