SINGAPOREANS PREDOMINANT IN TECHNORATI?... GAMING THE SYSTEM IS NOT THAT HARD
If you check out Technorati right now (8:50am pst), you'll see "Daphne Teo" as the top search this hour and "Dawn Yang" as #7. So there is buzz in the Singaporean blogosphere on how influential and "predominant" Singaporean bloggers are over Technorati. Are they like the Brazilians that took over Orkut? Or the Filipinos that populated Friendster?
My guess that this is far from reality. How many of you have been part of a Google-bomb? It takes a bit of coordination to become the top search item on Google for a while. How much easier can it be on Technorati? Of course it's a lot easier.
So when a small group of people start blogging about the same thing, it's pretty easy to reach the top search items on Technorati. I think the buzz is a bit overblown, but it's always fun to chatter about such topics.
