Step by Step Tutorial to Get Your Blog Listed at Technorati Directory

technorati-logoUpdate: Technorati had closed their blog directory service and you can no longer list your blog on their site.

Technorati is  one of the most well-known blog search engines online. This is the place where many bloggers turn to when doing research or looking for blog entries on a particular subject. But one of the great mysteries appears to be getting listed in Technorati  directory and making sure your blog’s pages are being properly indexed.

Follow this simple steps to get your blog listed at Technorati directory:

  • You need to register with them. Click on the Join link available on the top right side of the website. Provide the necessary data to them and get register.
  • Go to your account.
  • Look at the end of your account page, find start a blog claim. Enter your blog url there and click on search.
  • Enter your blog details and submit your blog.
  • You will get a mail about your blog submission.
  • Now go back to your account again and look at the bottom of the page. Your blog screen shot and url will be there. Click on Check Claim.
  • In next page you will get something like this:
  • “Technorati will need to verify that you are an author of the blog by looking for a unique code. Please put the following short code D447CJPKTN5V within a new blog post and publish it. Once it is published, use the “Verify Claim Token” button to tell Technorati your blog is ready for verification.”
  • Add a new post in your blog with your short code. Our was D447CJPKTN5V.( The best way is to put it into your title)
  • After posting your new page with that code click on “Verify Claim Token”. ( make sure your new page had showed up in your feeds)
  • If all done right you will get a message
  • “We have successfully crawled your blog and found the claim token, and your claim is now awaiting review. “
  • Technorati review every blog manually. Due to very large numbers of blog claims it can take 1 week to 3 months for your blog to get listed.
  • When your blog get Reviewed by Technorati team they will send you a mail saying something like this:
  • Congratulations, your claim is now complete! Please allow 24 to 48 hours for Authority and recent posts to begin showing for your site now that it has been successfully claimed. Once they are there, we will update your site’s Authority once per day
    At first you may not see your site listed in the Technorati Blog Directory for all of the categories you’ve selected. As you write blog posts around those topics, you should see your Topical Authority in those categories begin to rise.
  • And W00t your blog got listed on Technorati,

Note very important: Technorati crawl the page content provided in feeds. It  does not goes to page to craw content. So the best way to verify is to put your short code in post title itself. If your feeds show complete page content then it’s ok to put your code anywhere in the post.

    It took me agest to get listed with Technorati and although they have finally accepted the verification, they are still taking time to include me in the directory… Bit annoying really!

    • Azad Shaikh

      Hey Jorgen its nice to see you again. Ya it’s true, Technorati verification system is too slow.

    Hi there. Huge thanks for this post. The whole technorati issue has been driving me mad for two nights now. Great post -- excellent work :)

    • Azad Shaikh

      I am glad that my post helped you. Did you get your blog reviewed?

  • Peter

    Hi Azad,
    havent jumped that hurdle yet -- thus far blog has been claimed & ownership token verified. Fingers crossed :)

    • Azad Shaikh

      Best of luck for your blog. Mine blog is still under review phase, hope to get listed by next month. The really problem is the manual review and very large numbers of blog submissions. You seems to be an social media expert, will get to your blog later.

  • Peter

    Hi Azad,
    thanks for the wishes. I wouldn’t profess to being a SM expert -- more than enough SM experts out there already :)
    I am enjoying some aspects of the whole interaction thing though. I hope that they review your blog ahead of time & get you listed quickly. Regrds Peter

  • cev

    I have claimed and my blog status in “Jan 20, 2010. We have successfully crawled your blog and found the claim token, and your claim is now awaiting review” it’s 4 day ago. How long time need be approved?

    • Azad Shaikh

      Hi Cev,
      Due to large number of blog claims and manual reviews by Technorati, the process get very slow. It can take from 1 week to 3 month for your blog to get listed. Don’t worry about the listing if your blog is good and follow there TOC then sooner or later it will get listed.

