    I listed and claimed both of my blogs at Tecnorati a long time ago. (http://addmoms.com and http://addstudent.com). 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. :)

  • Garold

  • 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?

    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.
