How do you use the Technorati service? I've got my blog pinging the site and it talks about using a <tag=item></tag> but what goes in between the <tag> bits?
I tried putting <tag=marketing>Marketing</tag> but it did not turn it into a link.
I've tried some wp-plugins -- but I don't understand how they help.
Q1. Is technorati a manual process or automatic?
Q2. How do I add tags to a post easily, and simply?
Q3. Does technorati need pingbacks/trackbacks?
Q4. Does my blog page need a trackback link posted on the actual page?
I've never used technorati before and I hope you can help make me understand how to use it properly.
