How to TAG with Technorati

Tagging your blog posts with Technorati is a very important tool to publish your information such that others can find your articles when they search on keywords. Technorati will ping your blog on demand once you have set it up, and they will monitor the tags you create such that their searchers or readers can find relative information.

TAGing is still a little foreign to some people new to blogging. Its still a little foreign to me, but I'd like to share with you what I've learned so far.

1. As you write articles pay attention to the key concepts in the article. make sure these concepts are expressed in the title of your article if possible and then 'TAG' them. (explain how in a second)

2. The Tag will alert Technorati where your information is and it will allow your readers to leap to Technorati to get more information on that same topic. Similarly, people leaping from other sites to Technorati may find your Tag back to Technorati and come in to visit your blog article

3. How to create a TAG . Technorati's help section

4. If you have written about a topic yourself in the past, you can Tag your own older articles or topics.
