I was doing one of my random trawls through Technorati (I’ve hit the top 50,000 by the way, woohoo!) instead of working and saw that they may have a few bugs to work out with their new-look site. For those of you who don’t keep track of things (99.9% of the human population) Technorati revamped their site recently giving it a sleeker look and feel and changing a few of their features. Broadly I think the changes are good although I’m still getting used to a few of them.
I did a search for new posts on Google and got the following result:
I don’t wish to suggest that the blogosphere is completely unoriginal but how many posts relating to Google do you think appear every day? I’m guessing more than zero. This happened a couple of times in a row then it started working and I got a more realistic 320,000 hits. I guess you can’t make big changes without experiencing a few teething problems.

Yeah, Technorati has been sucking donkey balls lately. Half my incoming links don’t show up and then suddenly a link from months ago will appear. And it’s become useless to track conversations in the blogosphere. Oh well. Too bad, I really liked Technorati. What’s next?
That’s the fun part isn’t it? Someone could come along and wipe out Technorati in an eyeblink. It must be ulcer inducing to head up a “web 2.0” company.
Instead of wasting that money on revamping the site, it should have been better spent on fixing their internal problems. 😈
New interface of Technorati looks good.
