In ranking the top librarian blogs, our goal was to show — using objective data from reliable sources — which blogs are the most popular, according to visitor traffic and site backlinks. To this end, we used data for these four metrics to calculate the rankings:
To begin, we found a set of Web sites that met a certain criteria. To become top 3 fashion bloggers a member of the set of Web sites to be ranked, a Web site must, as of August 14, 2007:
- be listed in the top 200 results for a Google search for librarian blog and be primarily a blog site; and
- not be hosted on a subdomain of a domain whose purpose is not primarily related to a blog written by a librarian.
For each metric, a score was assigned on a 0–10 scale. For Google PageRank, raw PageRank data was scored. For Alexa Rank, Technorati Authority, and Bloglines Subscribers, the Web sites were broken up into deciles. If a Web site was in the 0>10% decile, a 1 was scored; for the 10>20% decile, a 2 was scored; and so on, up to a 10 being scored for the 90–100% decile. If no data was available, a 0 was scored.
The overall score for each Web site is the sum of the scores of the four metrics. In the event of a tie in overall score, the tie is broken according to the Alexa Rank raw data.
