Technorati Problems

Written By: Gary on February 5, 2007 9 Comments

Maybe someone can help me with this: When I look at my Technorati page for Gary Said… it hasn’t been showing my posts lately. Any suggestions on how to make my posts show up consistantly in their listing?It showed a few test posts I tried a few days ago and some posts from a few months ago, but it used to show every post and I can’t figure why it stopped (I ping them every post, sometimes multiple times).

I’ve got their code on the bottom of the page and like I said, I sometimes show up (but I think it used to show up all the time). I have no idea why the two messages work a few days ago and it doesn’t work now.

    Technorati is notorious for this kind of thing… it happens to everybody (well, it certainly happens to ME), so I’m not sure there is anything you can do about it.

    I do a refresh and refresh again or press the search button. Sometimes it does work after you try try again…

    I’ve effectively given up on Technorati. It does me no good because nothing is ever up to date on it. The only reason I seem to still be registered is because so many others still use it.

    They are always having problems. Give it a few days. Or you can ping them directly right on their site to check out your blog again.

    I’ve done that too, I’m wondering if it has to do with the validation of my page which isn’t perfect (he sidebars start to freak everything out, but the show up last) and I think my RRS Feeds validate (and everyone else seems to grab that stuff okay). (I’m gonna go check my feeds)

    MY feeds are all at http://garysaid.com/about/site/feeds/
    and either passed validation or had minor errors, but I still just updated them to the latest version.

    One thing I did notice with some of the validators is that some of my pages were dynamically created and it seems like some of them got “do not exist pages” when an initial “does this page exist” request was sent. I only keep them dynamic to increase rebuild time, I figure “why rebuild when I haven’t seen how the post looks yet?”

    Wish I could help, but I’m in the same boat. Technorati claims that my blog hasn’t been updated in 250 days — a ludicrous notion. I ping it with every single new post, so I don’t know what’s askew.

    I’d like to say I don’t care, but since so many rely upon it as a source for all things bloggy, it galls me to be shut out. Not that I’m inclined to do anything about it.

    Oh, I forgot to mention the Technorati page for http://TheDailyMeme.com/ gets properly updated whenever I add a new post…

    Interesting although an annoying problem which I haven’t heard of before. I guess you have pinged Tehcnorati as well!
    Wishing you a happy weekend from a snowy winter in Norway:-)

    Same as the others, Gary. Not sure what to tell you. In fact, I had to stop paying attention altogether because I hated looking at my ‘ranking’ go up and down. It was cool when I got down to 11,000 and now I think it’s up to 19,000 again. However, it does help people find you, so it’s not all bad.

    Hope you’re staying warm up there! Keep that cold air, would ya?
