Thanks for the critique! We're focues 100% on providing a fast, accurate service that keep track of the realtime web, and we've been working really hard on both the backend and frontend changes to make the tool more responsive to you.

As for the pictures, actually they aren't related to VoteLinks – they come up if you are a Technorati member who has claimed your blog. It's absolutely free, and you can get more info about your blog, like your real picture next to your blog in search results, your blog rank, and we're rolling out additional member features in the coming months.

As for votelinks, it is still frankly an experiment, and we've set up a page where you can see vote links aggregated over time: http://www.technorati.com/live/votes.html

Thanks again for using Technorati, and thanks for your feedback!!!

I have tried again and again to claim my blog (Google Blogoscoped) but it never worked. I always had to include some HTML snippet and wait some hours, which I both did, but it still didn't show my blog as being activated in Technorati. Oh well, I guess I will try again one day.

Thanks for your comments, and thanks for clarifying the smiling faces.

I have the exact same problem, Philipp. My profile photo only stays for about one page refresh, too – then it's gone. Annoying. I'm actually curious to know if there are any good introductions to Technorati or tutorials or examples of ways people use it. Seems fairly useless, to be blunt.

JJ, you are right. There's not a lot of Technorati tutorials, e.g. using their API. The best place to start probably is the Technorati Wiki at http://developers.technorati.com/wiki/

Philipp, I'm going to ask one of our developers to look into the issue you have with claiming – clearly there's some bugs there, so we'll work with you to get it fixed.

And regarding your comments on tutorials and the API, I apologise that we don't have better documentation on it yet – the best place for documentation right now is the developer's wiki at http://developers.technorati.com/ but your point is well taken; we'll be putting up more info on the site soon, especially as it relates to the developer's contest we're having. We're working hard, but we're still only 12 people working our butts off ;-)

Thanks again for the feedback.
