The rankings are finally complete! We have been looking at a solid way to do this for quite some time now and think we’ve found a formula that should stick. Of course tweaking is always a part of any ranking system, but we are satisfied with our first edition.
Le Basketbawl’s Top 25 NBA Basketball Blog Rankings will be released on a monthly basis with updates accordingly. The ranking system was based on 4 factors: the blog’s BallHype ranking converted into a score from 1-10 (10 being the highest), the blog’s Technorati ranking converted into a score from 1-10 (10 being the highest), the blog’s Google PageRank, and the blog’s Alexa ranking converted into a score from 1-10 (10 being the highest). If two blogs have equal scores, a tie-breaker was decided based on their Technorati E-Money Value.
You will notice a few blogs missing from the list such as Ball Don’t Lie, Indy Cornrows, Hornets247, and Brewhoop. We were unable to track the Technorati stats for these blogs and my guess is they are not subscribed to the service. Of course if we had found Technorati stats for them, they most likely would have appeared on this list.
