How to add your blog to Technorati

February 27, 2011

Technorati.com is a search engine for blogs. According to the folks at Wikipedia, the name Technorati is a fusion of the words ‘technology‘ and ‘literati‘ to express the notion of technological intelligence or intellectualism.

Technorati indexes more than 100 millions blogs and assigns an authority figure to rank the site’s influence. This figure is calculated based on the number of inbound and outbound links to the blog, categorisation and other associated data over a period of time.

It is worth adding your blog to Technorati as it will ensure that your site is indexed properly and help to drive traffic to your site.

Here are five steps on how to add your blog:

1. Sign in (or you can join for free and only takes one minute to complete) and go to your account

2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page until you see the “Start a blog claim:” box. Insert the url of your blog and click claim

3. Fill in all the relevant details and the RSS feed of your site by simply adding ‘rss.xml’ to the end of your url eg: www.musingsfromtheprworld.wordpress.com/rss.xml

4. After adding your blog, you will receive a message in your email inbox with a claim token eg: C385RJWXNMVD which you must add to a new blog post on your site for you to complete your claim

5. Once your blog post is published, go back to Technorati and click the “Check claim” button to inform them your blog is ready for verification
