Top 100 most linked to posts on Steem

in #steem4 years ago

During development of the linkback bot, I've gathered some data about internal links on Steem/Steemit that I'd like to share.

As many know, PageRank, a ranking algorithm that was a cornerstone of Google's success, used inbound links as a most(arguably) important factor for sorting search results.

While sorting method of the list in this post uses simple count of non-weighted links, the results may be quite interesting to someone who wants to learn more about Steem.

Note that only links made by top level posts that do not have a parent author are included in the rating. Links originating from posts belonging to the linked author were also excluded from the count.
