Technorati Attention Index

Technorati asked bloggers about the media that influence them (and their content of course) in its recent State of the Blogosphere report, and while the majority (61 percent) put blogs in the lead, it was followed by non-blog web content at 46 percent.

This non-blog content is (this hopefully will come as no surprise) mainstream media content - from the New York Times and to and PBS.

Technorati, a media search engine, is set to release The Technorati Attention Index to measure mainstream media websites with the highest number of blogs linking to them in the past 30 days. The data will be updated every month. Here's the top 10 list from Technorati's index:

   1. YouTube
   2. New York Times
   3. BBC News
   5. MSN
   7. Washington Post
   8. Yahoo! News
   9. Reuters
  10. Los Angeles Times
