If you are wondering what’s going on with Technorati then you are not alone. Aside from the redesign of the site other changes have taken place and the most common question of the hour is: “Where did all my authority go?”
Embedded in that Technorati blog entry linked to above are two excerpts that were of great interest to me.
Sites that we have added to the clean index are being crawled, having detailed authority calculated, display recent posts (one at the moment) on our site, and contribute to other sites authority. We are continuously adding more and more sites to this index, and are working on ways to do so faster, but as you can imagine, the volume of sites to qualify is enormous.
If you find any sites getting that treatment that do not belong, please feel free to let us know in the Site Details page comments on Technorati.com, or over at GetSatisfaction/Technorati.
When I found this time ~ this place: personal growth, development and relationships blog appeared to be lacking an authority, a rank and at first no no posts were displayed, but a day later one was displayed, I found a current thread GetSatisfaction feedback on the same topic and posted into it.

My blog http://thistimethisspace.com doesn’t have any authority or ranking assigned to it either. Up until yesterday the latest post was not displaying but now it is. Hopefully, this problem will be rectified soon.I’m frustratedthis time this space commented 12 days ago
YAY! I am happy. Many thanks to technorati staff. My blog has now been updated http://thistimethisspace.com (16245.*) has an authority of 415. I appreciate how switfly staff acted to rectify my problem. I appreciate it. :)
Yesterday I submitted onecoolsite to website grader and received the following report:
In Mid-October 2009, the blogging directory and rankings site Technorati discontinued their calculation of Blog Rank and related data. HubSpot was using Technorati’s index for the Blog Analytics report, so we have removed this stat from the Blog Analytics tool. In order to continue to provide you with this valuable ranking data on your blog’s success, we will be integrating our own metric called Blog Grade into this page in the next few weeks.
Until we are able to finish integrating Blog Grade into the HubSpot product, your blog rank will show as “Not Ranked”. You do not need to do anything to prepare for the switch to blog rank – It will be automatically switched over to grade your blog properly when it is available. — Source
The truth is that like everyone else I’m flummoxed when it comes to figuring out what is going on. The six month link window is gone since the tune-up and exactly what’s happening behind the scenes remains a mystery.
