In my continuing quest to evaluate which widgets to delete from my site, I turn my attention to Technorati.

If you don't know what Technorati is, you've probably been living under a rock for quite some time. This site tracks links to your site and has search functionality.

According to them:

"Currently tracking 112.8 million blogs and over 250 million pieces of tagged social media.

Technorati is the recognized authority on what's happening on the World Live Web, right now. The Live Web is the dynamic and always-updating portion of the Web. We search, surface, and organize blogs and the other forms of independent, user-generated content (photos, videos, voting, etc.) increasingly referred to as 'citizen media.'"

OK, so they track me, and everyone else. Aside from the ego boost I may get when I view my blog's "authority," what do they do for me? 10-12 visitors a day, that's what! Despite many internet 2.0 geeks trashing Technorati, I'll keep them!

I WILL be getting rid of the "What's my Blog Worth?" Technorati widget. I just think it's getting a tad egotistical to display it!
