Just When You Thought You Had Me Figured Out: Links in an Entry!


I just read some essays at John Sviokla’s blog. He is the global managing director of Innovation & Research at DiamondCluster International, Inc. His bio is here:


My buddy Arthur Coleman pointed me to his blog, and John has three entries in his blog that you should read to gain a very interesting perspective on marketing and innovation:

You know that I throw links around like manhole covers, so three for one person is a new record. 🙂 Also, according to Technorati, only eight sites link to his blog, and that is just incomprehensible for the quality of his information.

    Technorati is inaccurate in their count of links. For months Technorati showed by blog having only one link. Which simply wasn’t true. I’m a little tiny fish in the big old blogosphere so I don’t worry about it too much. However, given that Technorati is all about rating and ranking, it seems the least they could do is be accurate about it.

    Glad to see a sense of humor to go with all this talent.
    Keep learning and go slow, you don’t want to strain a link muscle. After all, they aren’t really warmed up very well as of yet.

    Technorati is completely inaccurate with my blog as well, probably because I never became a member of Technorati.
    Another service is much more accurate for ranking blog sites:

    Hi Guy,
    Perhaps you should point Mr. Svokla to your excellent post on evangelising a blog? (which in my opinion isn’t that different from evangelising anything.. 🙂
    Warm regards,

    Alexa is very inaccurate for trafic data. It’s a sample based on alexa toolbar which means it’s ok for top ranked website but for small website you just need to have geek friends with the toolbar to rank high.
    My blog is an example of that. look at my sitemeter stat if you want

    My blog also does not have a high Technorati ranking, but has quite a bit of high quality content as I’ve been told. 🙂

    Is there any chance that your picture in the upper right was taken at Ronbinson College in Cambridge, UK?

    Hi Guy,
    I just finished reading through the first two entries you linked to. Mr. Svokla does indeed have excellent information. For someone who just found the 4 P’s of Marketing not long ago and found them outdated, it is refreshing to already see that much-needed “remix”.

    Wow, yes, how did you know that’s where the picture was taken?

    Glad that you are promoting less known sites with good quality. Some senior marketing executives have great content and insights (hopefully including me) and I am also grateful for your tips on driving traffic and readership
