Hey, I don’t want to moan … but if my pings to Technorati don’t get spotted, and it doesn’t (apparently) spider my site, even after manual pinging and double-checking that pings work via RedAlt’s Pingomation service, that’s a problem. I’ve been through the WordPress forums, double-checked the pinging, and double-checked the settings. Consider this a test post. Email to technorati support is next. I like those guys, so this is not a casual whinge. Oh yes, I’ve been through the W3C Validator checking too, and cleaned things up on that front. Oh yes, I’ve also found a posting that comments how too many default ping services can cause a side-effect, so I’ve reduced it just one: Ping-o-matic. What gives?
[UPDATE: feedvalidator.org barfs on my rss2 feed, line 1, despite it being generated identically to the rss0.92 feed; so I’m certain this is correlated. Cannot crack this, trawled around the forums, FAQs, and am on to the support teams at WordPress and Technorati]
