Technorati started rolling some enhancements to its blog portal, the first of these enhancements is the Technorati topics. Topics gives Technorati fans a new way of reading the millions of blog posts that Technorati collections, by five topical categories, entertainment, technology, Politics, Business and Life. These five topics are obviously the most sought after topics in blog posts. Technorati topics presents the most recent blog posts and updates the listings on a regular and timely basis. Thus ensuring that readers get up-to-date information from these blogs.
In presenting the blog posts, Technorati topics considers several factors:
- Technorati authority,
- frequency of posting,
- use of relevant tags,
- links to related subject matter,
- general topicality
Technorati topics is a good improvement actually. Being a librarian by profession, I am obliged to say that anything that is classified into topical categories is a useful thing. Yes, Technorati Topics is a good one.
