If you’re a blogger, especially a business blogger, you’re going to want to "claim your blog" at Technorati.

Why would you want to claim your blog?

  • You can include your name, photo and description next to your blog on any Technorati search results. (I chose our company logo over my mug.) Technoratiresult
  • You can list your blog in up to 20 categories for Technorati’s Blog Finder, increasing your visibility.
  • You have a chance at being a featured blog appearing on Technorati’s home page.
  • You can get "cool tools."

How do you claim your blog?

  • You’ll need a free Technorati account.
  • Log into your account and click on "Blogs" at the top of the page.
  • Enter your blog URL into the Claim a Blog! box. Blogclaim_1
  • Certain blogging platforms, including TypePad, support "Quick Claim". This means you can just type in your blogging username and password (not your Technorati info) and have your blog claimed.
  • If you’re not on a platform that supports Quick Claim the next page will give you some HTML code that you can add to your blog, even if you don’t know any HTML. As detailed as the instructions are on this page… Technoratilink

    …they do neglect to mention one important fact: make sure you’re in "Edit HTML" mode rather than "Compose Post" mode, otherwise it won’t work.

  • Once you copy-and-paste that code into your blog and publish it come back to this window and click "Claim Blog Now". Technoratichecking
  • Once Technorati has confirmed that you own the blog (or have successfully hacked it) it will be "claimed." At this point you can tweak your blog profile: Technoraticonfigure
  • Although Technorati does a pretty good job of pre-populating your 20 available tags that will help your blog be found by the Blog Finder, you should add some of your own as well. In this screen you can also add some Technorati graffiti to your site, including a search box, a link to blogs that link to you (according to Technorati), your Technorati profile and your photo.

    To enable these tools you’ll need access to your templates, and a basic understanding of HTML.

  • Finally, success!

    Now all I have to do is climb my way over the backs of 34,645 other blogs to be king of the blogosphere!

    Hi Rich

    Thanks for this very useful guide. I've only been running our company blog for a month or so, but had noticed some hits coming from Technorati. Didn't realise, until I read your article, that I could improve things by claiming the blog!

    Cheers, Jon

    Thanks for the information. But what does a person do when they repeatedly attempt to get their blog claimed, and they get the 603 error. It must take a miracle to get in.

    When I login to Technorati I don’t find a “Blogs” tab or button at the top of the page. Thus I am not able to go beyond the first step. What am I doing wrong or what should I be looking for? Thanks.

    Coaches are one of the most environmentally sensitive ways to travel. coach bags Per person, they create far less carbon per mile than planes, cars or even trains. They also help reduce the level of traffic on the roads. Contrary to popular belief, they can also provide a very cost effective way of either getting from ‘ to ‘, or, as a comfortable means of transport on a tour.

    If you have been put in charge of organising a trip for any more than 10 people then hiring a coach will not only be your cheapest option but by far your easiest. Hiring a coach and a driver will enable you to keep everyone together, allow you all to relax, and maximise your time at your chosen location.

    City breaks are ideally suited to hiring a coach. London is a prime example. With a coach you will be able to be dropped very close to the places you want to see without having to deal with the London traffic. You will then be able to be picked up again and transported, hassle free, to your next destination. It is probably the most stress free way of seeing the capital and will certainly work out cheaper than you all jumping on and off the tube.

    coach bags cheap

    One aspect of coach travel which is a bit blurred is the standard of the vehicles and service. Most coach hire companies will brand themselves as a company specialising in luxury or executive coach hire. The reality is that very few meet the standard.

    We all remember school coaches. These are what you would call budget or cheap coach hire. These coaches do the job for a short distance but for a long journey they can be very uncomfortable. True luxury coach hire is a whole different ball game. cheap coach bag In some of these coaches, long distance journeys can actually be pleasurable. You can have anything from Sky TV, leather seats, wireless networks and power points to sleeping berths, catered meals or even conference facilities.

    Coach hire prices are low enough that if you have enough people on the trip, wherever it may be, the cost of this level of luxury can actually be very affordable.
    Modern day coach travel doesn’t need to be the uncomfortable experience with which it is usually associated. If you do it right, it can now provide all the conveniences of air and rail travel but with even greater flexibility. cheap coach bags There are lots of companies specialising in this type of coach hire in UK, especially in coach hire in London . Many of these companies operate online and will be able to provide you with an online quote.
    coach bags for cheap
    Coach travel is often overlooked because of the perception then either being very basic or too expensive. The reality is very different. Coach hire, in the right circumstances, can offer a cheap, luxurious, environmentally friendly and hassle free alternative to other means of transport.
    To find more information on coach hire services simply visit City Circle website.

    Little to none. There are much more important factors these days. Claiming your blog at Technorati certainly won’t hurt, but I can’t remember the time we suggested this to a client.

    You’ll get more bang for your buck at AllTop.com and I’d also recommend focusing more on the search engine optimization of each post, writing to your audience, and engaging with similar bloggers at their blogs.

    Good luck!
