Twingly v. Technorati

At some point, lost in the mists of time and place that is the web, I signed up to Twingly (yet another blog search engine). I just returned to the site for the first time since signing up, as they sent me an email highlighting their new 'blogrank' and 'top 100'. Whilst their blogrank isn't worth mentioning (primarily because mine is a pathetic 'you get 1 for turning up'), it is always interesting to see lists of the 'top bloggers', especially when there are such differences between the lists.

The most noticeable difference is the lack of a 'Huffington Post' on the Twingly list; in fact it's not even in the top 100! Seemingly Twingly still have some work to do regarding their crawling and identifying spam. One feature that is nice about Twingly is the top 100 for different languages; whilst the top-100 English language blogs is seemingly out of my reach, breaking into the top-100 Greek language blogs seems a distinct possibility. αύριο θα μάθω τα ελληνικά

i use the service ://URLFAN which to me is more transparent in regards to "ranking websites". Their top 100 is pretty well respected in the web 2.0 world:

urlfan ranks sites according to their popularity in the blogosphere and shows all their data. It's a little more clear than both technorati and twingly when it comes to ranking websites, since thats what they focus on.
