To try to find some links for the Inauguration I did a search on the word and found a satire blog site. I will keep looking for some sites to use with my students.

Week 6, #14
I search for “School Library Learning 2.0” in Technorati and was not happy with the results. I don’t find their search as effective as some other searches and search-engines. I never found the “School Library Learning 2.0” blog by doing a basic search on Technorati. But I did register my blog on Technorati and become a member. I found out that I had an authority of 4 meaning that 4 different blogs have linked back to my blog in the last few months. I was pretty impressed that link-backs are what give you an authority rating and if the Technorati site can be believed I should see more hits on my blog simply because I registered it. We will see. I was also amazed that I could not find Joyce Valenza’s blog using the basic search on Technorati. I have to explore their advanced search more. So far I am not impressed but I was able to find the “School Library Learning 2.0” blog when I did a search using Technorati’s “exact phrase” button. For me I think this is the way to go. I tend to remember the names of my friend’s blogs or basically remember the names. It may be better to me to search for the exact phrase most of the time.
I have written about Internet tags several times on this blog and my opinion has not changed much. I guess my basic dislike of tags is my own fault, I am not a very organized person as a rule and I tend to forget how I tagged things before. In previous posts on my blog or on sessions on del.icio.us I may tend to use one tag and then the next time I use something different. I am starting to wonder if it would help me to start tagging things by Dewey Decimal Number rather than by words that I will forget the next time.
