Technorati has introduced lot of changes to their site, its no more a blog search engine, we can call it as social media search. Technorati CEO Dave Sirfy says now users come to technorati for not only blogs but also to find other social media, in response to these changes in user needs technorati now provides searching all user generating content.
Technorati has unified search, previously one has to search for blog posts, key words by selecting options, now you can search everything in one single search.
This is being facilitated by the phenomenon of tags and tagging, which helps to unify and organize the rapidly expanding world of user-generated media. As more and more publishing tools support the use of tags, the better we are able to assemble collections of social media based on the interests of our users.
The world has changed. This isn’t just about blogs anymore. And to be of service to you, we have changed too.
For the ones that don’t like all the stuff in one search or you just want to search only blogs, they have added a new location search.technorati.com with a nice and clean interface. Look at the above pic
Other things you will notice are scrolling of the popular tags on top of the home page. All the Technorati widgets available are categorized like browser buttons, blog widgets etc.
