Over at Perry Web (Technorati? OK, Maybe I Do Care.) they noticed some of the improvements we've made in performance and stability on Technorati.
We've put a lot of effort into our search infrastructure over the last 3 quarters and I am extremely proud of our Operations team. Not only is our back end performance under 1 second almost all the time, the team was able to achieve this with very little additional expense.
I'm very excited to see someone posting good news since I suspect there a lot of others who have noticed but not thought to blog about it.
Finally, the other obvious thing that makes a huge difference is great people. That's what we have and we are looking to grow our team. Check out the job listings.
Case in point, here's a snapshot of my blog page on Technorati that shows it took 49 seconds between me hitting the Publish Post button and the post being available in the Technorati index.
