Building relationships with other bloggers will help you. You need to get other bloggers to link to your blog and to your individual posts.
Voiceboks is an amazing community of bloggers and an easy place to build relationships. There are groups that focus on finding potential guest bloggers and become a guest blogger on someone’s blog. This is a perfect way to get your post linked to another blog. Work with bloggers that are in your same niche, you share similar blog information with and more importantly use the same keywords you do in Technorati.
If you are a food blogger look for a blogger who also blogs about food and ask if you could each share a post that would link to your blog. When Technorati spider crawls the web and pulls your blog from another blog your authority rank increases.
“Authority” is calculated over a six month or so period of amount of links to your blog, blogs popularity and keyword pings.
