4/24 Linkfest: Are you pinging?

After reading a post over at Miss Beth’s about trackback issues, I noticed something strange: lots of blogs on-line journals 😉 are not showing as updated since April 6th or 7th. This encompasses those on WordPress, Moveable Type, Typepad, Blogger, and a few other hosts/platforms.

If you can, you should ping Blogrolling directly at “http://rpc.blogrolling.com/pinger/” or go to Blogrolling.com and use the manual pinger. There have been many issues in the past (can’t complain too much, it is a free service) with the weblogs.com updates not going to Blogrolling. Do not rely on Pingomatic.com, they have been going up and down.

If your software allows adding more ping address’, add them. Cannot hurt. Except with Technorati, which, according to rumor, will blacklist anyone sending out multiple pings too often.

You can go here to see what all the ping address’ are. Don’t over do it, though.

Why should you make sure you show as updated on a blogroll? Readers. If someone sees you are update, they might pop over and see what’s up. Also, if you are showing as updated on some lists, such as Blogs For Bush or Homespun Bloggers, it helps your ranking a bit in the Ecosphere.

Do you have an interesting post? Or just a post? ;) Want it spread around? Well, go ahead and link it up! Otherwise, Cynthia McKinney may pop you one, or worse!

  1. Many immigrants at mercy of translators…

    Once upon a time a majority of the restaurant workers in Chicago were Americans. Shocking I know. Then one fine day President Ronald Reagan declared amnesty for a whole piss-pot of illegal immigrants and before you could say, Ole! The restaurants in …..

  2. Trackbacks fixed!…

    Thanks to Lisa (my kickass blog host) for the Clue!

    If you’re using WordPress and having trouble with your trackbacks like I was (trackback pings were generating 404 errors), check your .htaccess file; you may have screwy permalink info in there…

  3. Lego my Bible…

    Some parts are pretty explicit. Because, um, the Bible tends to get pretty explicit in some areas, too. Like the Old Testament. Plenty of stories about (and instructions regarding) stuff like rape, incest, homosexuality, bestiality, and when to stone…..

    So Vietnamese-American Buddhists are turning to non-Vietnamese and largely non-Buddhist (Harmon is described as an attendee of a Buddhist meditation group) funeral directors to make sure that a proper funeral rite is observed! Only in America!…
