I have a blog, www.globalcctvhub.com and I have set up tags to link through Technorati.
The problem is none of my tags register on Technorati, I have asked them for help, but many weeks later still have recieved no response.
On first glance, the tags on your site look fine. You have:
while Technorati recommends:
Looks character-for-character identical to me.
Digging further into the Technorati help system, I found this:
“Once you have posted the tagged post, there are two ways to have your post included on a Technorati Tag page:
- If your blog software is configured to ping Technorati, congratulations! You’re done!
- If your blog software does not support automatic pinging, or if you haven’t set it up yet, or if you’re not sure, you can manually ping us here. You might also want to configure your blog software to ping us automatically so you don’t have to do that every time.
“Your post should appear on the page in a few minutes (up to an hour during periods of intense activity).”
So I’m thinking that either your postings are showing up and you’re just not seeing them, or that you just aren’t telling Technorati that you’ve updated your weblog with new content.
The former can be easily checked: a search on Technorati for any content from your weblog shows that Technorati is only aware of three postings in the last 20 days: Mad About Shanghai, Snow Blankets Shanghai, and A few days difference. A quick peek at those reveal that they’re actually a different weblog, Mad About Shanghai, that has a matching tagline. Meaning that Technorati has quite simply never heard of your weblog or indexed any of your entries!
To fix this, you can either manually pop over to Technorati and ask them to visit your weblog on their manual ping page, or you can automate the process by adding the following to your notification/ping list in your blogging tool:
That should solve the problem of the missing Technorati Tag matches!
