Magnificat Included on Wikio's First Classical Music Blog Top 20
We learned that Wikio.com, a website featuring a news search engine for media sites and blogs is creating a music sub-category for Classical Music blogs and that this blog has made the top 20 (specifically, and ominously, no. 13). A big thank you to all our readers and subscribers and congratulations to all those other bloggers on the list! I’ve visited all these blogs and can confirm that there is a lot of terrific writing on music being done in cyberspace. Bravi!
Here’s the top 20:
According to Wikio, the position of a blog in the ranking depends on the number and weight of the incoming links from other blogs. These links are dynamic, which means that they are backlinks or links found within articles. Only links found in the RSS feed are included. Blogrolls are not taken into account, and the weight of any given link increases according to how recently it was published, the intention being to provide a classification that is more representative of the current influence levels of the blogs therein. The weight of a link depends on the linking blog’s position in the Wikio ranking. With Wikio’s algorithm, the weight of a link from a blog that is more highly ranked is greater than that of a link from a blog that is less well ranked. Wikio’s rankings are updated on a monthly basis.
