Sorry Robert, but Technorati is broken

Robert Scoble: If I were in Bill Gates' office right now wondering how I'd deal with Google, one of my first proposals would be to take a deep look at why Technorati is succeeding in the marketplace on Google's home turf: search.

Randy: I really wonder sometime whether Robert even uses Technorati. He always talks like it's the greatest thing, but I fail to see what he's seeing. So today, I did a search for Scoble's blog on Technorati.

http://www.technorati.com/search/scobleizer.wordpress.com

  1. The first result was a blogroll sidebar hit.
    http://allpointsnorth.co.uk/
  2. The second result was a self referential link.
    http://www.technorati.com/search/scobleizer.wordpress.com

Ouch! Anyhow, I'm not gonna lie and say Technorati does nothing, the results from there were much better, although still suspect. But, it's plain to see that Robert Scoble wears pink glasses when using Technorati.

I also posted similar comments on Robert's blog.

Update: My comment on Robert's blog seems to have disappeared. Unsure why!

Hmmm... I don't disagree with you but when I clicked your search link I saw an entry from Robert that was 20 minutes ago.

I wonder if he pings technorati? I get better results for my blog when I do.

Scott,
I don't know for a fact if he pings Technorati, but I'm pretty sure he does.

Randy
Actually I'm trying an experiment right now for grins. I posted, pinged both t-rati and Ice Rocket and I'll see what happens.
