Now you can add tags to your Favorites! To create tags, go to the Blogs by Favorites tab and click on the “edit tags” link next to the tag icon, underneath the blog title. Enter as many tags as you like; separate each tag with a space, and if you want to use more than one word as one tag, use double quotes around the phrase. When you are done typing out all your tags, click “Add tags.”
Clicking on a tag in the left-hand list will show you all the recent posts from blogs that you have tagged with that term. To get back to your general Favorites page, click on the My Favorites link in the page title.
You know you can see the Top 100 Blogs as measured by the most links from unique sources in the last six months. Now that we've got Favorites going, we have a new measure of popularity. So now you can see the Top 100 Most Favorited Blogs, too! This is a great way to find interesting new blogs for Your Favorites.
We've also put a few more "Featured Favorites" into rotation today. Check them out for more great examples of what you can do with Technorati Favorites.
The number of blogs doubles every five months. As I'm writing this, Technorati is tracking 28.4 million blogs. That's a whole lot of voices. Here at Technorati, we want to make the world of weblogs accessible, searchable, and fun for everyone to explore. Today we're taking another step in that direction with a brand new feature: Technorati Favorites.
It's really very simple. Just tell us who your favorite bloggers are and you'll get a custom page that lets you monitor, search, and share your Favorites!
Can't wait? Go give it a try! For the curious, read on for more details.
We've made it as easy as possible to add blogs to your Favorites. All over Technorati, just click the star icon () to add that blog to your favorites. Looking for good blogs on a certain topic? Check out Blog Finder and add blogs from there!
There's also a bookmarklet you can take with you, so you can add to your favorites wherever you browse (get it on the Favorites Help page). And if you use another subscription tool or service, you can export your subscriptions and import them using the Favorites Importer!
Once you've got some favorites, you'll see the most recent posts from them, newest to oldest, as they happen. If you prefer RSS, don't worry, it's available.
Got your own blog? Wanna make it easy for Technorati members to mark is as a favorite? Just use one of these handy buttons! You can even display recent posts from your Favorites on your own blog with the Favorites Widget.
But the best part is that now you can search just your favorite blogs. The second tab on every keyword search result is now "Your Favorites" - click it to search just your favorite blogs.
Finally, Technorati Favorites are for sharing! Note that everyone has a public favorites page (here's mine). You can share yours with your friends with the link at the top of your Favorites page.
To help us kick off this new feature, we asked some prominent bloggers what their favorite blogs are, and they obliged! So check out what's new in these people's favorite blogs:
Thanks to these four for helping us kick off Technorati Favorites, and stay tuned - we'll be adding more soon!
