Blogging WWW2004 : Link authority in blogosophere

Link authority and reputation management are two big topics at the conference. That ties into New Media Musing’s post today touching on which mainsteam news sources are most-cited by the blogosphere, according to Technorati data.

And the winners are? NYT, CNN, BBC, Washington Post. I believe this reflects the nature of the topics in the top-ranked blogs (hint: Campaign 2004 and Iraq). The data also suggest that bloggers serve an important role as news information filter (aka gatekeeper, mediator).
