Technorati Upgrades on Its Third Blogiversary

Posted on July 24, 2006

Technorati has upgraded its website and a post from David Sifry explains the changes to the blog search engine. Here are some of the highlights:

  • New Discover section highlights posts in different categories: news, tech, sports, business and life.
  • Search: Technorati's search engine allows you to choose from posts, tags or blogs. The results page has been cleaned up and looks much better than before. Technorati also shows the fifteen most popular tags and searches instead of ten.
  • David Sifry says the blog inbound link counts have been updated. "In addition, our link-counting mechanisms have also been dramatically improved. If you're a blogger, you should notice that your blog is being counted much more regularly, and that your rankings and authority information is much more accurate and up-to-date."
  • The individual blog pages have been updated. These pages show recent posts, recent inbound links, recent outbound links, top tags, traffic history from Alexa and other information. A search box for searching the blog is also provided.
  • You can sort a search for who is linking to a particular post by authority or freshness. However, it doesn't look like it is working perfectly at the moment.
  • The Popular section was updated to show all the popularity rankings on a single page.
  • Technorati is also focusing more on Technorati members and including more member photos on the website.
  • David Sifry also said The Wall Street Journal has now integrated Technorati inbound link features onto its website just like The Washington Post, Newsweek and the Associated Press have done.
