Fri, 06 Jul 2007 20:04:00 +0000A new look Authorati.com went live on July 4th. Here's a quick list of what's new:
Mon, 02 Apr 2007 22:37:00 +0000Introducing the Authorati widget- that's the one you see to the right of this blog on the sidebar. You can now create a custom widget and place it on you blog. Say good bye to the plain old HTML badge.
Tue, 20 Mar 2007 21:43:00 +0000We are getting ready to launch Authorati's redesigned website. While the makeover is going on in full swing, we could not wait to introduce our new logo. Here it is:
Mon, 05 Mar 2007 03:27:00 +0000Today we have introduced a couple of major features on Authorati:
Sun, 18 Feb 2007 22:57:00 +0000Cricket fever is here with the ICC World Cup 2007 set to open in the West Indies on the 11th of March. Authorati has introduced a World Cup 2007 channel for all the cricket bloggers around the world. Let's get it started Maan.
Tue, 06 Feb 2007 21:40:00 +0000An update about my whereabouts during last month. I was on vacation out of the country and just got back, right on time to catch the flu. I see another couple of days of recovery ahead of me and then hopefully will feel a lot better to get to work on Authorati and take it to the next level. Thanks to all the blog authors who signed up on Authorati in the interim and my apologies to some authors for not getting back to them soon enough on their queries.
Fri, 29 Dec 2006 17:36:00 +0000"Authorati Channels" makes its debut today. The first channel "Election 2008" focuses on blogs pertaining to the US Presidential Election 2008. Stay tuned for more channels coming soon.
Wed, 27 Dec 2006 01:24:00 +0000You can now optimize your FeedBurner feed with a more generic Authorati FeedFlare URL. Previously you were required to embed your Authorati username into the URL :
Wed, 27 Dec 2006 01:12:00 +0000You can now sign into Authorati using your OpenID identity URL. If you do not already have one, you can get your OpenID here. Learn more about OpenID here.
Wed, 13 Dec 2006 15:27:00 +0000You can now display your Authorati rating on your blog. You can find the required HTML snippet with instructions here.
Sat, 09 Dec 2006 13:09:00 +0000You can now find the Authorati FeedFlare listed on the "101 FeedFlares for a Better Tomorrow" page on FeedBurner. Look under the category "Rate This Post".
Wed, 06 Dec 2006 11:55:00 +0000You can find the Authorati FeedFlare in the FeedBurner public catalog at:
Tue, 05 Dec 2006 02:56:00 +0000Now that you have registered your blog on Authorati you may be wondering how you can track ratings for individual blog posts rather than for the entire blog. When you set up the Authorati FeedFlare for your blog, each individual blog post will be tagged by a "Rate Me On Authorati" link with parameters identifying the blog post title and link. When a reader clicks on the FeedFlare link, Authorati will automatically resolve the blog post and the reader will now be rating the individual blog post rather than the blog itself.
Sun, 03 Dec 2006 14:38:00 +0000John Unger on Authorati (Part II). Thanks John.
Sun, 03 Dec 2006 14:34:00 +0000Three new categories have been added: Religion, Entertainment, Video Blogs
Fri, 01 Dec 2006 22:51:00 +0000Seems like I might have to add a new category for "Religion".
Fri, 01 Dec 2006 16:52:00 +0000You can now optimize your feed by including the "Rate Me On Authorati" feed flare unit in your blog feed. Your feed subscribers can now rate your blog directly from the feed. I have submitted the Feed Flare unit to be included in the public catalog at FeedBurner. But you don't have to wait until it appears in the catalog. Follow these steps to include the FeedFlare unit in your blog feed now:
Fri, 01 Dec 2006 02:38:00 +0000Well, Authorati got it's first visit from an unwanted guest (an "Adult Rated" blogger) and hence a blog content verification process has been implemented. AuthoratiPages will be verified for the content of the blog before it appears on the site.
Thu, 30 Nov 2006 15:04:00 +0000John Unger has posted one of the first reviews of Authorati. You can read it here. I would like to thank him for his honest review and for fixing the Authorati badge HTML. The HTML is now also available for download on your AuthoratiPage.
Thu, 30 Nov 2006 14:55:00 +0000The last couple of days has seen a tremendous increase in interest in Authorati.com. It has been just a few weeks since the alpha launch and I feel encouraged by the response. I will be using this blog to update blog authors as I roll out new features on Authorati. This blog will also serve as a feedback forum about the site and help me fine tune Authorati as we move forward to the beta and later releases. Stay tuned and thanks to all the authors who have registered their blogs on Authorati.com.
