If you haven’t heard of Technorati before, it’s primarily a search engine that indexes blogs, vlogs (video blogs), and podcasts.
One of the features of Technorati is the ability to “claim” blogs that belong to you. Once claimed, a blog will be attached to your user profile. Having just joined Technorati, I decided to claim my blog as my user profile was looking a little sparse.
The process of claiming a post on Technorati involves a confirmation step to make sure you in fact own the blog you are claiming. They’ve implemented their confirmation by requiring the blog owner to create a new post containing a confirmation code.
My Technorati claim code: FYRUBHGAJGZ3
Technorati will then check the blog for the a post containing the code as well as the blog’s RSS feed. Once the code is found, Technorati can be reasonably assured that the user is somehow associated with the blog.
