First, I'd like to thank you all for letting me join your class and for being so welcoming. Second, I'll tell you about a problem I'm having and hopefully you can help!
Technorati seems like a pretty useful tool, so I've registered and linked to it from my site. But, at the same time, I don't really get Technorati and their help section is almost nonexistent.
I'll start with the most basic question. Could someone please give me a general overview of the tags? What exactly are they used for and how you can get the most benefit out of them? And how do you attach (right word?) tags to individual posts, as opposed to your whole blog?
Now for the more complex stuff: Technorati does not seem to be working for my site in its advertised capacity at all. That is, it's just not tracking blogs that link to mine. I know of several sites that have links to mine, but the only things that ever come up on a Technorati search are two links that are six months old (one from a friend's site, one that is utterly unrecognizable).
My guess is that some piece of code (either in my own template or on something that I filled out on Technorati) is incorrect. But I'm not a coder--I'm a writer and a sometime cook. I do fairly well with code as long as the stuff is translated and the rules are explained to me like those of any other language.
Any ideas? Could someone help?
