The Blogosphere - Is there life without Technorati?
Yes, definitely. It is not the only game in town.
Ping UsWelcome back, musafir! When you update your blog let us know with a ping.
This morning it read "Updated 21 hours ago" !
In the first few days the number of visitors dropped noticeably. That is the bad news. The good news is that after I started notifying Google, Yahoo, Del.icio.us, and Digg my hits are averaging the level I reached with Technorati. So, based on my experience I'd say that bloggers can survive without Technorati. I'm talking about the vast majority of us, not the stars of the blogosphere. No doubt they receive special attention from Technorati and they deserve it. But bloggers have other choices, rewarding choices, to announce new posts. Listing in Technorati will undoubtedly increase the hits, but I'm content.
Have noticed that the Washington Post no longer shows a link to bloggers alongside all major news items in the web edition.
