In addition to blog searches based off either tags or keywords, Technorati lets you scan top videos, photos, news articles, games, movies and books.
The photo search is pretty cool to get a quick visual of what people are talking about at the moment.
I will use the blog search engine Bloglines as a benchmark for my critique, but most of it will be some of my own findings while touring Technorati to find some user-generated comment.
Welcome to Technorati’s State of the Blogosphere 2010 report.
Whether you're new to the service, or quite familiar with it, here's a guide to getting the most out of Technorati.
The main reason most people probably use Technorati is for the blog search (both by keywords/tags and URL to see who’s giving you some link love), and it has finally started to realize that by moving the search bar front-and-center on the site.
The website stopped indexing blogs and assigning authority scores in May 2014 with the launch of its new website, which is focused on online publishing and advertising.
Technorati uses real-time market insights to optimize digital advertising interactions across its publisher network with the use of technology designed to help publishers get discovered by advertisers and earn more for their content.
