If your Technorati reputation factor sucks ass then read on, otherwise happily skip this post.
Technorati calculates a blog’s authority/reputation based on its link popularity, counting blogroll links from the linking blogs main pages as well as links within the contents of their posts. Links older than six months after their very first discovery don’t count.
Unfortunately, Technorati is not always able to find all your inbound links, usually because clueless bloggers forget to ping them, hence your blog might be undervalued. You can change that.
Compile a list of blogs that link to you and are unknown at Technorati, then introduce them below to a cluster ping orgy. Technorati will increase your authority rating after indexing those blogs.
Enter one blog home page URL per line, all lines properly delimited with a “\n” (new line, just hit [RETURN]; “\r” crap doesn’t work). And make sure that all these blogs have an auto-discovery link pointing to a valid feed in their HEAD section. Do NOT ping Technorati with post-URIs! Invest the time to click through to the blog’s main page and submit the blog-URI instead. Post-URI pings get mistaken for noise and trigger spam traps, that means their links will not increase your Technorati authority/rank.
It seems your user agent can’t ping Technorati. Go get a browser.
Actually, this tool pings other services than Technorati too. Pingable contents make it on the SERPs, not only at Technorati.
If you make use of URL canonicalization routines that add a trailing slash to invalid URLs like http://example.com then make sure that you claim your blog at Technorati with the trailing slash.
Please note that this tool is experimental and expects a Web standard friendly browser. It might not work for you, and I’ll remove it if it gets abused.
