If you recall, an article published by Hitwise (and later commented on here) said that Google’s blog search had overtaken Technorati as the #1 blog search engine.

Not so fast, my friend!“, as Lee Corso of ESPN’s College GameDay would say, according to this study from Compete.com.

Some facts are true, according to their results, such as:

* Google Blog Search’s recent traffic increase was closely associated with a prominent link to Google Blog Search which was added to the Google News Homepage in October.

* Google appears to have superior search technology (surprise surprise).

However according to their charts Technorati still leads in number of unique visitors and weekly page views.
