Looks like the Spanish blogosphere has finally found the power law it's been looking for for some time
. I have recently made some measurements based on Technorati linking data
(I have published the ranking in my spanish weblog
The issue here is that, while the global blogosphere seemed to follow a nice and cute powerlaw
, the Spanish blogosphere was somewhat different; the fit was not really good.
Things have changed in a year, however. While the global power law has been computed as y = 5989.8x-0.8309
, the Spanish one is more anemic with y = 672x-0.556872
. Standard deviation is very small, and fitting is quite good. As usual, y
is the number of incoming links, and x
If you consider blogs beyond the Top 100 the scenario is a bit different, but, what the heck, Kottke didn't consider them either. BTW, he considered incoming blogs
, and I consider incoming links
. I'll have to check that later.
