I went to the technorati site to have a look if they had indexed that blog I was having trouble with (and this one) and I see:
Doh! The Technorati Monster escaped again.We're currently experiencing backend issues and are working to resolve them as quickly as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
Like this. Nice look, BTW. Dysfunctional for the site, but clean, aesthetic feel. Maybe the site is better down..... Don't believe me? See this:
Yesterday, it was an apology about some search and indexing problems they were having.
Almost all the time, there is someone or the other with blogs flagged for review, not indexed, links not indexed.....
This is of course idle curiosity..... I don't have a single blog that ever gets any traffic worth mentioning from there, so it doesn't really matter to me if they shut down the site on a whim. I never went there in the first place except for some occasional curiosity, but if you use Technorati for promoting your blog for more traffic.....
And curiosity gets me again. I'm wondering if anyone has experienced this place working like it was supposed to; and out of idle curiosity, what was it like?
