Mark at Escape From Obsession has seen a big jump in traffic since he started using Technorati tags, & he's considering the next step: "I've been toying around with introducing categories into the mix but with Blogger not yet supporting categories, it seems like an awful lot of hassle. Driko has a good article on using del.icio.us to tag keywords and include categories in his blog [which is powered by Blogger]. Driko has linked to another, more comprehensive, article regarding using del.icio.us and categories. Beelerspace has a beginner's guide to using del.icio.us. It's well written and gives a good overview of the service."
There's also an excellent list of upgrades that ought to be part of Blogger, the next generation.
Interesting that Mark credits Technorati tags with such an impact. I wonder how much of my jump in traffic is tag related & how much is due to a couple of posts that actually say something useful?
