Technorati launches topics section
But since Technorati indexes millions of sites, they have a lot of blogs to choose from. So whether you pick entertainment, politics, technology, sports, business, or life, there are a ton of blogs posting updates every few seconds. And so the Technorati page updates every few seconds.
While some have argued that you're better off going to a site like Techmeme that organizes the day's hot stories by showing blog posts in order of importance and not just chronologically, we think Technorati's system could be useful. There's a good reason Techmeme is more likely to favor big blogs like Engadget and Lifehacker. Those are sites that a lot of other bloggers link to. But there are thousands of other great sites out there that you've never heard of. And it would be great to get a different perspective on the news occasionally.
But Technorati either needs to slow down the scroll or delete some of the blogs to make its new home page more readable. Blogs are reportedly chosen for each category based on their Technorati "authority," post frequency, and use of tags related to each topic.
