Adding Technorati Tags?

I don’t know how I stumbled onto No Title, but I’m glad I did. It seems that there’s a simple way to add Technorati Tags onto posts. I’m currently using Post tags 1.0 by Sam Angove, but I’ve got so many categories on my site, there’s too much to look through and maintain. Guess how many I count within my WordPress Control Panel? 371! (Don’t worry, I didn’t count them by hand. I copied and pasted all the categories into a text document, then selected all of the rows for numbering.)

Perhaps I could go back to using general categories, then with these tools I could narrow the general content of the post? Any thoughts on this?

  1. One benefit with UTW over the Greasemonkey method (at least the one the fellow at No Title is using), is that with UTW, you can make the tag links link to a ‘tag archive’ for your site. Technorati still indexes your site with those tags, but the tags you use will also be keeping users on your site.

    Lorelle at lorelle.wordpress.com made a point about this. Getting indexed by Technorati is good. Sending free traffic to Technorati with your tag links isn’t so good. 🙂
