Technorati ping on free accounts?

  1. According to Technorati,I should be able to set up auto-pinging from wordpress. However, that feature is not in my dashboard, which I assume is due to having a free account. Is there a way to set up pinging for free accounts, or do we have to do it manually?

  2. The WordPress.com blogs automatically ping Pingomatic and they in turn ping Technorati.

    Please note that WordPress.com is not WordPress.org. I have a feeling that Technorati is discussing the downloadable version of WordPress found at WordPress.org.

    Hope this helps,

  3. Ok, thanks. I figured that's what they were talking about, so I wanted to be sure.

  4. My blog is not updating in technorati even when I do it manually. Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Can you help me to get Awakened Warrior to show up when a "blog finder" search is done in Technorati?

  5. I'm begining to think that technorati is having some serious issues. My updated twice webcomic is showing as not having up dated in 3 days while my main blog is now 44 days behind. Lots of fun.

    I'm seeing your blog although its listed as 14 days behind.

    *chuckle* Maybe Matt and I should loan them some servers. :)

  6. you might want to bookmark PingOat.com ;)

  7. And how would that fix an issue on technorati's end?

  8. My previous response addressed the question in the initial post:

    "Is there a way to set up pinging for free accounts, or do we have to do it manually?"

    Your high horse looks awefully wobbly.

  9. Thanks for all of your help.

    I am using the Regulus Theme - where should I put this code? How do I access the area in where the code should be?

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://embed.technorati.com/embed/hdgf7xx8dy.js"></script>

    href="http://technorati.com/blogs/awakenedwarrior" rel="tag directory">awakenedwarrior.

  10. Scripts are not allowed on WP.com blogs for security reasons. It's mentioned in the FAQ at the head of these forums. FAQ as well with specific reasons why.

    T. picks up the WordPress category tags as their own as well so you don't need to worry about them. If you really find the need though for overkill, there's a method you can use explained here.
