Blog searching tools

 

Technorati - Blog Tracking

Technorati brings you what’s happening on the web right now. Technorati lets you search sites that update with extreme frequency, like blogs and news. Unlike other engines, our results are individual posts (portions of pages), so they’re more specific. Search results are listed newest to oldest, and are often only minutes old! A Watchlist is your one stop to see what people are saying about the sites and subjects you care about. Just add a few searches and we’ll monitor them on your watchlist page in real time. Claiming your blog in Technorati allows you to customize the way it’s presented here. You can add your photo and description, include it in Blog Finder, and even add cool Technorati tools to your site.
