Some of the blogs with the most comments aren't in the top 20 for the overall ranking.

I think the number and quality of comments is one of the best reflections on a blog. They indicate people don't just find their way there by accident or in search of something else which a high number of visitors migh. They show visitors read and reflect on posts and are sufficiently engaged to give their views on them.

Homepaddock: your blog isn't that bad! (3 comments av. per week). I note the Christians have upped their comments - but the subject matter is still the same. Not to everyone's taste...

Comments are indicative of activity and interest at least. I am comfortable with the weight they are accorded in the formula.

" I am comfortable with the weight they are accorded in the formula."

My observation was just an observation, not a criticism of your formula. The other two who also regularly rank blogs (Halfdone & Open Parachute) usually end up with similar ranks as yours though they get there by different means.
