I Use Technorati For One Thing Only: Brand Tracking

Today Technorati “relaunched” with a bunch of new stuff I guess. Like Allen, I’m still trying to figure out exactly what that stuff is and what problems it solves for me.

It seems they tried really hard today to explain what they’re doing, but they broke the cardinal rule of marketing. Which is…

Don’t tell me what you do, tell me how what you do solves problems for me.

Here’s how I use Technorati.

I log in and type my brand name and search for people mentioning my brand.

That’s it.

Am I missing something? Is there something else you can really do with it?

What problem does it solve for me?

And what’s with them ignoring video?

Actual Amazon.com Reviews...

"Jim Kukral's new book pisses me off. And not because it's a lousy book, and reading it was a waste of time. His book pisses me off because in it, Jim interviews really, really, successful people who ARE living their dreams. And, I'm jealous. I want a turn, you know?" - Joel Libava

"I loved this short, informative, encouraging e-book. The stories of others who have been successful building a business around their lifestyle is a wake up call for me to get off my butt and do it! Thanks Jim for this book!" - Sienna

"I was having kind of a blah day, I read this book, now I feel like a million bucks and have renewed inspiration to go make a million bucks." - Eric Woodard

    I feel the same way. Its a good way to track who has been linking to you. As you know, the latest links to your blog used to be shown in your wordpress panel. I dont know if wordpress made a deal with google and I do like checking google blog search for links etc too however WordPress should have kept the links from technorati as well.

    I dont use technorati for aynthing else. If im searching for something specific I much prefer using stumbleupon :)
