Technorati rank: 243,828

Technorati provides various tools for people interested in blogs. Technorati’s main feature is its search capability, and the site indexes more than 23.5 million blogs on the Internet. By “claiming” a blog (Technorati verifies that you’re the blog owner), you get access to more tools, including the ability to apply tags to your blog.

What’s interesting is that Technorati also displays your blog’s rank in the blogosphere, based on the number of incoming links to your blog. As of December 21, 2005, “Dunechaser’s Blocklog” is ranked 243,828. Out of 23.5 million, that’s not too shabby! Woo hoo!
