ONE MYTH STARTED BY A “GURU” during the WIMS 2007 seminar was: Google does not index the blogs on Google Blogger! To prove this point, the speaker said he had scanned through the Top 100 blogs on Technorati and found that not a single one came from Blogger.
This is definitely NOT true. First, blogs on Google Blogger have addresses that end with blogspot.com and NOT blogger.com. Second, blogs on Google Blogger might not even have addresses that end with blogspot.com if the owner chooses to point another domain on that Blogger blog. For example, Robert Scoble pointed the Scobleizer.com domain at his Scobleizer.WordPress.com blog and his blog is listed as Scobleizer.com in Technorati (Authority: 6,232, Rank: 70) with no trace of blog host WordPress.com at all.
Here are some counter-proof: Some of the Top 100 Technorati blogs that I know for a fact are on Google Blogger are:
- Insight#4: Of Alexa, Dmoz & Technorati
- Asia Social Media projects – 2 months later
- Top Blogs in China, Malaysia & Philippines
- Stop Linking to Me, D-Listers
- Claiming My Blog on Technorati
- Internet Marketing: Successes or Scams?
- My Chinese Blog on Baidu «百度» ;-)
