    1. Hey Jorgen its nice to see you again. Ya it’s true, Technorati verification system is too slow.
      I had a look at your blog it is better than mine, very neat and clean. I will be doing some graphic work after my semester exam. Thanks for leaving you experience with Technorati here.

  1. Generally I do not post on blogs, but I would love to mention that this post extremely forced me to try and do therefore! really nice post. thanks

    1. Thanks for comments, yes technorati are too slow when it comes to manual reviews. We are working on some really good looking design for our blog. Also we will be soon coming up with many new features. Stay connected.

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

    1. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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?
    Thanks

    1. 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.

  5. 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:

    1. 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.

  6. 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:

    1. 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:

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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

    1. 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

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

  12. 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.

  13. 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

    Andy

    1. 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 http://getsatisfaction.com/technorati 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.

      1. 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

        Andy

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

          http://technorati.com/blogs/www.internetgeeks.org

          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.

          1. 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

  14. 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

    Andy

  15. 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.

  16. 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…?

    1. Hi,

      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.

  17. 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!

  18. 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!

  19. 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?

  20. 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.

  21. 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.
    Regards
