Technorati – No More Internet Blog search engine 14

TechnoratiReal-time search for user-generated media (including weblogs) by tag or keyword. Also provides popularity indexes.

Technorati sucks

Technorati is Dead

The Need :

Wow i am not surprised to read that description and i hate it . Hate it more than pop-ups. The time you create a new blog , all you think to do is blog submissions to various search engines like Google , Yahoo and Bing and social media networks which tracks your blog feed and show results when someone searches for that specific keyword found on your blog post . These includeMyBlogLog , Technorati etc .

All search engines and article and feed tracking sites do offer customer support or atleast are user-friendly ! While technorati – no way !

The Look :

Just check out its home page – 2 huge banners stuffed out , paralzying navigations . Again Technorati’s  Site Confuses All ! 🙄

They look like they are apparently moving from a “blog search” model to a “write articles for us” model.   Even twitter fail whale seems to be better option than stupid , pointless Huge issues with blogs that were deleted in the change .

The Authority :

Authority which was one of the ranking factors including Page Rank , Alexa Rank etc is nowdead . Nobody cares any authority as no one seems to check their technorati accounts .

Even the popular Ping button was removed because it brags “we’re so good at finding your posts, we don’t need it anymore”.  😕

Yehh , we love Broken blog search . Even after posting and verifying blog , one is unable to get respective results in blog search engine , Even google and bing outputs better blog results than technorati – the original blog search engine ! It would be fun to explore who are the people still using technorati Blog engine

Messy Algorithm :

It does not even provide a META tag to claim your blog/site . They have given me 9BGHH2M6QYCQ as a short code to verify that i are the author of this blog . I need to post the above code within a new blog post and publish it. Thus it lacks features and has many shortcomings !
Huge stories are popular with many super bloggers when they have their accounts jammed or incorrectly configured .

Its algorithm seems stupid .

Always be careful to not claim same blog from new account after unclaiming from old account . This operation made my both accounts sore . I cant change my blog description and authorities have resulted to zero right from some particular value . Again unable to add keywords and default country is set to USA which aint my country and i cant change it . Also my claimed twitter account seems to go through this lose . I didnt claim my twitter account from new one , just a blog then why twitter profile ? 😳

And the most amazing thing is that we are not able to delete our account !

For some strange reason, Technorati has not incorporated a delete function in which sucks a big deal . Check my personal experience of technorati .

Support :

After searching a lot , i got a message

To close your Technorati membership, submit a ticket via this Support Contact Form with Support Type of “My Account” and include:

  • Name of the account to be closed
  • The email used to set up the account
  • Why you’d like to close the account (so we may better serve our users in the future)

I have filled the form a dozen times – but damn ! No reply !

Their support is more dangerous than adsense staff . Atleast they [ Adsense ] reply within 3 days to the max . But more than 3 months are over ,

I am still waiting for it …

Peduced, almost across the board, with no explanation next to the new score . There is even a getsatisfaction network in which many people throttle Technorati . Check this forum to read funny curses to technorati

I seriously want technorati to not die and improve their network to once again be the same as it was 5 years back !

Hope someone from technorati reads this post and do something seriously 😀

By the way , did anyone faced any technorati problem ?

    It said that “Technorati Claim in progress’ 😯 still !
    Its very slow to get blog claimed and there is no descent traffic as compared to digg , reddit 😐

    I hate technorati . 👿 Its messed up and just goes on making money . Its just that they earn money from showing only sponsored results from some bloggers and huge flash ads that takes lot of time to load. Its only making money .

    I had installed technorati code on my previous blog for verification and surprisingly even after 3 months, Technorati was showing me status “Awaiting verification”.. Wow, how great and efficient verification system. Finally, got fade up and removed the code.

    The verification process is horrible. I kept the code for one month, and then removed it.
    And after all, as you said, everything is so confusing.
