This is one of those quick tips that will show you yet another place you could be promoting your blog. And if you don’t have a blog yet, you should really, really get one. Blogs get picked up by the search engines very quickly, plus there are so many places to promote your blog, just that single strategy alone will keep you busy for months attracting new visitors to your website.

Where were we? Oh yes, Technorati. This site, for those who have not had a chance to explore it, is a major resource for all things and opinions on all subjects that have been written about in blogs. It competes with Google and indexes millions of blogs. Which is why yours should be listed.

Here is how to do it….

Go to technorati sign up and fill out all of the fields. You will then be sent a confirmation email which takes you to the next stage.

Claim your blog. It is simple to do, just add the URL of your blog into the fields, and Technorati will ping your blog to check the URL is correct. Then, you are given a code which you need to post on your blog so that it can be verified. Once this is done, you can write a description of your blog, add plenty of keywords, and add a button to your site so that others can rate your blog.

Once that is done, all you need do is promote your blog to ensure that your authority rises as the number of incoming links to your blog increases. Every time you add new content, you can get Technorati to show this by either pinging Technorati manually, by going to your account, clicking on My Blogs and hitting the ping button, or you can configure your blog to ping Technorati automatically.

Voila, the job is done! Another authoritative link for your blog achieved.
