Looking for specific articles or themed blogs online?
Ever thought of searching for content on blogs using a tool other than the Google Blog Search?
Try Technorati, your gateway to tens of millions of blogs and the stories they tell.
To wrap up our Social Media week, I'd like to touch on one of the coolest sites that everyone can use.
Whether you're seeking out new information or trying to get your blog out there for people to read, Technorati is the top blog search engine for finding articles and other content by keyword search.
Technorati, the recognized authority on what's happening on the World Live Web, right now, is responsible for tracking over 86.8 million blogs and over 250 million pieces of tagged social media.
That's quite a bit of content, isn't that?!
Something cool about Technorati is that you can use it as a search engine and also a place to monitor the popularity of your own blog.
Interesting statistics from Technorati research:
The World Live Web is incredibly active, and according to Technorati data, there are over 175,000 new blogs (that™s just blogs) every day. Bloggers update their blogs regularly to the tune of over 1.6 million posts per day, or over 18 updates a second.
As I said before, you can either use Technorati as a search engine for blog content or track your own success as a blogger and see how many other blogs are linking back to you.
You can also save blogs to your Favorites and read all of your Favorite blogs in one place, for instance, you could save VOX Daily as a Favorite.
As a blogger you will need to "claim" your blog at Technorati in order to gauge your progress.
As always, registering for an account at Technorati is free of charge.
