Some blog research conducted on Media Map has me curious about Bacon's approach to blog tracking. Case in point, check out this timeline:
Nov. 17, 2004: A search shows 102 blogs monitored by Bacon's.
Dec. 23, 2004: Bacon's announces it will formally begin tracking blogs.
Jan. 25, 2005: A search shows 91 blogs monitored.
I know, not a huge discrepancy. I assume they are eliminating old, outdated blogs from the listings. But it has me wondering if Bacon's has announced HOW they are deciding which blogs they will be tracking?
