Technorati Tags - What are they and how do they work?

Firstly lets get Technoratis defininition of what exactly a tag is!

Reference: http://www.technorati.com/help/tags.html


Think of a tag as a simple category name. People can categorize
their posts, photos, and links with any tag that makes sense.

You can tag a post with anything you like, you can even make up a tag! To view blog posts,that have the tag of "million dollar experiment" you can just go to this link http://technorati.com/tag/million%20dollar%20experiment and see them all.

You can view the most popular tags at http://technorati.com/tag/pop I see today the most popular tag is microsoft, followed by Iraq? Two subjects that seem to be forever talked about.

Great thats what a tag is, now how can we use this to make our posts popular and should we bother?

Well the good news for Blogger Beta users like myself is that by adding labels to our Posts, Technorati will automatically pick them up and tag them.

It is certainly worth the small amount of effort because it makes your site easier to find in the blogosphere.

The only downside to this whole process is that because effectively anyone can tag a post as anything, and it does not always mean that the tag is relevant to the content of the post. However readers will quickly get sick of sites that do not appropriately tag their content.

There is also the possibility of confusion, where one person may feel that a tag is relevant and another may not, however it is hard to make everybody happy all of the time.

Now I have to try and figure out what to tag this post with.....
