Update your Site's Thumbnail Image in Technorati

After browsing around technorati and visiting many sites, I noticed that quite a few were drastically different from the thumbnail image shown at technorati. I knew that my thumbnail was outdated and it bothered me a bit every time I saw it. So I decided to figure out why this was occuring and how to change it. Now this may seem like a small detail to you, but I do feel it can make an impact on traffic. If this was a problem for you and my fix below helps you out let me know.

Well here is what I found.

I have been trying to boost my Alexa ranking and so have been visiting Alexa on a regular basis lately. I noticed that the site image that was on Alexa was the same as that on Technorati. I updated the thumbnail at Alexa and it updated the thumbnail at Technorati. Apparently Technorati uses the site thumbnails from Alexa. Here is the link for where to update your thumbnail at Alexa.

later all and have a profitable and productive blogging day

Thanks a bunch for this useful info, mate! It used to bother me for a while now that my thumbnail didn't reflect the redesign of my blog :)

P.S.: Check your title! There's a spelling mistake hidden inside ;)
