If you blogged about Stories of Strength you can add this Technorati tag (html is below) at the bottom of your post. It might help drive traffic to the site. I don't pretend to understand it, but tagged posts can be searched in Technorati and if there are a lot on the topic it can help attract attention. Maybe.

Couldn't hurt. I've tagged my blog and thought I'd share.

<a href="http://technorati.com/tag/stories_of_strength" rel="tag">stories of strength</a>

You rock, Dawno! This will coordinate better if we use the same tag, so thanks for posting this.

Wild timing. Mac just tried teaching me about this newfangled technowhozis thing. I stuck a tag in there!

So far when I go to 'stories+of+strength' in the tags area I just get my blog - but I don't get how it works either, maybe Mac can esplain...

I couldn't find anything in technorati under "stories of strength", but if I keyed in "storiesofstrength" -- it returns only one link which is this one:

Has someone organised for the site to have its own profile in Technorati too? This will speed things up a bit I think?

Jenna, be sure to go to http://technorati.com/ping and add your blog's URL there


jen.nifer, when I go to tags (http://technorati.com/tags/) and enter stories_of_strength or stories+of+strength I see my blog post titled "Beefy Bloomers" (yeah, I wish I had done something different now) as the first hit.

Ah I see. I was referring to the result that is returned in the general search field - rather than the tag search field...

We need more coverage in the blogiverse to get good returns on the general search I guess...

Guys! Get blogging!

Oh boy. What's that? (I am a blog-dummy.)

and got LOTS of hits...

Well, you need to put some HTML in the site template and then ping Technorati with the URL. I bet Mac or Richard or someone else much more techie than I could get your blog and the SOS site all set up with it.

The SOS site already pings Technorati every time there's a new blog post. I haven't set anything special up to cater for it beyond that, simply because I've never been convinced that most of these weblog listing/tagging sites actually do all that much for you unless you cater in up-to-the-minute news about particularly dramatic subjects.

(Bizarrely, one of the top results in Google isn't the site or a post about it, but rather a page in my Odeo account that I was using to try out a service called Talkr, and don't even remember making - a text to speech thing that sounds okay listened to directly, but disturbingly like Alvin and the Chipmunks on speed when played from the web...)
