Technorati was the first blog search engine, it indexes more than 1 million blogs and is the main source for blog information emerging in several markets across the world. There are hundreds of member writers providing premier content on a wide range of topics daily.
It takes time for Technorati to complete the promotion process for your blog but is well worth it considering the company you are keeping and the immediate benefit from having your blog listed, they promote to other sources looking for content as well, some of the blogs posted at Technorati are Huffington Post, TechCrunch, TMZ, BuzzFeed, and the Official Google Blog. To read about how to add your blog click here.
How to proceed, first of all create an account at Technorati, its free and really easy to do. Once that is completed you can add details about yourself in the profile, wise move s that when your blog is claimed your information is their so folks can see other things you are writing about or doing.
Now you have your account and are ready to claim your blog. At the bottom of your profile page is Claim Your Blog. Type in the name of your blog and click the Claim button. Then you add Blog Title, URL (this should be already filled in if you typed the url in the blank by Claim button), Feed url (if you are adding your Writers Cafe blog then you will use: http://www.tweekniks.com/yourblogname/feed/ in this blank, you need to know what goes where “yourblogname” is email me and I can help you.
After than you can add 3 additional linking blogs, ones you write for or those of friends.
In the Site Description you want to add what your blog is about, how you started it, about yourself or other interesting facts. This should be used as a metadata section to add to the promotion of your blog.
Site Categories is another way to define and add tags for your blog, you may not find exactly what your main theme or focus is but be sure to pick the limit of three as close as you can get, for one thing I noticed there is not category for women. I have already notified them that I really feel there should be such an additional catagory.
Now here is where you can really shine in Site Tags! Add them all make sure you have something in all the spaces to take complete advantage of this.
Then you click the next step button and the Blog Claim Status information appears. Once you reach here an email is sent to you with a token to be added to a blog post and the post published so that the Technorati bots/spiders can review your blog find the token and know that your claim to this blog is as the blog owner. This prevents a script being written to add multiple blogs.
While I have posted Writers Cafe as a group and all 19 of your blogs individually to several promotion sites and feed lists I can not do Technorati for you because as I said above it requires a token be placed in a published blog post. If you want to reach more readers and more opportunities to be read or your content used and be paid for it listing on the Technorati site might be worth the time.
