How to remove your Technorati account

It’s not possible to delete your Technorati account. You can try to contact their customer support to have your account removed, but their service isn’t the most responsive (if all).

As one of our users points out, to close a Technorati account one needs to send an e-mail to someone called ‘juicypeanut’. She needs to have your e-mail address and user name, and you may ask her to also remove your blog from the Technorati directory. However, many users have pointed out that account removal requests are completely ignored.

Helpful Trick: Obfuscate your profile info.

Because most accounts and profiles at Technorati cannot be removed, we suggest you login and change your account and profile information altogether.

Make sure you are logged in to your account on the site and click on the profile or options settings. Locate the fields with your personal info (email, name, address) and fill in generic, random information instead. If you can only select from several fields, change anything personally identifying. If possible, use a homepage/URL field or long text field (such as Description) and put this line in it: This may encourage webmasters and admins to create an easier removal outlet.

Helpful Trick: Removing online data

Publicly visible text/images often aren’t properly removed even when you succeed in removing an account. Try editing or removing them manually before removing the account itself. If you’re unsure what happens to your tracks: this can be found mostly in the Terms of Service/Privacy Policy; otherwise you can always contact Technorati and ask personally. By the way, removal requests don’t necessarily mean your data will actually be removed (e.g. due to legal obligations).
