Technorati Search Results Useless for Me

Stefan Tilkov,

I am at a total loss to understand my blog’s Technorati search results. They used to be pretty useful, but all I can see now is links from my own blog to itself. I have no idea what causes this, and I have not seen this with other blogs I have tried to get the cosmos for.

Hmm, when I look up your link-cosmos it says “Stefan Tilkov’s Random Stuff has 65 Links from 12 Sources”.

Many of them are from your Blog, but not all of them.

Thanks for checking - yes, I have the same results. However, I have never seen this with other blogs, although they also reference their own posts, have a list of recent entries on the home page, etc. I’m trying to find out what’s causing this useless (to me at least) self-referencing links to appear.

OK, so I took “all I can see” a little too literally.

I’ve seen this for some other blogs from time to time but must admit that I fail to understand why it happens as well.
