If you have your own blog and want to make money online with it (paid posts, for example) and if your blog haven’t claimed at Technorati yet, than you should do this right now. Technorati can bring your blog a fair ammount of traffic if used properly. All you have to do is to register, login and finally add your blog information.
Once you have claimed your blog you will get a “Rank”. The rank depends on how many other blogs link to your blog and your content (of course, to increase you Technorati rank, also the blogs that link to yours have to be claimed at Technorati by their owners).
Technorati rank is considered important by a lot of websites (first of all Technorati itself). Let’s take ReviewMe.com as an example, the price you will recieve for a paid review on your blog is calculated using 3 factors: Technorati rank, Alexa rank and estimated RSS. Even if you have a low value for “estimated RSS” and a low “Alexa rank”, you could increase your Technorati rank to force “Reviewme” to increase the price for a paid review on your blog.
Technorati rank is also one of the factors taken in consideration to calculate the Page Strength of a website. These are only a few examples, many other websites give importance to it and that’s why I will show you some very easy ways on how to boost your ranking.
1) This is the most logical method to increase your Technorati rank: content.
All you have to do is to keep your blog updated with interesting content and people will start to link to it. Of course the blogs that will link to your content needs to be part of the Technorati community. Links from blogs that were not claimed in Technorati by their respective owners are still important but they won’t help you in your mission to rank high in Technorati.
2) Buy blog posts (from my blog for example :).
Recently I have wrote an article about Blog Networks. Buying a blog post in a blog network is not very expensive and will give you great results. Owners of blog networks usually claim all their blogs in Technorati because they know that this makes their network much more valuable to future buyers. By buying a blog post in one of those networks you will get a backlink to your blog from 100, or maybe more, blogs that were all claimed in Technorati. If you really want to boost your Technorati rank then get as many as possible different blog posts from different (and Technorati claimed) blogs.
3) Sponsor (or create) a WordPress theme.
WordPress is the best blog engine available and that’s why millions of people use it. By sponsoring a WordPress theme you will increase your rank everytime a Technorati claimed blog will install the template you have sponsored (or created). This is actually the fastest way to increase your rank. Of course, the theme you are going to sponsor has to be a nice and professional looking theme that will be downloaded by hundred of WordPress users. It is useless to sponsor (or create) an ugly WordPress theme that nobody is going to use.
This is another simple way to increase your ranking (I’ve never used it, but it’s working): contact blog owners that claimed their blog in Technorati and ask them to link to a page of your content and you will do the same. This will increase your rank and also the rank of the blog you linked to.
The fastest method to increase you rank is to buy blog posts, but consider that in this case you are going to pay real money to increase yor ranking. The easiest way is to sponsor or create a nice looking WordPress theme that will be used by hundreds or maybe thousands of bloggers.
