10 thoughts on “technorati claim update

  1. One of your most intriguing posts ever!! I was trying to decipher it using my old Captain Midnight decoder ring that I got for 25 cents and two cereal boxtops, but to no avail. Glad I checked the Comments!! : )

    • Hi Mark,
      LOL:D I was surprised you hadn’t already commented on this. I’m afraid to delete it or mark it “private”. I guess if I publish more posts I can at least shove it off the front page.

  2. Is there a real benefit for “hobby bloggers” to be with Technorati? Of course, I want to increase my traffic, but I’m not sure at what cost (I don’t mean financial)

    For example, how do you deal with the fact that they demand a real name when one is using a pseudonym?
    What do they do with that information?
    Could it become public?

    • I don’t think there’s any particular advantage and I’m not concerned about the privacy aspect. The private information is not publicly displayed. I just received this email:

      “Congratulations, your claim is now complete! Please allow 24 to 48 hours for Authority and recent posts to begin showing for your site now that it has been successfully claimed. Once they are there, we will update your site’s Authority once per day. At first you may not see your site listed in the Technorati Blog Directory for all of the categories you’ve selected. As you write blog posts around those topics, you should see your Topical Authority in those categories begin to rise. ”

  3. When I saw the title of your post, I thought…uh oh….I barely understand the domain name information yet, or admin bar, and now I’m in big trouble with needing to learn about a whole new idea..I wonder what technorati claim account is?…whew…a relief…nothing I need to figure out yet : )

    • I got an automatically sent email saying:
      “Thank you for submitting your blog claim on Technorati. We have successfully crawled your blog and found the claim token, and your claim is now awaiting review.”

      I really would like to make this private but if I do that I may queer the process. So here it is a the top of the front page of my blog and the long weekend just began. :(

    • I discovered that my technorati account which is years old was recording my .wordpress.com URL rather than my domain URL so I updated my claim and had to post this on my blog so it appeared in my feed in order to prove I was the account owner and verify the claim update.
