Trying to claim a blog on Technorati

Today I was reading up on some tips and tricks for increasing inbound links to our site. I came across a good article (I have to go back and find the site, I will repost the link when I do), and one of the many tips talked about getting listed on Technorati.

I knew of Technorati but could not say that I was intimately familiar with how it works. After digging around a bit, I found that in order to get listed in their blog directory, you have to first “claim” the blog … fair enough. Wouldn’t want another entity posing as us now, would we??

To claim a blog, you have to first create a technorati account. Turns out Daniele already had one, but I went ahead and created a new one – a quick and painless process. Then you enter some info about your blog, submit it, and wait for something to happen magically … or so I thought. Actually, you have to go back to your profile page and click on the “Check Claim” button to continue the submission process.

When you click on the button, you are given a short code that is to be posted to the blog for verification. This part was not clearly explained in the previous step (either that or I just completely missed it), so good thing I decided to poke around a bit instead of just sitting back and waiting.

So now, that’s where I’m at. Here is the short code they gave me: 5YW6D43RSYDE

Let’s see what happens next!
