Capitalize This!

I've always wondered why iBLOGthere4iM has zero citations in BlogPulse profiles. Well, last week, iBLOGthere4iM finally got my first citation and this sent the blog from a rank near 10k to about 6.5k. I assume there's 3k other blogs in their profiles with exactly zero citations. This gave me an opportunity to investigate. Turns out, Alec Saunders (my referrer) used the incorrect capitalization of my URL and this matches BlogPulse lower-case() everything bug. Or, so I assume. I'll forward this blog entry to BlogPulse.

OK - Cap's corrected. 
So how are they figuring their rankings? I have a reasonable number of citations, but am consistently "not ranked."

Blog rankings are wierd!!

I think they rank only 10k blogs. If you weren't in those original 10k blogs, then you will not be ranked, no matter how popular your blog gets. Or at least until they allow that 10,001st blog profile.
