Technorati Help: Tags

Technorati Help: Tags

This post is for newbies! Technorati is a blog search engine. If you tag (assign categories) to a blog post, people can find your blog in Technorati. See Tim Lauer's post below as well as David Warlick's post preceding that.

For instance, if everyone that writes about IL-TCE in their own blog added the tag "il-tce" to the post, then interested people could search on Technorati using the term "il-tce and find all relevant posts. You can add multiple tags to posts, by the way. Neato! So to repeat David's suggestion, use the il-tce tag if you blog about the conference!

After reading Tim's post, I was curious as to how one actually put a Technorati tag in their blog. Click on the link above for instructions from Technorati. Perhaps the tagging gurus at IL-TCE will explain this better this week!

In the meantime, here's a homework assignment for you:

Visit Technorati and do a search using the tag "teachers" (or another tag of your choice) and see what you come up with!

Here is the link on Technorati to the page that collects all the IL-TCE tagged pages...
http://www.technorati.com/tag/il-tce

Technorati also generates an RSS feed for this page which is here:
http://feeds.technorati.com/feed/posts/tag/il-tce

I use an authoring tool called Ecto to post to my weblogs and it has a nice interface that allows me to easily add the tags.

Also if you are posting images to Flickr, you will want to also tag them with the IL-TCE tag...
