How to increase your technorati authority or rank

Well, possibly your google page rank has been dropped to zero while you are doing reviews inside your blog and now you really looking for ways to increase your page rank. Besides google page rank, alexa rank , backlinks, there is another ranking method which is technorati rank. Most of the review sites rank their site based on alexa rank, technorati rank, backlinks. So if you ever aware of reviewing sites don't bother about page rank, look for technorati rank.

What is Technorati Rank
Understand about technorati authority or rank is important. Note that to appear a blog into technorati rank you need to register technorati.com and then you need to claim you blog indicating that you are the owner of the blog. It may seem very painful work as the site has lots of bug regarding claim and others, may be it is temporary glitch.

About your blog is claimed you can now see your technorati rank. Note that the rank depends on mainly how many other blogs in Technorati actually link back to your blog. It is not how many blogs link back to you, but how many blogs Technorati knows about that link back to yours.

However, it's rank also based upon the number of fans they have, the blog posting frequency, and other secret factors.

After you claim your blog, other users of Technorati will have the ability to add your blog to their favorites and adding tags to your blog which in turns will increase your rank. But now due to bugs this main feature seems not working. :-)

Why Technorati Authority or Rank is Important
Many bloggers and webmasters don't understand about the importance of technorati rank. But most of the advertisers in fact 95% of the review site look for techorati rank before advertising on your blog. They mark the star of a blog based on Alexa rank, backlinks and technorati ranks. So if you want to earn money by reviewing sites inside your blog technorati rank is important for you. However, If you don’t care about selling ads or links on your blog, then the Technorati rank is probably worthless to you. The high(good) technorati rank you have, the higher possibility of the amount you're paid for links or sponsored reviews.
