Technorati: Porn Peddlers and Your Blog Image

Posted By Bryan Eisenberg On September 6, 2007 @ 10:08 am In Advertising,Blogs | 7 Comments

We all loved it when Technorati had us ranked as the #1 blog [1] last month but, this morning, I had another shocker…

I wonder who at Technorati even cares what people think about them now that founder David Sifry and several others have left [2]. Check out the banner ad I found on my rankings page this morning:

technorati is peddling porn [3]

How would you feel if this banner (click thumbnail) for porn popped up next to your blog? I doubt David Sifry [4] would publicly comment. I also wonder what these fine bloggers would have to say if it happened to them:

Seth Godin [5]
Joseph Jaffe [6]
Darren Rowse [7]
Mitch Joel [8]
Robert Scoble [9]
Elaine Vigneault [10]
B.L. Ochman [11]
David Dalka [12]
Andy Beal [13]
Valeria Maltoni [14]
Mack Collier [15]
Todd Andrlik [16]
