How often do you check your Technorati authority? Was it rising or falling? As for me and my account on that site, the last time I login was oblivious. Meaning, I don’t have much concern to check on my authority ratings or whatever. It was only today that I remember checking the status of my blog on Technorati. I wrote about the changes that’s been taking place on some blog search engines, specifically Technorati, and this arrow up and down thing.
This blog is already listed on my accout way long ago. But I wanted to change the url as it didn’t have the www prefix. I don’t know why but I always have the three w’s in my url. I’ve learned that there’s a difference between with and without www. Anyway, I did not delete the one without www, instead I claimed the same blog this time with www. But the new change has been added is to verify the blog with an assigned code. The said code should be inserted within a new post on your blog. I had second thoughts so I ignored it and said this blog was already there. Then without second thoughts, I deleted my claim and abrakadabra! The blogs are gone! My new claim and the old one that’s listed. Now, I have to do the claiming process for real or I can no longer see my authority and the rise and fall. So if you’re seeing this MZJAS582SMFF, it’s the code probably generated automatically for my claim. I’ll check my Technorati profile later if the code verifier has found it.
Speaking of claims, Alexa has the same strategy too, but the process of claiming is not the same as this one on Technorati. I am not particularly aware of what good it is to claim your blog on any blog search engine. It might be useful to get your blog visible and involved in the blogosphere.
