… according to Technorati :)
Inspired by this and this post by medienpraxis.ch I wrote a little script, which takes all Swiss blogs listed on blog.ch and queried them against the Technorati API for getting the number of blogs linking to them, the number of total links and the “technorati rank”.
At the end, I had a nice little list with which Swiss blogs are most linked internationally. No wonder 3 of the top 5 are written in English and the other 2 in French. And the first german one, number 6 Alles wird gut, I never heard of :)
The output of the script is just hardcoded html and I have to start the whole script it by hand. If there’s demand for it, I can improve it, make a nicer design and regularly ask Technorati for the inbound links. I won’t be able to query it more than every second day (soon), since Technorati only allows 500 queries a day against their REST API, and currently there are approx. 450 blogs listed on blog.ch… But that would be anyway more than enough, even on a weekly basis should be sufficient, since the list won’t change that often. Btw, I used the Services_Technorati package from PEAR for the querying part, which had some little quirk, but were easy to fix.
That today is Swiss National Holiday is pure coincidence :)
Update: Urks, forgot to post the actual link to the list. Here it is: http://files.bitflux.ch/top100.html (may change in the future…)
