Technorati nears one billion links tracked

Doctor Evil

One billllion…

Technorati is currently less than nine million links away from reaching the one billion links tracked threshold. One billion links is a pretty big milestone, so we put together a contest for our members who would like to guess when Technorati will cross the one billion links tracked threshold.

Five minutes could win you a 1 GB iPod shuffle. I am ineligible to enter, but you can read all the details over at Dave Sifry’s weblog.

Remember as a kid when you tried to guess how many pieces of candy are in the jar? The same fun, but now we are geeky and count links instead.

So many variables to weigh!

There is no telling what will happen between now and a billion links tracked. You can follow all the action at the one billion links tag page.
