Technorati Errors Still Stand

Hello? Is there anybody out there?

Unfortunately my three Technorati support requests have gone unanswered. This is unfortunate and a bit disturbing.

I am still down by 40 for blog reactions
and 48 adding me as a favourite.

My Technorati authority is now artificially down by 10 points.

The only comparable level of blog reactions for my blog was back in September 2007.
The last time I had so few adding me as a favourite was in May 2007.

All the work I have done since has been reset and I am very slowly crawling back up again. This is unfortunate because I think it damages Technorati's credibility as a ranking system for your blog. I have been using the service since 2006 and I still find it to be an easy way to track incoming links and favourites. When clanging errors such as this not only occur but go unnoticed, it gives one pause to wonder whether this problem will ever be rectified.

  1. I've not used technorati, but it sounds like they made more work for you once already. I'm sorry.

    How do you get people to add you as a favorite? Oops...there's me struggling with that high school popularity again. :)

  2. Hi Grandy, you're not alone! Form friendships with other bloggers, social networking site like MyBlogLog, BlogCatalog and Entrecard, or exchange Technorati favourites. Hope this helped :-)

  3. Hi LJP. I agree that Technorati takes quite sometime to reply. In my case, it takes around 24 to 48 hours.

    What I try to do to resolve my Technorati.com concerns is to ping the site after every post.

    Doing that for a week has allowed my blog to get back on track.

  4. Hi janettetoral, I usually ping them after every post but for some reason there are still a few problems. But...some things have now been solved so I'm a bit happier now :-)


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment ! :-)
