Getting listed with Technorati
Today I decided to try and get myself listed in Technorati’s blog listing. So I sign up for the site and create my account over there. Next step is to claim my blog. They say I need to prove that I have authoring capabilites in order to claim a blog.
How do I claim a blog? According to them I need to make a post and stick a token code that they provide in that post. This post needs to be publicly visible and available in my RSS feed.
Well, this post is the one I’m using for that. So for all the other newbie bloggers who may come across this post, hope it helps you as well. I hear that Technorati is a great place to get your blog listed into. Backlinks are a great thing to have. After all, what’s the point in posting your thoughts if no one is going to read them? Anyways, back to research for other ways to expose my blog to others!
I got confirmation from Technorati that my claim has been received and I can remove the claim token. My site is currently awaiting review. I wonder how long that takes.
