How to Claim Your Flickr Account on Technorati

I explained the other day how you can
claim
your Twitter account on Technorati, giving you an easy way to track who’s
linking to your Tweets. It turns out the same thing can be done with your Flickr
account, allowing you to track who’s blogging about your photos.

Here is how you do it.

1. Click the
“Claim
Your Blog” link on the Technorati homepage.

2. Enter your Flickr Photo page (example):
http://flickr.com/photos/edkohler/

3. Choose Post Claim

Use Post Claim Option

4. Grab just the URL of the post claim URL and add that to the description of
one of your most recent photos. For example, if it said you should post Technorati
Profile

This doesn't seem to work

(This doesn’t work for me.)

Just grab the URL: http://technorati.com/claim/abcdefg

Edit Description
(Just the claim URL, like this.)
(Find
out why Ben was sad here.)

and post that to a recent photo’s description on Flickr.

Additional copy can be in the description field too, as long as it doesn’t
interfere with the hyperlink.

5. Once you’ve posted your Flickr photo, finish the confirmation process on
Technorati.

6. You can remove the claim code from the photo once you’re reached the above
confirmation message on Technorati.

How to Claim Your Twitter Account on Technorati

Did you realize that Twitter is a blog? Yes it is, and if you don’t believe me,
just ask Technorati.

It turns out that you can claim your Twitter blog on Technorati. Why would you
want to do that? Because it makes it easy to track how many blogs are blogging
about things that you’ve Twittered about and who did the blogging.

How do you do it?

1. Click the
“Claim
Your Blog” link on the homepage.

2. Enter your Twitter Username’s URL: http://www.twitter.com/yourusername

3. Choose Post Claim

4. Grab just the URL of the post claim URL and post that as a Twitter tweet.
For example, if it said you should post Technorati
Profile

Just grab http://technorati.com/claim/abcdefg

and post that as a Tweet on Twitter.

You can add additional text after the URL (give it a space) to explain to your
friends what they heck you’re doing.

5. Once you’ve posted your new Tweet, confirm that on Technorati and you’ll be
good to go.
