    Hey, became nervous after reading the comments (odd ones), but registered in (fingers crossed). Tried for the first time in any of the directories. But slightly confused with the feeds issues. Searching for the solution.
    BTW thanks for the help.

      If you have claimed your blog successfully by putting up the token… All you need is to wait for a while.. Sometime it takes little than longer… And it’s worth waiting.. Hope you get your blog approved on Technorati soon..

    * We could not verify ownership of your blog.
    A link back, widget or meta-tag is required to verify site ownership.

    Please help me…thanks…

    Currently Technorati is only useful as a link building tool…Look at the top authority sites, visit these sites, comment and make a link. Or do a link exchange with these sites.

    In all other sense, Technorati is useless. Technorati team doesn’t do anything to improve the situation. I cannot even change the Blog name for last one year. Update site information hasn’t been working for over an year..

  10. rahul solanki says

    Dear harsh i too submitted my blog on 30 december 2010 but till not is the message i get in my technorati account.Dec 30, 2010. We have successfully crawled your blog and found the claim token, and your claim is now awaiting review.

    please tell me what to do

  11. Vivek Parmar says

    initially, newbie find problem while submitting their blog to techorati, one disadvanatage is that when you have lots of post and a quite good amount of visitors, then publishing a test post is not a nice idea. but for verification process you have to publish a test post

  12. Isha Singh says

    i submitted in technorati before but got some issue with feeds. so, has submitted again and waiting for their approval.

  13. Ileane says

    Hey Harsh, It seems like it’s taking forever for Technorati to approve my daughter’s blog submission. It was much faster when I submitted mine. I wonder if that’s because she has a fashion blog.

    I made one mistake when I submitted my blog though. I created a new post with the claim code. It was a little embarrassing to see all of the auto-tweets go out called Technorati Claim. :(

    • says

      Heane you could have added that claim token in any of the new post… Though I agree this days, Technorati is taking ages to approve any blog.. Hope they will speed up the process in future..

    • Elizabeth says

      The truth is that it could even take months for the claim to be approved considering the current state of Technorati.Submitting a new post is ok. or editing your last post and adding the code is also fine.
