In recent years, while amounts of the information in the blogosphere increase rapidly, the problems of information quality have come up. Discovering a good quality data is the important issue in blog space with overflowed information. In this paper, we present WCT algorithm for efficient blog ranking. This method performs a ranking process using both interconnection of blogs and structural weights for content in blog. In the performance analysis, we discuss the comparison between our algorithm and the previous algorithm for blog ranking. The result shows that our proposal has the high performance than other blog retrieval method.
