A while back, I made note of the Robot breaking the Technorati Top 100 US Politics, well today I notice the blog is in the top 50 in USP, and top 100 in General Politics!

Woo Hoo!

Where did I put those noisemakers and funny hats?

Hmmm, the New Year’s supplies are packed away. Guess I’ll just drink a beer and smoke a cigar. Oh, that’s right, I quit smoking.

Speaking of smoking, thanks, toots, you are smoking.

Some would ask, “‘Bot, what’s your secret?” The answer is, it is a secret, even unto me, for I haven’t a clue as to their algorithm. Still, it is kind-of cool. Whatever I’m doing, Technorati seems to like it, so, we’ll keep doing whatever that is.

I know there are blogs out there that get huge amounts of traffic compared to my little smidgen of the web, sometimes they throw links my way. That is really the biggest factor, in my estimation.

So, with that in mind, I go back to what R.S. McCain, of The Other McCain  would call “Shameless Blog-whoring.”

Have fun with what’s left of your weekend folks.


Yesterday marked a small milestone in the life of this humble robo-blog. The ranking site Technorati placed the Mind-Numbed Robot in the top 100 US political blogs. I have to say, those Technorati guys sure know their stuff!

So, I was much surprised to find today that their ranking list is down. Must have been rough, what with all of the Robo-traffic coming their way. Sorry about that Technorati, Didn’t mean to overwhelm your servers.

Luckily for us, I grabbed a snapshot of the Robot’s spot on the list, just in case they  come to their senses the news caused a complete meltdown of their system.

Looking at the screen-cap, I also noticed that the blog fell a couple of slots, meaning at some point the ranking was higher than 80. Always look on the bright side, I say.

I can only conclude that the major reason for the ranking is due to the fine writers and blogs that graciously link to this one from time to time. You guys make me look good and for that, I thank you. I’d also like to thank the Academy, my first grade teacher, Mom, my dog and God, not necessarily in that order.

Now that this post has been milked for all any dear and patient reader could be expected to endure, I’m off to find some other buffoon to poke fun at. It shouldn’t be too tough. There’s a mirror just down the hall.
