In February 2006, Debi Jones pointed out that Technorati's "State of the Blogosphere" postings, which then claimed to track 27.7 million blogs, did not take into account MySpace blogs, of which she said that there were 56 million. As a result, she said that the utility of Technorati as a gauge of blog popularity was questionable.WEB,weblink The Site that Ate the Blogosphere, Debi Jones, February 16, 2006,, 2007-03-02, However, by March 2006, Aaron Brazell pointed out that Technorati had started tracking MySpace blogs.WEB,weblink Technorati Indexing MySpace Blogs, Aaron Brazell, March 31, 2006, Technosailor, 2007-03-23, In May 2006, Technorati teamed up with the PR agency Edelman. The deal earned a lot of criticism, both on principle and as a result of Edelman's 2006 fake blog scandals. Edelman and Technorati officially ended the deal in December 2006. That month, Oliver Reichenstein pointed out that the so-called "State of the Blogosphere" was more of a PR-tool and money maker for Edelman and Technorati than a reliable source, explaining in particular: a) why Technorati/Edelman's claim that "31% of the blogs are written in Japanese" was "bogus", and b) where the financial profit for the involved parties was in this.WEB,weblink Technorati: Big business with bogus data, Oliver Reichenstein, December 13, 2006, Information Architects Japan, 2007-07-22, In May 2007, Andrew Orlowski, writing for the tech tabloid The Register, criticized Technorati's May 2007 redesign. He suggested that Technorati had decided to focus more on returning image thumbnails rather than blog results. He also claimed that Technorati never quite worked correctly in the past and that the alleged refocus was "a tacit admission that it's given up on its original mission".WEB,weblink Technorati knocks itself out.
