Why doesn’t Technorati ever seem to work quite right (or at least work as they claim it does)? In addition to being slow as molasses, it has recently started to incorrectly index my posts. Maybe I shouldn’t complain since a month ago it wouldn’t index me at all. But now it’s schitzophrenic and associating the tags of each of my entries with the text of the post before it.
I sent this to their tech support yesterday:
I have had a lot of trouble getting my WordPress blog indexed, but it started to work when I added http://rpc.technorati.com/rpc/ping to be pinged each time I post.
BUT, then I realized I should have tuned on the option to “Attempt to notify any Weblogs linked to from the article.” So I turned that on.
Now that they are both attempting to ping you, my posts are showing up with the wrong title!
My recent entries have been in your database with title and tags of one post, and the body and permalink of the previous post. (Then I think the post disappears from your database when the next one is added.) Here is an example: http://technorati.com/search/%22blog%20maven%22
Help! Should I turn off one of my updating services? If so which one? Thanks for your help.
I haven’t heard back from them so I am going to just turn off the thing I recently turned on and see if that helps…
