I seem to have been evolving quickly through the TTLB Ecosystem, which seems to be a fun way of ranking blogs. Only a couple of days ago I was still on the bottom rung as an “Insignificant Microbe”. But by yesterday I had jumped five places up N.Z. Bear’s evolutionary ladder to “Slimy Mollusc”. And today I am one step higher still, a “Flippery Fish”. Why the sudden change?
Well, until yesterday, except for a blip last week, TTLB had not recognised any incoming or outgoing links on this blog. But apparently TTLB picked up fourteen incoming links yesterday, and another nine today. Maybe this is in response to a support ticket and an e-mail which I sent to N.Z. Bear, although I have had no explicit response. But my links still don’t appear on the spiral charts for this blog. Perversely, however, the incoming links do appear on the spiral for my old blog although the links, or at least most of them, are actually to this one. My outgoing links don’t seem to appear anywhere. By contrast, Threads from Henry’s Web, a “flappy bird”, has 58 blogs with incoming links and 124 with outgoing links. The latter include six links to my old blog but none to this one – although I can see for myself on his front page three links to this blog but none to the old one.
Perhaps I need to make another support call to find out why my outgoing links are not being recorded at all, and my incoming ones are being diverted to my old blog. Well, I’ll try sending N.Z. a link to this post.