  • Tech Review

    Hey man. I have done almost every step you have mentioned here. I want to know how much time does Technorati takes to Review Blog? I had submit my blog 2 weeks ago But still its in Review process. Can you tell me exact time frame? Thanks:smile:

    • Azad Shaikh

      Hey as i said before due to large number of blog claims and manual reviews by Technorati, the process get very slow. It can take from 1 week to 3 month for your blog to get listed.
      Don’t worry your blog will get listed soon. You got a nice blog.
      Thanks for comment.

  • Tech Review

    Thanks for the compliment Azad. Your blog is seems to be quite informative and i had created my blog one months ago. Still have a long way to go. You have maintain your blog quite nicely. have you listed on Technorati? and how much time it tooks. Thanks:smile:

    • Azad Shaikh

      Internet Geeks had not yet listed on technorati but my other blog got listed after 2 months. Hopefully Before the end of February we will get listed.
      Why are you using blogspot when wordpress is available? :smile:

  • Vincent Navarino

    I put my blog on there a month ago, it’s been verified and now awaiting review to be listed. While it’s slow going it’s good to know that eventually it will get up there. Maybe they need more reviewers? Looking forward to my site being listed. Thanks for your article, it helps.

  • Tommie

    I thought i was the only one going through this long process.. mine’s been claimed since Jan 19, 2010… yet i havent been added to the directory.

  • Brooke Lorren

    Good article. I was wondering how long it would take, and yours was the first article that actually had some numbers, rather than “it could take a while”. A while could mean anywhere from a week to a year, you know?

    My initial email was different than yours though. It didn’t even tell me to put the claim token in my blog. It said that it will tell me on the web site what to do with it, or something like that. It wasn’t until I searched for information on the internet that I saw that you had to put the token in a post. Doh!

  • Dejan Viduka

    Good article, maybe he could write something about yahoo and dmoz directories and how to put on their list. :smile:

    I looked at 5 sites with outdated info (including 1 recently published) before I found your correct instructions. Thanks so much.

  • Peter McMahon

    Hi again Azad,

    Just thought Id drop back in with a follow up post. Thought you might like to know that I finally got listed with technorati last week. My first post was Jan 21 -- this was when I followed your excellent post above and started the process.

    That would put the approval time with the technorati team at about 6-7 weeks.

    Hope all is going well for you.

    Best regards, Peter

    • Azad Shaikh

      Hi Peter McMahon,
      I am glad that your blog get finally listed on Technorati. Now you should be increasing you authority to get more benefit from Technorati.
      I am doing great, but cannot able to give more time to my blog as i am doing some other projects and they are also important.

      Wish you and your blog more success in future. And thanks for giving us a valuable backlink from your blog, i really appreciate that. And let me know if i can be any help to you.

      Warm Regards,
      Azad Shaikh

    Interesting blog that you have. I stumbled on a new one the other day. They look open for business, but very similar to with more of a social business directory look and feel. Nice clean interface though. Located at

  • Vincent Navarino

    While my site is listed now it’s been like 2 months and no blog posts have shown up there.

  • PrettyBrown

    thank you for providing the general inforamtion about texhnorati:) very impressive!

    Hi, thanks for this info. I’m still puzzled. My blog has been reviewed, I have the Authority number that keeps going up slowly but I can’t find my blog on their blog listing and it’s not picking up my new posts?! I only picked one category so shouldn’t be hard to get listed. Hope someone can shed more light on this or tell me email address for Technorati to ask them direct.

  • Penny

    Thanks for the title tip. Was not wanting to find my token. Made a new post with the token in the title like you suggested. : )

  • Andy Britnell

    Hi Azad

    As many other people have said this has been a very useful guide to getting listed on Technorati.

    We went through this process with our blog about 3 months ago and have since found that our blog has not been accepted. We have checked their factors that mean you can’t be listed and are puzzled why ours fails the test.

    How do we challenge this and get our site listed? Can you see anything that is preventing them including us?

    Many thanks


    • Azad Shaikh

      Hi Andy
      You website is very good looking and have quality. The only reason i see not accepting the website is because of your website name. Now a days keyword “Work from Home” became quite spammy so may be they didn’t look at your website properly.
      You can contact Technorati people at and let them know about your website in more detail and demand a explanation about your website rejection .

