Technorati is a search engine for blogs. And while it’s useful, it's far from perfect.
The service among things works with tags (as the ones below this post) that allow the blogger to tell Technorati which keywords are used in each posting. But big surprise – webspammers too have found out about this and are abusing the system to attract visitors to their Rolex and v!agra selling websites.
Besides, not all blogs use Technorati tags (putting them in there is a pain) so the search engine will never find all websites.
At the same time I am a great fan of Technorati's RSS powered watchlists that allow me to track blogs that use certain keywords or link to urls (eg: this blog's).
