I like the idea behind Technorati, but I've noticed that I don't really use it because of some weak points.
- It doesn't recognize languages 2. I only want to search for content in specific languages, or I want good translations of content in languages I don't speak.
- Low performance from time to time. I don't like waiting for more than one or two seconds.
- Not 100% reliable 1. Yesterday I've posted something that still isn't indexed at this moment.
- No ‘quality’ filter. Sites with more links are likely to have better content. I would like to be able filter on that. Then some tag RSS feeds are interesting to me.
I hope Technorati is able to improve on those points.
2 Update 2005-07-28: How about that: Technorati added language support yesterday!
I also have gotten a reply from Technorati on some feature requests.
