Last week Technorati introduced Technorati Topics. Its pretty cool scrolling “live” kind of pulse of the blogoshere if you will. Check out the page for technology here. Technorati has kind of gotten a habit of pioneering new cool things but then stopping just a little before they are polished and letting someone else come in and steal there thunder (see google blog search).
So here are some of the things I would do to make Technorati topics kick ass:
1) Give me a slider I can choose the authority threshold of blogs I want to see in the topics. Sometimes I might just want to see very highly authority blogs and sometimes I might only want to see smaller blogs.
2) Set a time threshold in which 1 blog can appear. Topics seems to be over run by super aggressive pingers. At any given time I see double posts or double blogs. Some are just spam but some are good blogs that are just making edits.
3) Make topics work for smaller categories. FOr now I cna only see Entertainment, Technology, Politics, Sports, Business and Live. I would really like to be able to see it for Google, or Adsense, or even Marketing.
4) Show me topics from blogs I favorite ONLY. This would be pretty kickass huh?
Ok thats it.
