Claiming your blog through Technorati allows you to use Technorati services to increase your blog’s visibility.

To begin claiming your blog, you will first need to go to Technorati.com and sign up for an account.

via Technorati « Support — WordPress.com.

I have to say I’m a little confused about whether I need to do anything special to tag and ping my WordPress blogs to maximize site traffic (See last entered post for more info on tags and pings.)

Some of the research I did made it sound like when you post a blog on WordPress, they already send out tags (and/or pings?) to the search engines. But I did find the WordPress support page above which gives instructions on how to claim your blog through Technorati, so maybe whatever WordPress does, it’s not the same thing.

So I have followed the steps they gave me, but unfortunately, as of this writing, have not been able to complete the process. Technorati has apparently changed their process somewhat because instead of getting the prompts shown in the link above, I got the one below which simply says they will get in touch with me to complete my claim.

So I will wait to hear from them and then keep an eye on my stats and report back here as to whether anything seems to have changed. Hopefully by this time next week, I will see some results.
