Technorati profile not updating goals of updating kids website
It's definitely an interesting time for them, I think.
As Dave says in his note, Technorati is a "revenue stage" company at this point, and a different stage calls for different leadership. I love the sense of mission, and the fast innovation.
Just a quick look at the reactions at Technorati shows some very interesting results.
Just yesterday, the contest got 7 – 8 more entrants as more and more people are blogging about the contest on their blogs. I’ll also help promote the contest so he reaches his minimum 50 entrants limit soon, although I’m sure he must have reached that mark already 😀 The post will also be visible on my Digital Point Profile in the Recent Blog Post Feed link, so hopefully a lot of new webmasters will be able to signup from there!
Today Dave Sifry announced (also here) that effective immediately he was stepping down as CEO of Technorati and turning over the reigns to the CFO, VP of Engineering and VP of Marketing while the organization continues its search for a new CEO.
Dave will now take on the role of Chairman of Technorati's Board of Directors.
Winner will be sent payment by Paypal so it is necessary that you have a Paypal account for this, to avoid any complications later on 🙂 Here’s what you have to do Simply copy and paste the following on your blog to be considered as an entrant to the contest. Some interesting facts This contest is an excellent idea for link baiting as it has spurred a lot of excitement among bloggers and website owners.
Over at Ashwin’s blog, you will find one crazy blog owner!! To enter just copy this text and paste it in your blog!! Here’s what I found out doing a quick search and checking on Technorati: People are entering the contest like crazy.
Given that absolutely anyone can set up a blog and start publishing, how do you sift through all the sites out there to understand what and who matters?Technorati was the first major site to really focus on searching blogs, but now of course Google and every other search site does that.Technorati's expanded its focus, but so have all the others.Technorati's attempts at Authority and Ranking have been way to help with that.
They will continue to be, but the other reality is that the space they are in, "search", is awfully crowded.
Best wishes to the Technorati team and to Dave for whatever comes next for both of them.
