Technorati is becoming one of the biggest players in blogging. Its a great tool for ranking one site against anther and its also a search engine of content. Before I make a post I do a quick search on Technorati and see who else has written about it. After I make a post I search Technorati for other blogs that might benefit from my content and posts comments on there blogs.
Technorati has a neat feature where you can add blogs to your favorite list, it generates a single RSS feed of all the posts and its great for building good back links. Some people got it in there mind that they could make a viral cross linking scheme to build your fave count in Technorati.
