    I’ve just spent half an hour on a Saturday evening making Nature Network blogs “favourites” on Technorati – thanks to your post!
    (I am pretty tired actually, having been up since 4 am taking daughter to school trip meeting-point, so I needed something mindless to do!)

  2. Richard P. Grant says:

    Aw, feel the love.

  3. Bob O'Hara says:

    I guess I should thank whoever put the little button up that sent us to Technorati to register.
    Now I’ve got to go and add a few favourites…

    Interesting. I got smart quotes.

  6. Bob O'Hara says:

    So have I. They have even combed their hair, and put a parting in it:
    ” ”

    What precisely is a technorati? Can I play it on my betamax?

  8. Bob O'Hara says:

    It’s a technoratus, of course.

  9. Maxine Clarke says:

    It is the main blog index website, Henry – though many think it has had its day (Google blog search gets more traffic now), it used to be “all powerful” in the blogosphere as it ranks blogs by its algorithm of linkiness.
    Whether or not Technorati is old hat, it seems to me that the thing to do is for all NN bloggers to make all other NN blogs “favourites” as this will up the Technorati ranking and general visibility of N Network.
    Matt posted a while back about setting up NN on Technorati, that may be the URL Richard has provided above but it isn’t displaying properly in my browser so can’t tell you for sure.

  10. Henry Gee says:

    How do I embed html in a blog post so that the technorati spiders can spot my blog? I have hung lavender from the windows; chained Beelzebun Demon Bunny of DOOM to the radiator; and chalked a pentagram on the floor – but nothing has happened. Nothing. Not even the tiniest hint of ectoplasm. I must say it’s all most disappointing.

  11. Bob O'Hara says:

    Henry, it seems they have. They haven’t seen your lost t-shirts (but then, neither have you), so perhaps they were watching until the lavender put them off.

  12. Henry Gee says:

    Aha – so I see. But it’s all about ‘laying a claim’ to your blog, and the technoratuses ask one to insert a slug of code into a blog post, and that’s what I don’t understand.

  13. Bronwen Dekker says:

    Henry: For me the slug of code was:
    (less than sign)a href=”http://technorati.com/claim/f3qpwhvx7b” rel=”me”>Technorati Profile
    where (less then sign) is actually just

  14. Henry Gee says:

    Thanks Bronwen – I think that might do the trick. Now then. Do I cut the blue wire, or the red wire? Thinks. The blue one. No, perhaps it’s the red one. On the other hand, it could still be the blue one. Or was it the red one? Or was it both at once? And how did that green wire get here? How do I work this? Who put the benzedrine in Mrs Murphy’s ovaltine? What becomes of the broken-hearted? Why do fools fall in love? Who put the bop in the bop-shoowop-shoowop? Ah, I remember now. It’s the blue one.

  15. Henry Gee says:

    It was the blue wire. God, that was close.

  16. Graham Steel says:

    I used the Tartan wire and got this

  17. Henry Gee says:

    You were very brave. I didn’t mention that I had two tartan wires – one was Campbell and the other MacLeod. As I’m a distant relation of the McGoldstein clan, I thought they were best left untouched.

  18. Graham Steel says:

    “Two” – blimey,
    Literally shocking….
    Spent the afternoon at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum
    Having resided here for > 10 years now, I have at last found out the History of these here parts.
    I be much more interested in Geo that Hist you see but what I learned today was most fascinating.

  19. Cath Ennis says:

    Ah Graham, you’re making me nostalgic. I used to live by the Botanic Gardens and my flatmate and I spent many a Sunday doing the riverside walk through to Kelvingrove, having a quick look around the museum, and going for a pint and some chips on the Byres Road. Good times…
