Technorati and AP partner

This could be big: Technorati and The Associated Press team to deliver up-to-the-minute blog post links to AP hosted online news stories

Tuesday, May 23, 2006, San Francisco, CA – Technorati, Inc., the leading authority on the global blogosphere, and The Associated Press, the world’s oldest and largest news organization, have announced an agreement to provide up-to-the-minute links helping readers navigate between AP news coverage and recent blogs about stories on AP’s Hosted Custom News service for Web sites.

When readers visit an AP member Web site that uses AP Hosted Custom News, they will see a module featuring the “Top Five Most Blogged About” AP articles. This module is dynamically powered by Technorati and within it, the reader will see links to a Technorati page that guides them to recent blog posts about that specific AP article. Additionally, when readers click on an AP article, Technorati will deliver “Who’s Blogging About That Article,” a listing of blog names with the date and time recent posts were made. The new functionality will be available to the more than 440 AP member Web sites in the United States that take AP’s Hosted Custom News.
