Technorati Redesign

Technorati has come out of beta and has a new look to boot. Lots of other blogs are talking about the Technorati redesign. There are a lot of sites out there taking about how nice it looks - have they actually used it or just loaded the page? It seems to be badly broken.

Searches haven't worked since yesterday and the link to profiles just stopped working. I needed to go and get some new code. Not a huge problem but it would be nice if they could have let users know that the links they have back to Technorati are useless. Oh and New Links was no longer registered as belonging to anyone - I had to reclaim it. And now I can't log in at all. At least when Blogger rolled out their redeisgn it came with loads of new features and took a while to settle down. Technorati seems to have introduced no new features just a new skin so what's their excuse?

Still not to worry - it looks nice.

Spot on. The damn things drives me nuts.

It's a shame as Technorati is one of the better tools for checking linkback.

Did you have to reclaim your blog too?

BykerSink said...

Yup.

Looks like they've screwed up big time - haven't seen anyone else complaining though. Never mind the data, look at the pretty colours. Or something.

I see you've WIP'd your name Flip! If you end up sticking this user count stuff on flophouse and get stuck give me a shout. I don't speak Dutch either but having been through it once it should be easy enough to do again.

You'd have thought they'd have backed up before going live

You would have thought so - but the sheer amount of 'technorati is lush' and the excitement of launching their stupid politics.technorati crap (what was the matter with just pointing people at some tailored political watchlists? ie within the framework of their existing site) flying about atm they probably think everything is alright.
