How Technorati Works
Technorati can drive a lot of quality traffic to your blog if you know how to use it correctly.
Technorati evaluates websites and ranks them according to their online performance. You blog can shoot up or down in the rankings in a quick space of time, and it all depends on the quality of your blog and more importantly your blog content as to how well you rank.
If you can make your blog popular within the community, you will receive a lot of traffic, so it is well worth the time and effort registering your blog on the site.
Once you have registered and ‘claimed’ your blog (you do this by adding a snippet of code at the top of a blog post) you will start to be ranked by the site which will rank you for different ‘Tags’ that is associates with your blog.
In order to give Technorati a better indication of the ‘tags’ you want to be ranked for, you should add site tags at the bottom of each of your blog posts.
Adding Technorati Tag Code
To add the correct tag code to the bottom of each post, you need to paste the following into your html code at the bottom of your post;
<a href=”http://technorati.com/tag/your+terms+go+here”>your terms go here</a>
Firstly you should have a look on Technorati and see the most popular tags at the moment by clicking the ‘Tags’ button in the menu.
Then, replace the your+terms+go+here with the tag you want to use, and then change the >your terms go here< section for the same term. Add one for each tag you want to include and you are good to go.
An example would look like this;
<a href=”http://technorati.com/tag/blogging”>blogging</a> <a href=”http://technorati.com/tag/advertising”>advertising</a>
<a href=”http://technorati.com/tag/working+from+home”>working from home</a>
Once you have added your tags, it might take from a few hours to a day or so depending on how often you update your blog, but Technorati will find them and then your post will have the chance to attract traffic for the tags you have included.
