After 20 minutes of scratching my head and several automated email messages telling me I was unsuccessfully claiming my blog with Technorati (one of the larger blog registries out there), I learned the secret.
All I needed to do was create a blog post, just like this one, and insert 4BGUG24BGFTP somewhere inside.
Once I published the post, the registry would scan the feed and see the new content with the claim code.
It’s pathetic it took me so long. I don’t remember this process from the past, oh so many years ago.
Kudos to Bryan Haines and others around the web for guiding me.
Now you know what I know.
