I figured out a small mystery with the Daypop Top 40 Links page today. I had been wondering for the past week or so (although not enough to actually investigate) why the link to the Pyra advertising page was near the top of the list of popular links. It just occurred to me that the reason is that Daypop can’t distinguish between items in weblogs and the links for advertising at the top of Blogspot hosted blogs, so the links at the top of those blogs that haven’t paid to get rid of advertising all count in terms of popularity. I know … duh.
