Technorati expects to see all blogs utilizing the new crawler by the end of next week.

“Over the last six months we’ve been working on a rewrite of our blog crawling infrastructure from the ground up.” Dorion Carroll writes in the post. “With a new architectural approach, we’ve added a lot better coverage of many new blogging conventions, better visibility and tracking of what is happening in the internals of the crawler, and how to do a better job of recognizing all the great content bloggers are discussing and linking to.”

We hope for a good time for bloggers who were pinging the Technorati blogosphere manually each time after publishing their post. Please let us know your views regarding Technorati crawler stats for your blog.

  • Technorati’s new crawler is retarded! I’ve been trying to claim my blog and it keeps telling me that my robots.txt file is “explicitly blocking” them – I’ve tried almost every type of attribute for allowing their bot and I still keep getting the error. I’ll say it again… Technorati’s crawler is retarded!!
