With Technorati in the midst of a major re-launch, it looks like we’ve lost one small-but-important reputation management tools: the ability to subscribe to keyword-based RSS feeds from Technorati’s blog database.
For ages, I’ve had Technorati RSS feeds setup for searches on my name and on “small business sem,” which is how many people refer to this blog. While checking RSS last night, I saw this alert from Technorati:
The message says that existing feeds have been “retired” and hints that new feeds are on the way. I went to Technorati last night and did those vanity searches, and sure enough … no RSS feeds available (yet).
It’d be nice to get this tool back.
