OK, I don’t really know what I am doing here. I hope it is not something that will ruin things for my blog.
So I need some advice and help re: PINGing and Technorati…
I think that after posting this post, and experimenting with it, I may remove it.
All my ramblings do seem wild and crazy when I read them over again.
Here’s what happened: I was concerned that my Technorati rating had not changed. I thought I had done whatever was necessary at BlogSpot to automatically ping Technorati if there was anew post.
But then I went to Technorati and it said it had not been updated in 14 days. I had been writing like mad over the last several days – 21 posts in the last 14 days!. That is major writing for me! So it should have been updated.
I GOOGLED “ping technorati” and found that perhaps, BLOGGER does not work with automatic pings to Technorati.
Could this be true?
BLOGGER does not automatically PING Technorati?!!
There was a post that said to add some text into my blog,(
http://rpc.technorati.com/rpc/ping) but it did not say where. If I put this text into my blog supposedly it would automatically ping Technorati, but WHERE to put it? In each and every blog post? In only one blog post? I wasn’t sure…
Then I found this site called BlogBUZZER. I typed in my blog info. They activated some code. They said I should put the code into any page of my blog. One time of inserting on any page would send a ping to any place like Technorati that I had selected to ping.
Who can tell me what all these other places (Like Technorati) were? I had only heard of Technorati. David Warlick calls them “information gathering services on the Internet”. I picked a couple that sounded vaguely familiar. So now I am writing another post after inserting that BlogBUZZER Code on my previous post.
BTW, It did make a little icon or widget at the bottom of that post.
So I am trying this to see if this works.
If you read this and know what I am talking about (because I really don’t know what I am talking about), please respond and let me know what I am doing, right or wrong!
Some things are more clear after reading David Warlick’s post here.
