First of all because you can. It makes sense to claim your blog on technorati, it’s one of the top blog directories out there, make sure you complete all of the profile info for your blog, specially the keywords.
Think of this as Yahoo’s equivalent to Google’s Webmaster Tools. It’s a much simpler interface and provides a lot less information than what Google has to offer, but it’s still worth it.
To get your blog verified you’ll have to follow a similar procedure to getting it verified with Google Webmaster Tools. Create a page with the title that you get from the Yahoo Site Explorer page and place the other code in the content. After that all you have to do is wait about 24 hours and it will be completed.
One of the first things you should start of doing is adding your website to your Google Webmaster Tools account, this is critical if you want to keep up on how Google is processing your page.
Here you will find all kind of info from your PageRank to the incoming links, and best of all it’s free. How do I get my site verified? easy. Google provides two options for this, choose the HTML file option.
Then all you have to do is Add a new page with the same exact title as the code that was provided by Google Webmaster Tools, don’t write anything on the content and mark the page as private (so it doesn’t show up on the menu).
