Fred Wilson: Technorati is doing the blog world a great service by maintaining these link counts. But unfortunately, they are not doing it well enough for my taste.
Randy: It looks like Fred is seeing the light.
Dave Sifry responds: Great post, and sorry about the problems and confusion you've been having with Technorati.
Randy: The blogosphere is like this big wall. We've known for at least a year that Technorati is broken. Dave Sifry knows. And responds with the same we're having problems posts. Here's Dave comments on this blog back in 2004.
Dave Sifry: We're having some ops issues this morning. We're working on it, and we'll get back to you as soon as things are fixed. Sorry about that!
Randy: It's unbelievable to me that people continue to think that Technorati actually works. I've been documenting the problem for 2 years. It's like talking to a wall. Hundreds of users are complaining and nothing is getting fixed. I have blogs that haven't been indexed by Technorati in 95 days and 23 days. Yes, Dave can kick start Fred's blog by getting it indexed, but a one off solution to appease a-list bloggers leaves the rest of the blogosphere in the cold.