      Also as far traffic and backlinks is consider there are not much benefits with technorati. Rather you should try and get listed on various blog directory and content aggregation websites.

      Hope this help.

      • Andy Britnell

        Just wanted to say thanks again for your info -- we are now on Technorati thanks to your advice. The getsatisfaction post I did got an instant reply and an instant place on Technorati. Now all we have to do is to increase the authority (118) although traffic is more important of course.

        Best wishes


        • Azad Shaikh

          Glad that your website got listed, congrats. My blog authority is 431 and is also in top 100 small business blog.

          I got 25+ visitor daily from technorati. The most important factor to increase your authority is to post regularly (one post a day can increase your authority upto 600) and use important keywords in your title (like blogging, google, yahoo, technology, business etc.)

          Don’t forget to write review of my blog lol just kidding.

          • Andy Britnell

            Since you have helped me so much I have of course reviewed your site on Technorati.

            You deserve some praise for your excellent customer focus

            Top Internet Geek!

            Best wishes


  • Andy Britnell

    Hi Azad

    Thanks for the positive feedback and your excellent explanation -- we will follow your sage advice and see if they accept out blog.

    As usual you go the extra mile and offer other useful info. We will definitely look at other blog directories and content aggregation sites to see what extra juice we can produce.

    Many thanks

    Hi. I have just finished claiming my blog site. As you suggest, I’m waiting for the whole process to complete. I hope it can help my site to get more traffic as I’m just starting in blogging.

  • Amarpreet

  • MakeupIsArt

    Hi! Thanks for this tutorial! But about the code that I should put in the post title… by the time technorati checks if it’s there, there’ll be other posts… will they therefore be able to search for the code among all the posts or should I include the code in every future posts…?

    • Azad Shaikh


      You have to put the code in your latest post. And once the code is confirmed by Technorati you can remove it and don’t need to include them in future posts. Hope this answer your question.

  • Nancy Fairbrother

    Very clear directions. Without you, I wouldn’t have started the process -- I was so confused. Even though the procedure has changed, evidently, and I may have to wait quite a while, at least I’ve started the process. Thanks so much for this post!

  • Christina Schweighofer

    Awesome instructions. I was getting frustrated with the crawler twice not finding the code. I had it hidden at the end of a real post and due to my settings feeds were only showing short versions… The claim is still being reviewed but thanks anyway!

  • Christina Schweighofer

    My claim was accepted! Thanks again!

  • Brenda Nicholson

    I listed and claimed both of my blogs at Tecnorati a long time ago. ( and Neither are showing up in the directory and I do update both of them several times a week. Sorry your article didn’t help me. I’m sure it was my ignorance and not your instructions. :)

  • sid

    Thx a lot, it helped me…

  • Anish Sharma

    hello sir, nice post, i have carried out the same steps but was not approved by Technorati, are there any other criteria for getting approved by them,my site is just 1 week old

    • azadshaikh

      Make sure you have some good number of live post. Also post quality matter.

      • Anish Sharma

        Thank you sir, at last i got my got my site reviewed..

  • BlogGirl

    Hi, thanks for sharing this, Actually I’m having a hard time with technorati. They really have a strict instructions. It is really hard to be accepted.

  • Sportswarscards

    Just wanted to say thanks for the guide. I’m awaiting final review with Technorati, now. People says it takes a long time to get reviewed, how long is a long time?

  • Garold

    yeah, its been almost one month now and technorati hasnt reviewed my blog yet, still pending, really annoying…

  • Popchic

    I have successful listed my blog to Technorati but I was wondering where can we got the chicklet button? Do the “fave button” was gone already? I’m looking for it on their site but I can’t find the fave button. Any idea?

  • Mae M.

    Thank you for this comprehensive post. Technorati is really very strict and you have to follow their instructions properly and be patient with their favorable response.

  • Vanhoutte

    Very useful instructions, my claim is awaiting final review and I hope this means my blog will start to appear within a month from now. But I’m not too hopeful since most of the other people who comment here have their blogs pending for over a month.

    Will post back once my blog got approved.
