Technorati Link Count Widget Add a link count or a “Blog Reaction” link to your posts from Technorati. This gives you a way to display the number of links to your posts, as tracked by Technorati in real time. I had something like this in the past in the form of a plugin but it bit me back when Technorati was either slow to respond or was down for the count. You can see it at work on this blog but I believe that this will degrades better than the plugin I had. Installation is relatively simple, though not a drag and drop and requires some addition of code. I am not sure if there is a WordPress plugin out already for this. Here is the Technorati Blog post from Tantek. Michael suggest that this might even replace trackbacks for him in spite of the issues he mentions.
