Totally different metric. And I'm not sure Google's site: operator is very meaningful in terms of page counts.

This organizes the TOP 100 by amount of Pages in each site

Technorati – organizes THEIR Top 100 by amount of SITES that Link to a Blog

===============================

====================

The reason this new reordering is interesting, is that it illustrates how many blogs became popular with JUST RELATIVELY FEWER PAGES –
...and a few, like Matt's Blog, are relatively newer, which makes their acheivement even More Impressive

Page count indicates how large a site is. It's no perfect indicator, and it can be skewed, but it's a start...

When we want to see a more similar metric we can order using the "link:" operator... I just added this:
blogoscoped.com/files/link100. ...

With counts of links I see seth's blog twice- position 42 and 63. I assume that this is a type err when feed the link search.

I am still not confident with the link farm at technorati as they still have issues with the 1+1 problem of linking.

The blog appearing twice is an error of Technorati's data, which I just re-ordered for this... search for "seth", it appears twice here :)

I just noticed this too.. for seth's blog..

Postion 39 URL = sethgodin.typepad.com/
Postion 82 URL = sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_bl ...

This also calls for Technorati to open up its link farming algos.. so that community can discuss it!!
