Trackbacks++ ?

Technorati has introduced a promising new feature. Click on the “Blog reactions” link at the bottom of a post and you’ll be taken to a list of other blogs that have linked to that post.

This is functionally like trackbacks but instead of including only blogs that actively notify other blogs when they link, it takes advantage of the fact that Technorati is indexing so much of the blogosphere. If it sees a link to one of your posts, it adds it to the list of blog reactions.

I am on Technorati’s advisory board (disclosure) and will be advising them to let blog owners set the color of the link and to get rid of the Technorati logo. [Tags: ]

Later that day: The blog reactions are making my page load too slowly, at least intermittently. Or maybe I just hit a rough patch on the Information Highway. In any case, I’m removing the links until I understand better where the problem is.
