Is Technorati broken again?
August 16, 2007
Recently Technorati has been having problems with indexing new posts after you ping the service. A few weeks back it went almost a week without picking up anything new from my blog. Today it’s doing the same, and yesterday it picked up one but missed out older posts.
They seem to be having some issues over at Technorati towers. The indexing issue is the tip of the iceberg. Technorati is losing it’s usefulness to bloggers and regularly I see posts saying that bloggers no longer rely on it to deliver the traffic it once did. I get very little traffic from Technorati now but like to keep my site up to date by auto-pinging it.
I’d be interested to hear others opinions about the service and what they use to gain traffic now it’s broken.
