Morgan McLintic

That's odd Neville. I've been trying the same search engine on my blog and it seems to work. It returns search terms for my blog only. Perhaps re-install the code once more - maybe it isn't broken any more? Or perhaps it depends on the volume of content? I installed it two weeks ago.


Neville Hobson

I'd thought of doing that, Morgan, but frankly I just couldn't be bothered. So many hoops to jump through, and the Google search works perfectly.

But if it works for you, I might now just do that.

Robin Capper

I think they may have broken it. Worked for me when I first posted/tried now it doesn't.
Off topic, I cant get GEOLOC to work at all on my site.

amit agarwal

Fixed now !!


Neville Hobson

Thanks, Amit. However, it still doesn't work on my blog. I grabbed the new code from Technorati last week, but still no joy.

I emailed David Sifrey (Technorati CEO) on this following a comment he left on another post in this blog. Not had a reply yet...

Robin, re Geo-Loc, is is tricky sometimes! But if you've got the right code on your blog, maybe you have proxy issues?

Josh Hallett

Is there a correlation between the searchlet not working and you tweaking your DNS settings?

Neville Hobson

Good question, Josh. I did think that perhaps there might be an effect there. But the Technorati code searches on the underlying TypePad address not the domain-mapped address.

It looks like there are still problems with the searchlet, as Morgan posted updates on his blog yesterday.

Markus Sandy

There is definitely a problem with the Technorati "searchlet". There are numerous posts about this problem on the web now. There are at least three related problems: (1) no difference between blog and web search and (2) the returned search results are missing obvious items (no matter how long you wait - google does finds them easy however) and (3) the counts of the number of links are often wrong (an off by one error, it looks like - jezz).
