Technorati is relaunched today with focus on the blogosphere. Recently launched topics feature is replaced with aggregator style pages. Frontpage shows the hot blog posts from the blogosphere and individual category pages show blog posts on nivhe topics. Technoratu calls this new improvement as Technorati Percolator.
Excerpts from Technorati Blog
The Technorati Percolator combs the sea of posts and other media flowing through our systems to find the ones that are emerging as significant at any given time.
Our primary goal with the Percolator is to highlight the significant things grabbing the blogosphere’s attention regardless of the blogger’s “A-list” or “Z-list” status. Our broader coverage should enable us to better serve the broader blogosphere.
Another interesting feature is Blogging Central which shows stats like top blogs, top favorited blogs and other stats.
It is nice to see Technorati to refocus on blogs, but lot of users have moved from Technorati to Google Blogsearch.

I cant even count the number of times they have relaunched after I started using it. 🙂
True, quite often they relaunch and say that they focus more on blogosphere
