Technorati's catching up to Google's speed

Stephen Baker

For anyone who suffered Technorati's sludgy service last summer, David Sifry's boast that Technorati has caught to Google speed is welcome news. (From Inside Google). Sifry posts an interesting chart comparing the blog search engines. I was surprised to see that Bloglines is also getting speedy.

Sifry also points to the new Technorati mini, a small window that searches "obsessively" every 60 seconds. I'm predicting that lots of bloggers will plug in their urls--and that other search engines will come up with similar services within weeks.

Dear Blogspotting,

You may not realize it but you are my "Blog God-Parents". I was reading Business Week on a trip to Arizona back in the summer and caught your article on "Blogs will Change your Business".

You caught my attention and made me a believer!

I was excited because I saw the blog as an interactive medium for me and my clients and also became convinced that once the business community recognized this power this could and will have a postitve transformative effect for the client to communicate with business.

I am six months into my blog journey and have managed to garner about 100 visits a day. I have an idea of the direction I want my blog to take and now realize that I need some help.

I put out a "call for help" on my blog but because of my limited readership it fell upon deaf ears.

Here is a link to my "call for help": http://blog.pacesettermortgage.com/2005/11/pacesetter_mort.html.

There are certainly a few very successful "high profile" blogs and I have also witnessed that many of the blogs seem to be an extension of chat rooms. By that I mean that most of the traffic is from Blogger to Blogger.

My journey is to take my message and service directly to the consumer. I will call my blog a success when I can relay timely information to the consumer in a way that helps them better their lives and also creates an easy and effective way for them to ACT.

When the small business entrepreneur sees that results and better service can be achieved with a blog, a "perfect storm" will occur so fast the medium won't know what hit it.

I want to be in front of that curve!

Any suggestions?
