So, you have a blog. And you want lots of traffic to your blog. For that, getting your blog listed in various directories, submitting it to search engines and linking to other blogs/sites which have high page rank are some important steps you would initially consider.
When talking about directories, Technorati (www.technorati.com) is one such directory which comes into our mind. Getting your blog listed in Technorati is beneficial, though not the only thing you should be doing!
Here’s how you can get started with Technorati:
Step 1: Go to http://www.technorati.com/
Step 2: Register for a free account.
Step 3: Once registered, go to your accounts page by clicking on your user id at the top right corner of the Technorati page.
Step 4: Once you scroll down, you would see a text box where you are required to enter your blog site URL to “Start a blog claim”. This way, you can add your blog under my claimed blog list.
Step 5: Click on claim and on the next page add details about your blog. Select your category wisely so that you would get a good chunk of the right traffic.
Step 6: Once you are done adding categories and tags, click on “Proceed to next step”.
Step 7: Now you are almost set with Technorati. You will now receive an email with the claim token which you would need to include in a post on your blog so as to move ahead with the blog claim. This check claim process is done to verify that you own that particular blog.
Step 8: To claim your blog, go to your accounts page once again and click on “Check claim” below the blog you have just added.
Step 9: Now, create a new blog post with your unique claim token and ascertain that it appears in your feed.
Step 10: Only once you have posted the claim token in your blog must you click on “Verify claim token.”
Voila! There, you are done. Within a couple of days, Technorati would list your site in their directory.
Hope this has helped you.
