Technorati assigns tags to every blog post. Technorati owns a special language code for tagging posts.

In addition to tags that you add to your posts, Technorati will use the categories you post were associated with as tags.
After you have posted comments on a blog, you need to alert Technorati about this. In order to do this, you must ping Technorati or use Ping-O-Matic service that automatically does the work for you.
By posting comments on other people’s blogs, you can get yourself known. For this, you must find proper blogs for posting your comments. The area in which you have expert knowledge needs to be taken care of for writing blog. You can add your website address to preferred RSS reader so that you are alerted whenever a new blog posting occurs. This way, you can immediately go to that blog and post your comment.
Technorati includes an interesting feature which is called WTF where bloggers come together about explaining which topis are hot right now. Write a good comment on a WTF topic that needs no explanation as well as it links to your blog.
