Sifry’s Alerts: Technorati Performance Improvement Update: look at the bottom of that post: “Technorati Tags: blogosphere, blogs, blogsearch, competition, feedback, givingthanks, google, gratitude, scaling, search, search engine, statistics, stats, technorati, wow, yahoo”
Those are not tags David uses for himself to find his own post back. Those are tags to make sure this post shows up high in Technorati tags. And they feel like the old keyword stuffing to me. Does the way Technorati handles tags encourage tag spam? I’ve always felt that with tags, it’s not about having a lot of them. It’s about having a small amount within a social circle that’s useful. When I see tag stuffing like in this post, sometimes I wonder: are tags going the way of the meta keyword html tag?
