On Sunday night I was preparing the next lecture for my webinar, sale urologistMonitoring and Participating in Online Conversations, illness ” and was trying to demonstrate how to turn a keyword search on Technorati into an RSS feed.

The process is straightforward and recognizable for anyone who regularly does ego-surfing or conducts “personal brand audits” for their web properties and organizations:

  1. In the Technorati search box, anemia click the term or name you want to monitor.
  2. Click the “Search” button.
  3. On the results page, click on the RSS logo/”Subscribe” link in the top-right corner.
  4. From the ensuing RSS page, copy and paste that URL into your RSS reader.

Easy. I’d done it dozens of times without a hitch — until Sunday. Technorati was suddenly shooting blanks.

Oh, it was displaying plenty of results for me, and the “Subscribe” button was there, too. But here was what I was seeing on the RSS page itself:
I’m pleased to announce that Social Media Breakfast 2 will take place on Wednesday, see October 3 at 8:00am, at the offices of the Digital Influence Group in Waltham.
