I’ve been having a hell of a time getting Technorati to recognize the “haiku” tags I add to every original poem posted on tinywords, the haiku site I publish. I’ve tried everything I can think of: tinywords is a registered blog on Technorati, every haiku carries an internal “haiku” tag link as well as a link to the Technorati tag page for haiku, I ping Technorati (manually), I moved my internal tag link into the body of each post, I even restructured tinywords’ archive URL to ensure that Technorati actually recognizes it as a collection of tagged posts. No dice.
Technorati is picking up on site updates — in a blog search for haiku I can find tinywords, and it appears in that list as having been updated 8 hours ago (correctly). But a tag search doesn’t show the current day’s haiku at all.
Technorati’s help pages are no use — I’ve followed all the instructions there with no effect. I’ve bitched about Technorati before, so maybe someone there is pissed off at me — who knows?
Anyone have any ideas how to fix this?
