After months of work and weeks of testing, the new updated version of technorati.com is released.
Three years ago, Technorati was incorporated and became a real company, moving out of the science project phase of its life. Much has happened since then.
While the company got a lot of positive feedback from bloggers about the core Technorati service, there was a problem that Technorati wasn’t of much use to people who are new to the live web. So they set about renovating the Technorati site to make it easier to use for all people, whether they regularly create stuff on the web or not.
At first Technorati continued to improve our core search technologies that index new information within minutes of being posted to the Web. They used visitor’s feedback – and redesigned the search results pages to include much less intrusive ads, more results above the fold, and better sorting options – including sorting by language, authority, and freshness. If you’re a blogger, you should notice that your blog is being counted much more regularly, and that your rankings and authority information is much more accurate and up-to-date.
Some part of this work is also to make things easier and more stable.
Second the company worked hard to make serendipitous discovery of interesting stuff easier and more intuitive. Discover section, drawing on a commonly understood newspaper metaphor, organizes the blogosphere into easily recognized categories, within which some of the most interesting recent posts are highlighted. Categories include news and tech, sports, business and life. If you want your posts included in the discover section, you’ll first want to claim your blogs and then configure them with information on the things you regularly write about.
