B.L. Ochman is saying that “Technorati is about to be sold to a large search engine company. The deal should go down in about a week.”
My bet is Yahoo – Yahoo has already bought Blo.gs and Flickr. They started their own social networking blog product Yahoo 360. They have been very aggressive with recent investments (Alibaba) and my bet is they are the ones who grab this one. Technorati fits in well with their current blogish acquisitions.
David Sifry, CEO of Technorati, is calling out Google and Yahoo to explain why their reported results are sometimes much larger than their viewable results.
Can someone from Google or Yahoo help me to understand why their reported results are sometimes 1000 times larger than their viewable results? I look forward to being educated.
This comes as a response to Tristan Louis’s comparisons between Google, Yahoo, and Technorati’s results.
Update: Danny Sullivan and Tristan Louis talk about Link Counts, Site Counts & Index Auditing.
