Technorati - What Have You Done For Me Lately?

In a word: Nothing.
But that’s going to change.
I’ve read over and over again on numerous sites how Technorati is the Google of blogs. Is this really the case? In my experience, not so much. So far I’ve seen about two hits from a Technorati search, compared to the bucketload of hits I’ve been getting from Google daily.
Why am I suddenly on a mission to get Technorati traffic? Well I’ll be honest, I keep seeing people talk about how they are getting big chunks of unique traffic from Technorati on a daily basis and frankly, I want a piece of that pie.
The other reason is more important. You shouldn’t rely on just one source of traffic. And if you are then it sure as hell better be Google.
Right now about half of my traffic comes from MyBlogLog. While this is a solid source at the moment I’m skeptical about it lasting in the long term, so I’m trying to plan ahead.
In any case who wouldn’t want another source of organic traffic?
I’m moving forward with the assumption that I’m doing something wrong my end. I’ve got a gameplan of sorts that I’m going to start putting in motion tomorrow, so I’ll report my results in about a weeks time. Hopefully I’ll have some good news to share.
If any of you are getting traffic from Technorati feel free to leave a comment. I’m sure everyone will be interested to know what it is you’re doing right.
