If you have just start blogging, technorati might be a great place to let people discover your blog. This is incredibly helpful for new born blogs as it usually takes weeks or months for new blog to be indexed by major search engine.

In fact, wikipedia defines technorati as a search engine. This is what Wikipedia wrote about technorati at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technorati

Technorati is an Internet search engine for searching blogs, competing with Google and Yahoo. As of June 2008, Technorati indexes 112.8 million blogs and over 250 million pieces of tagged social media. The name Technorati is a portmanteau, pointing to the technological version of literati, or intellectuals.

While wikipedia keeps the technorati definition as a blog search engine, technorati now introduces itself as a full service media company. This is, however, achieved after some acquisitions of online ad company and blogger communities. >> ambil quotes dari technorati media
