Blog search engine Technorati turned three this week. They’ve had an interesting history and they’re now tracking upwards of 22 million blogs covering just about every feasible topic that comes to mind and a few that probably don’t.

David Sifry had a blog post about it and mentioned the post he made back on November 27th, 2002 about this new Technorati thing he was working on. He discussed the four basic features including Watchlists, Link Cosmos, Google Rank and Google Juice. The first two are still there, the other two aren’t.

He’s pretty open about their successes and failures and says they’ve shot about 50% on this one. He’s even got a link to the original version of Technorati, explaining how things work. It wasn’t as pretty then as it is now, but you can see the wheels were turning and things were being put together.

Now Technorati is a respected authority on the blog scene and has become a key source of information about the blogosphere. When something major happens, Sifry and his cohorts are on the short list of contacts for most journalists about the blogosphere.

Happy birthday Technorati! We hope to see you for a few more years.
