Technorati adds Multiple Tag Search

Posted on August 22, 2005 in Technorati

Technorati, a blog search engine, has now added a feature to their site which enables you to perform a multiple tag search.

According to Niall Kennedy at the Technorati weblog:

You can now search Technorati for multiple tags! Just separate each tag with the word “OR” to add an posts tagged with your specified tag to your search results.

Multiple tags are a great way to follow your favorite topics while accounting for the variety of methods people tag their posts. A tag search for college OR university displays the latest posts indexed by Technorati tagged with either “college” or “university.” You could also mix tags in an area of interest such as tracking the mobile gaming industry through a tag search for PSP OR GameBoy.

My immediate thought when hearing this news was that it would be more useful to be able to specify the AND boolean value in your search criteria. Other comments in the blogosphere seem to be saying the same thing - see Corante, Kevin Burton’s Feed Blog, thesocialsoftwareweblog and TechCrunch.

Please note the OR part of your search criteria must be in uppercase or your search will not produce any results.
