Technorati - where has the "Sort by Authority" gone for search results?
June 03, 2007
Am I missing something? Prior to Technorati's recent redesign, I was rather sure that there was a way to sort your search results by "Authority".... I seem to recall using the feature many times to find out who were the most "authoritative" bloggers talking about a particular topic. While Technorati's Authority measure isn't perfect, it does at least give some sense of how popular a given blog is. Sorting the search results by authority gave you a sense of which blogs to perhaps take a look at first.
I am, however, questioning my own memory - was this feature there before the redesign? Or did I just imagine it?
Today, post-re-design, I can't for the life of me find that ability in any of the search results. Yes, I can filter the results based on authority (i.e. specify the amount of authority to be returned: "any", "a little", "some", "a lot") which can help, but I can't seem to find any way to re-order the search results. I get them in reverse chronological order (newest first). Period. End of story.
Am I missing something? Or is there no way to do this in Technorati?
If not, does anyone have any suggestions for how to do it? (or other sites that make this easy?)
