Non-English blogs in Technorati top 100

When one gets to the technorati top 100 most linked blogs the small size of the Indian blogosphere really dawns on you. For example the number 2 blog (with 23,406 inbound links) there is a Chinese blog, and the eighth ranking blog is a Persian blog (with 11,688 links).

No wonder that Rashmi is skeptical of the figures of the Indian blogosphere as reported breathlessly by the media. The highest ranking blog authored by an Indian is Digital Inspiration and that is rank 432 on Technorati (with 1891 inbound links). And this is the case when the majority of Indian blogs are written in English and can theoretically have a global readership compared to Chinese and Persian blogs.
