On March 31 at 07:59:35 Technorati tracked its billionth link. Technorati's one billionth link features high resolution photographs from the European Space Agency's Mars Express spacecraft (one of the pictures from the site is shown to the right). The link came from a post on Low Red Moon Journal. I've just gotten addicted to the writing. Funny how serendipity happens!
Technorati is currently tracking over 8.4 Million blogs and at the time of this writing, 1,010,554,747 links.
On Tuesday, March 28, I announced a "One Billion Links Tracked" contest for our members to guess time and date we would track over one billion links. Mike Manuel provided the winning guess of March 31 at 3:01 p.m. Mike, author of the Media Guerrilla Tech PR weblog and a Technorati member since 2003, wins a 1 GB iPod shuffle, way to go Mike!
Steve Kirks, Product Manager of Radio Userland, was the closest guess on or after Technorati's one billionth link but due to UserLand's relationship as a Technorati affiliate Steve was ineligible for the contest. Steve will receive a Technorati t-shirt in recognition of his continued work on Radio UserLand. Congratulations, Steve!
Thank you again for continuing to write and share your word and we will continue to provide new ways to follow online conversations and be of service to our community.
