Technorati is one of the worlds most popular technology related Social bookmarking websites. So it should come as no surprise that We want to share some of our content with the community there. However for some unknown reason they insist on having their users create blog posts containing a unique code in order that they can verify that you own the blog

Claiming your Blog (5 Steps)

Here’s what you need to do in order to claim your blog:

1. Sign up for and verify an account with Technorati
2. Sign in to your account and click on your account name in the top right hand corner
3. You are now in “My Profile” scroll down to the section entitled “My Claimed Blogs” and fill in the URL of your blog and click “Claim
4. Fill in the requested details – Blog Title, RSS feed URL, a description of your blog and any tags that relate to your blog (eg. Banana Blog would have the tags “banana” “fyffes” “bananas”) When you are done click on “Proceed to Next Step
5. You are then sent a unique code by email such as N75RPBMSHHCU and asked to create a blog post and publish it. Technorati looks for this code in your post in order to verify that you own the blog.

I am as baffled as you as to why they use this method to verify blog owners. Why they couldn’t use a similar method to Google and Yahoo where you add a unique meta tag is unbeknown to me.

Anyway, there you have it, in 5 Steps. I hope this helps some of you to get on-board with Technorati and discover lots more technology related stuff!
