Bizarre algorithm rates this blog highly

The Truth Laid Bear has evidently started a "topic list" for blogs where you can see postings on specified topics, somewhat like Technorati's tags. TTLB also ranks blogs within a topic. For reasons I cannot quite fathom, here are the top 20 blogs that talk about Israel according to their algorithm:

1. blog details page Power Line
2. blog details page Marathon Pundit
3. blog details page Desde Sefarad
4. blog details page Apropos Of Nothing
5. blog details page Doug Ross @ Journal
6. blog details page Spartacus
7. blog details page Jewish Current Issues
8. blog details page The Politburo Diktat
9. blog details page Daniel in Brookline
10. blog details page GayandRight
11. blog details page Elder of Ziyon
12. blog details page Soccer Dad
13. blog details page Donklephant
14. blog details page Bird of Paradise
15. blog details page Doubting Thomas
16. blog details page This Blog Is Full Of Crap
17. blog details page PoliPundit.com
18. blog details page Drink this...
19. blog details page THE DAILY BLITZ
20. blog details page Der Blatt

So even though I rank pretty low in TTLB's general rankings, somehow I made it to number 11 in the Israel topic blogs (today.) Why blogs like Israpundit aren't mentioned at all, I have no idea.

Maybe I'll rank higher if I write ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL.

Worth a shot! :)
