The New Order

You might have noticed that my Flash links in the sidebar follow a new sorting system. What you see now is a ranking as Alexa sees it. I wrote a little PHP script that spiders over to Alexa and checks the sites' info.

So it's something like the top-100 (not quite) of Flash blogs. The and blogs have an unfair advantage, though, as they profit from Alexa's inability to rate single pages.

In a few days you may even see some trends next to the links: "+" means that a site's ranking went up, "=" means it remained and "-" means it went down. If you roll over the sign you will see the exact rank.

Technorati now also offers an API to explore the link cosmos of blogs. That might also come in handy.

Great job! I really like the script. Mind if I 'borrow' it and put it on the flogspot site?!
