    Anyone see Pingomatic? Appears to be down.

    For those who rely on technorati and the other ping services, you might want to start hitting those manually.

    I been manually pinging technorati for every post I make. I have no idea if pingomatic is actually working or not. How would we know that please? Where would we look to find out if it was functioning or not?

    Not getting a thing from their site :(

    Opera is just sitting at 0 bytes loaded and doing nothing.

    If the pingomatic site is down, it’s a fairly good bet it’s not sending pings. I just got an unstyled page to load on pingomatic.com but it took a looooong time.

    timethief – how are you manually pinging Technorati?

    And when I look at my blog in Technorati, it hasn’t been updated for 12 days :( I thought wordpress.com updated it automatically?

    You can go to Technorati.com and manually ping them once you’re signed in. It’s a button to the right of your registered blogs. You can also go to Pingoat.com, as they cover much the same territory. But I don’t know how to automate that.

    I have not been able to reach pingomatic for several days.

    Vivian: WordPress does ping automatically but I believe they use pingomatic do it (because it will ping all the top services at once).

    But the service appears to be down and apparently (at least from where I’m sitting) has been for at least a week. I’m pinging my favorite sites manually after each post.

    Well, I just checked again from work and I’m at least getting a homepage for them now.

    Hey, I was able to reach them finally and send pings. It looks like they’ve added two new services. Still no indication of why they were down for so long. Maybe things will be back to normal. I check technorati to see how long it’s been since my blog ping was updated. That gives an indication of whether WP and Pingomatic are working correctly.

    I find there’s a huge lag time on Technorati. Right now there are links to my blog from other blogs that don’t register on Technorati, and half the time I ask for my stats it tells me it’s too busy right now, come back later. Honestly, I’m just not thrilled with Technorati, although I bow to the hegemony.

    Something SHOCKING happened today!! Technorati finally updated my blog after a month and I got hits! :)

    When pingomatic is down, use pingoat.com

    If you want to automate it they let you bookmark the submission page to come straight back to. Nifty.

    Hmm, pinggoat.com. Have to remember that one.

    Thanks,

    Yep, technorati isn’t perfect! Sometimes my stats don’t show up accurately, either. When they do update I get lots of reads. Good news is I’ve started getting search engine hits, so maybe that will compensate for when all this other stuff is down.

    To manually update T. you can use this in your browser:

    http: //www.technorati.com/ping/http://username.wordpress.com

    Note: Space added to get it to show correctly.

    Seems to work for me.

    I’m thinking it may be an issue with T. though as even Pinggoat seemed not to affect it. :(

    Why are you asking? My posts are being pinged at technorati within moments of being published.

    Been working for me. I hit it once a day normally manually though.

    What specific issue are you having?
