Ranking factors
The Popular Parent Bloggers ranking is based on:

  • Technorati ranking
  • Number of blogs linking to your blog
  • Number of MyBlogLog community members
  • Number of Bloglines subscribers
  • Google PageRank (just for the heck of it)
  • The number of comments received in a week (weighted most heavily; I picked the last week in August 2007 to make it all equal).
