Using Technorati and Tags 101 – Screencast


I got some good feedback on the screencast introducing RSS to beginners.

So, I’ve created a new screencast showing the various ways I use Technorati and Tags. I cover searching keywords and urls, searching for, creating & embedding Tags into blog posts, and creating watchlist RSS feeds. 

Btw, I’m getting hooked on this screencast format.  I’ve been asked a few times what I use to create these.  I use Camtasia Studio…here are some screencasts (self-referentially created in Camtasia Studio) showing how to create and publish screencasts using Camtasia Studio.  Also, see John Udall’s post, (the man who is popularising this communication format).

    What prevents spammers from using false technorati tags attached to copied/invisible content on their blogs?

    Remember the golden rule: the internet sinks to the lowest common denominator.

    On this one, j00 fail it. Next buzzword please.

    I followed Alex Barnett’s blog post on technorati tags to try and create a tag on Zambia.

    Kaluzi,

    Good point, however, it shouldn’t dissuade folks us. Email has been a victim of spamming…if we thought the same way with email, we would have have given up the idea and we’d still be faxing each other.

    Alex, email had a loooong honeymoon period before spam became entrenched. RSS doesn’t have the same luxury…
