Ecosystem Changes Unveiled
N.Z. Bear has released the latest version of the Ecosystem. See his detailed explanation at the link.
Essentially, he eliminates or reduces the impact of formal blog networks, excessive cross-linking between particular blogs, and excessive linking in general. The first two seem like no-brainers to me; the last is one that I find possibly problematic in theory but have no firm opinion of until I see it in action for a while. So far, it hasn’t hurt Glenn Reynolds’ ranking any and, given that he is the uber-linker, I’ll be curious to see how that works.
