I got word from the people at Wikio that DRaysBay was making some noise in their blog rankings. For those not familiar with Wikio's rankings, here is a brief explanation...
The position of a blog in the Wikio ranking depends on the number and weight of the incoming links from other blogs. Our algorithm accords a greater value to links from blogs placed higher up in the ranking.
A blog linking another blog is only counted once a month i.e. if blog A links to blog B 10 times in a given month, it is only counted as having linked to that blog once that month. The weight of any link decreases over time. Also, if a blog always links to the same blog, the weight of these links is decreased.
Only links found in RSS feeds are counted. Blogrolls are not taken into account.
Our rankings are updated on a monthly basis and also include Top Blogs for several categories: Technology, Politics, etc. New categories will be added on a regular basis
For the month of February, our little site ranked 15th among their baseball sites. However, after R.J.'s retirement, we've jumped all the way to 7th in the March rankings.
