Technorati teams up with the Associated Press
This is good news for bloggers who will get exposure and ultimately more traffic to their blog sites. I imagine this will work much like similar services such as the Washington Post’s “Who’s Blogging” feature. Let’s hope that Technorati gets the kinks out of its notoriously buggy indexing to make the service useful.
A press release today says Technorati and the Associated Press have teamed up to deliver up-to-the-minute blog posts to AP online news stories:
When readers visit an AP member Web site that uses AP Hosted Custom News, they will see a module featuring the “Top Five Most Blogged About” AP articles. This module is dynamically powered by Technorati and within it, the reader will see links to a Technorati page that guides them to recent blog posts about that specific AP article. Additionally, when readers click on an AP article, Technorati will deliver “Who’s Blogging About That Article,” a listing of blog names with the date and time recent posts were made. The new functionality will be available to the more than 440 AP member Web sites in the United States that take AP’s Hosted Custom News.
