Rifftides Is Rated: Who Knew?

By way of his splendid JazzWax blog, Marc Myers alerts the Rifftides staff that our little slice of bandwidth gets a bit of notice. In my naiveté, I didn’t know there was such a thing as a blog rating service, but Marc points to Invesp Consulting. If you go there, you will see several segments in which Rifftides is rated at or near the top. We follow only Wynton Marsalis and Contemporary Jazz in “The Ultimate Rank,” place first in “Top Jazz Blogs By The Number Of Incoming Links,” place first in “Top Jazz Blogs By Google PR” (!), and rank high in several other categories, as does JazzWax. Every line in the InvespThumbnail image for number5.jpg list is a link to a blog, making it easy to use the page as a point of departure for exploring.
Thanks to all Rifftides readers for being aboard as we navigate the tides, shoals and high seas of our fifth year.

    Congratulations, Doug, on the high ratings.
    I’m sure that many of your readers, like myself, have your homepage set as the browser’s home page and feel, when switching on the computer, that we’re ‘joining the world’ – especially those of us several thousand miles away from your world!

    Not only that, you’re also a 7 on a scale of 10 on Google’s PageRank for all websites. That is hawt, as they say. Compare JazzWax and Jazz.com both at PageRank 6.
