Technorati vs. Google Blog Search

Just a quick survey — do you still use Technorati over Google Blog Search? Why?

US market usage reports via Techcrunch last Dec. 2006

Which of the two is better at tracking/indexing blog specific posts? I still enjoy the use of Technorati tags to track definite topical searches. It’s a really great filter. Feature-wise Technorati still rocks. I wonder if Yahoo is looking at buying it soon.

    for us using multiply technorati seems to do a better job (for now) its indexing happens in a matter of minutes AFTER a post.

  3. Luis says:

    I use both, but I agree with you – Technorati is much more feature-rich than Google Blog Search.

    I use both and like what others have mentioned, Technorati does have more features than Google Blog Search.

  9. Mae says:

    I use both because there are some posts that google blog search catches but technorati doesn’t and vice versa

  10. Michael says:

    Google Blogsearch for it’s date feature.

    Technorati for tags and blog authority.

    Otherwise, seemingly identical in that both seems to overlook others blogs in searching.

  11. Jim says:

    I use Technorati, I only knew about Google Blog Search on WordPress. At first look (use), Technorati seem to be more convenient and flexible to use than Google Blog search.

  12. jaren says:

    i use technorati… for blog search and a plus it has more features

  13. Technorati has a search function? Really? No, seriously I know the function is there, but what use it would be to me I have no idea. Too many bloggers seem to see what other bloggers are writing about and then write the same things … self-defeating in my book.

    Technorati would be a great investment for Google though, in terms of market penetartion/visibility but a lousy one in terms of technology/customer service … if I were Sergi and Brin I would just concentrate on just doing what Technorati does better and better until Technorati dies a natural death … but then again, I’m not that smart.
