Housekeeping: Technorati bug

In Blogging on Blogging on September 10, 2008 by Danielle Tagged: , , , , , , ,

On the WordPress FAQ and forums,there seems to be a consensus about a “pinging” bug. For us, this means a delay of 18 days and counting for which Technorati has not registered any new posts on their site (we’ve signed up and everything). The WordPress Support page advises patience as Technorati is experiencing explosive blog growth right now and they are probably behind on their Pingomatic pings from WP. However, looking back through the forums suggests this ‘temporary problem’ has been going on since 2006.

I did try sending pings from the Pingomatic website, with no success, so maybe WP is right. (Aside: why hasn’t Pingomatic updated their blog in the last 2 years?)

If you are a WordPress blogger and have experienced a similar problem, perhaps we can commiserate. Or exchange encouraging comments/ smileys.
