I have been trying to "Claim my blog" on Technorati off and on for weeks without success. I have followed the instructions to the letter time and time again and it simply does not work. Has anyone else had this problem? Any advice? I'm about to give up and move on! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.....
I got an error message for weeks and then gave up for maybe a month. Then the other day I got as far as posting the code to my blog, but the RSS never picked it up. So, still in Technorati limbo. No advice, just here to commiserate.
Thanks for the sympathy, Lori and No Return Mom. I will try adding my blogspot address, Lori. But if that doesn't work, Technorati will just have to do without this mom blogger. I'm sure they'll be crying. ;0)
Don't worry too much about Technorati. It used to be the measuring stick by which bloggers were measured, but that's just not the case anymore. I've never fully used Technorati and have had great results not only the founder of this club, but as an individual blogger.
These days if you really want to get out there, use social networking sites to their fullest like Twitter and LinkedIn.
Jennifer, I'm not really sure how Twitter works to increase traffic and as a social networking tool. I signed up with Twitter, posted an update, got two people to follow me right away. They were both sleazy.
I guess you have to take the good with the bad but how does Twitter work, actually? Clueless in Twitterland :-)
I had the same issue for awhile. But then I switched from IE to Firefox and that seemed to make it work, suddenly. If you're not using Firefox, try doing it that way and hopefully it will work for you too.
i gave up on them months ago... read a bunch of forums hoping for help (it stopped recognizing my blog when i purchased my domain). basically everything i read was 'don't waste your time, it can't be fixed'. which sucks, but in the big picture technorati doesn't mean much of anything.
I thought it might just be me, April, but it sounds like this is a widespread problem. I'm not going to waste any more of my time ... I've learned that Technorati is on its way out, in part, because of these kinds of annoying problems. I'm bloghopping tonight ... I'll come by and visit you1
Whenever two people form a relationship, there are moments when one might believe the other is cheating on them. Whether it's out of insecurity or there are signs that just don't seem right, it is painful and betraying. The good news, there are also signs that strongly suggest your man is not running around. …
Whether we like it or not, we will all at one point have to wear the event planning cap. Why is that? Because we are human, and along with our humanity come life celebrations: baby showers, weddings, graduations, anniversaries, retirements, funerals, and the list goes on and on. I'm sure that I don't…
