Does anyone use Technorati anymore?
I was going through my bookmarks in Firefox the other day (it is amazing how quickly bookmarks get out of control) and I came across my technorati log in page. Luckily I use a password manager because I have no idea what my password is anymore for that site. Do any of you still use Technorati? I hadn’t logged in a while myself.
I was thinking back to when I first started blogging. I used to manically check to make sure my pings were working and Technorati was indexing my posts. How many sites linked to me (in later Technorati terms they call it your authority) was a good part of how I judged how my blog was doing. I don’t know, somewhere along the way who cares about what Technorati says about your blog. They just seemed to have totally faded into obscurity as far as that is concerned. Do any of you have a different experience or opinion on their impact? Would be interested to hear.
