How to Increase Technorati Rank

Recently I was asked by a reader for some ideas on improving the Technorati rank of a blog. Ultimately it is good content that will increase the Technorati rank of your blog. Technorati rank is based on the amount of links aiming at your blog, particularly from blogs with high authority on Technorati. So if you are writing about content that you readers enjoy, you are going to get more links. Of course exposure is also an issue, if your blog is new, your readership is likely to be much smaller than more established blogs, so with less exposure, even well written interesting content is going to take time to work it’s charm on your rank.

Here are a few tips to get things moving:

Claim your blog

You need to create a Technorati account and claim your blogs. The process of claiming involves filling out a form about your blog. It is important that you put in some effort here, include as many relevant tags as you can think of, and write a good description.

Add a photo/avatar to your profile in Technorati

All the search results on Technorati have a small space for a photo or avatar of the blogger of that article. If you have added a photo to your profile the photo will be displayed in search results on the site. This will make your site stand out and may help get you a few more clicks.

Tag your posts

Make sure you are tagging your posts. In WordPress you can use Simpletags or Ultimate Tag Warrior.

Pinging

Make sure your blog in pinging Technorati. In WordPress you can check what sites your blog in pinging by checking: Options / Writing / Update services. If you have never changed this setting it will probably have Pingomatic listed, which is good. Pingomatic does the job for you, pinging all the important services. If there is nothing in this box you should add this address: http://rpc.pingomatic.com/ . With other blogging platforms you will need to find out how to ping Technorati and other important services automatically. I have experimented using other pinging services as you can add as many as you want. But from what I have found unless your blog is in another language simply using Pingomatic will give you the best results. If you are writing in another language you should also consider using Pinggoat, which pings additional sites.

  1. I tried to add my avatar but got an error 😛 Apparently, it’s a folder permission that needs to be changed or something like that xD

    Anyways, you have some pretty good tips! You can also increase your ranking if other techorati bloggers link back to you in their sites 😉

  17. Do not know how these are going to improve the rank. The rank only improves when you gain backlinks from another technorati registered site, which should be the main concern.

  24. The tags you use and pinging can make a difference in your rank. Make sure that the site is pinged for each new post so technorati list them or you will not get all the traffic you can from the site.

  35. Hay thanks for the post. I think regular posting and maintained your accounts can help your blog getting a high page rank .Tecnorati is under maintainence and I will suggest that to promote your blog , you need to search about blog promotions.

  37. Thanks Simon,

    I didn’t know that I needed to register with Technorati first. I thought this was all automatic with my blog. This is great advice to update the avatar and photo for better click-thru.

  39. I hadn’t been doing very well with my blog. I’ve been trying to get a handle on Technocrati. Can’t wait to try it out. Sounds like a must do. Thanx

  41. I have found tagging & pinging help the most… And back links! Ultimately back links are what it all comes down to.

    Claiming my blog took ages as well for some reason? Weeks for them to accept it, I guess this process must be manual?!

  42. pinging should not be necessary anymore, right?

    All your new posts are seen automatically by Technorati. At least, that is what I am seeing since they updated their protocol on that.

    I don’t really understand why my posts aren’t getting indexed though. Technorati sees my posts, but is not adding it to the search function. I know they don’t add any blog to the search function, but I can’t find anything on how to get your already claimed blog indexed in their search results.

    Any ideas here?
