If you have a blog then chances are you want to know how to increase your Technorati ranking. The Technorati rank is an important number for blogs and the higher yours is, the more your blog is worth. There are plenty of ways to increase your Technorati ranking but I am going to show you one here that is very simple and can be done in a matter of minutes.
First of all, let me tell you a little more about Technorati and how the Technorati ranking works…
Technorati is the top tracker for the blogosphere. At the time of writing this, they are tracking approximately 113 million blogs and counting. They keep track of who is linked in the blogosphere sort of like how Google ranks sites based on link popularity. The more blogs that link to your blog, the higher your Technorati ranking will be.
The blogs that link to you don’t have to be related to yours or of any sort of quality. And that is why this simple strategy for increasing your Technorati ranking works.
Everyone hates content scrapers. They lie, steal, and cheat to get content on their blogs. This is usually quite annoying and worthless to the person who originally posted the content. However, there is one way you can use content scrapers to your advantage to increase your Technorati rank. You can’t stop them so you might as well get something out of it.
If you go read my last post you will see that it has no place on this blog and doesn’t give any real useful information. You will also see that I wrote in red that there was a reason for the post that I would explain later. Well, that is what I am doing right now.
You see, content scrapers really like to scrape posts that are technical in nature because ads in those industries usually pay higher. So they can make more money from stealing that content than from most other blog posts.
Once again if you read that last post you will see that I put a link to one of my other blogs in the beginning of the post and another link towards the end of the post. Now, when the content scrapers steal my content they will be giving me links back to my blog. This will, in turn, help to increase my Technorati ranking!
Now I am at least getting something in return from those who steal my content. It’s actually a very good idea to put a link back to your blog in the first paragraph of all your blog posts. So, if scrapers steal any of your posts you will get a link back from them. It’s a heck of a lot better than not getting anything in return!
There you have it, a simple way to increase your Technorati ranking. You now know how to increase your Technorati rank. Of course, it’s always better to increase your Technorati rank through other legitimate bloggers actually linking to you but every little bit helps.
