Getting On Top Of Techmeme

Robert Scoble has posted about two interesting videos he did about reverse engineering Techmeme. The two videos are Part I and Part II, with the first being about 6 minutes long and the second being about 25 minutes long.

Robert explains how he feels Techmeme works and how you can possibly reverse engineer it to get to the top of Techmeme. In short, he explains how Gabe Rivera, who created Techmeme, uses importance ranking with linkage data and other factors to create his algorithmic based “blogroll.” For more on that, you can also read Danny’s Q&A With Gabe Rivera, Creator of Techmeme.
