If I update my blog and Technorati doesn’t notice, did I really update my blog?
(Please scroll down for numerous updates. As things change, I’ll update the updates, which will then be updated with new updates, when updatability is required. And so on.)

Technorati is not updating its index of this blog as I ping it to notify it that I’ve updated. This has only been going on for a couple of days now, but some other bloggers have had the same issue for 45 days, 146 days, or longer.
It may, repeat may, have something to do with Technorati deciding that your blog is a splog, but I have no real evidence for that. (Only that it IS indexing my other two blogs which are right on this same server – and base domain!)
As I find out more about this problem and others that are having it, I’ll post the links here.
If you’re having an issue as well – or especially if you had an issue and got it fixed – let me know in the comments. Thanks! Somehow we have to let Technorati know about this and make enough noise so they actually get it fixed.

Technorati has started updating its index of bizhack again. I still haven’t heard from anyone there, and about 4-5 posts have fallen into the aether, but Technorati has picked up my 2 latest posts. That’s good … but there are still MANY bloggers stuck in index limbo. Some communication from Technorati about this would be a positive sign.

OK, I’m in the Technorati black hole again … it’s no longer picking up my new posts. It’s now missing about 7-8 of them. Ditto last comment above: some communication would be nice.

Now Technorati has forgotten that it knows my blog: on my account page it says “Errors listing claimed blogs,” and a search for bizhack in the blog directory turns up no results. Meanwhile a search for bizhack in blog posts turns up 248 links.
