Better, Faster Technorati Blog Embed

Willie Dixon was built for comfort, Technorati embeds were built for speed!

Here's an inside tip: if you are a Technorati member and you claimed your blog a while ago, you can likely optimize how your Technorati embed is served and thus speed up how fast your page renders. Go to your account page for your first claimed blog (or go through them all one by one and click Configure Blog). Does the blog embed code match what's in your template? Load your blog page and View Source to compare. The old school embed code looked like this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://technorati.com/embed/[BLOG-CLAIM-ID].js"> </script>
What you'll find on your account page is this:
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://embed.technorati.com/embed/[BLOG-CLAIM-ID].js"> </script>
How is this an optimization? Why should you bother updating your blog template from the old to the new style? It's faster! We optimized serving the blog embeds with some additional infrastructure not too long ago. The old way works (built for comfort) but the new one works better (built for speed)!
