Yeah, now I get it :)

WordPress has a seriously kick-ass tagging plugin called ultimate tag 
warrior (http://www.neato.co.nz/ultimate-tag-warrior/), and I do think 
the best way to pursue this would be as an option in UTW of how to 
output the tags.

Interestingly, technorati extracts tags from the stuff at the end of a 
url, eg <link rel="tag">foo.com/bar/whatever</a>mytag</a> becomes tagged 
as 'whatever'. Since your engine puts the tags--so to speak--as 
hostnames (ie. http://tag.gada.be/), they won't work as technorati tags. 
I'm not sure whether this is technorati's problem or yours, but it's 
easy to fix by letting searches to gada.be/tag redirect to tag.gada.be.
