When you wrote, “they don’t necessarily conflate different URLs on the same site”, I’m not sure I understood your criticism. Technorati will list all of the people linking to URLs that are at or below the URL you provide. In other words, if you put in “http://www.sifry.com/”, it will show you everyone it its database who is linking to http://www.sifry.com/, http://www.sifry.com/alerts/, and http://www.sifry.com/alerts/foo.html.

Hello Dave. Thanks for dropping in. I didn’t mean it as a criticism, but thought it would be a limitation of having to allow for many blogs on the same site.

On second thought, it seems it was my mistake. Cory linked to my main page, and this link appears when I click http://www.technorati.com/cosmos/links.html?url=www.brockerhoff.net/index.html. I asked a friend to link to my main weblog page, and checked by clicking http://www.technorati.com/cosmos/links.html?url=www.brockerhoff.net/bb/viewtopic.php. At one point, it appeared I could see distinct search results, neither of which appeared when I searched on my general URL with http://www.technorati.com/cosmos/links.html?url=www.brockerhoff.net. I must have mistyped one of those URLs…

Your explanation makes sense, and it seems to be working fine now. Apologies.

And thanks for setting up TechnoRati!
