Add your blog to Technorati


The site Technorati was introduced to me at the Center for Development of Advanced Computing by an instructor who happened to be CEO of a Software Firm. Through this post I would like to share my findings from my introduction with followers of The Bloggers Bulletin.

1. Blog Search Engines

Blog Search Engines are searching technology focused on blogs. They help users to explore the blogging universe more effectively, and perhaps inspire many to join the revolution themselves. Blog Search helps you be updated about any new trend, opportunities in bloggers community and their discussions.

2. Why Should I Use Blog Search Engines?

To let others know about your topics of discussion, it needs to be advertized at some place which is common for all bloggers to hit. This gives you and your blog a greater exposure to masses.

    Thanks for the tips. I didn’t know about IceRocket–just added my blog to that. I have my blog in Technorati, but I have yet to figure out how it really works. Every time I try and do anything within the system, it acts up. Have you had this problem? I don’t know if it’s something I’m doing wrong or it’s really difficult to crack. Any advice you have is welcome. Thanks again.

    Hi Michelle

    I am not sure what issue you are facing, but is it any way related to “claiming your blog on Technorati”. If that is the issue your facing then check if your blog has a rss feed link, since without that you will not be able to claim your blog

    Thanks for the education, Rahul. I didn’t realize it was so easy to join Technorati. Of course, I’ll wait until my blog gets past content only (which will include adding an RSS feed), but really do appreciate the tips.

    Rahul, I have my blog claimed in Technorati. The issue I’m having is with using Technorati. Every time I try and search within the site, it says there is an error, etc. Have you had this problem? Perhaps I just don’t know what I’m doing. Thanks so much for responding to my comment.
