Pings, Again

Some blogs seem to be having trouble pinging - there are no errors, but they aren't actually showing as "updated" in BlogRolls either. I'm not really sure what is going on, so if anyone happens to have suggestions, I'm all ears.

I know it is happening on the main Wordherder blog, as well as with the new one: Raining Cats and Dogma.

EDIT: Ok, I think I might know. Under Weblog Config/Preferences, make sure that "Notify the following sites when I update my blog" has checkmarks next to both "blo.gs" and "weblogs.com". Now, even if they do, Save, then Rebuild.

I just did that for Dogma, and it seems to have worked. Hopefully it really is just that easy.

The last couple of times I updated, I received no error messages, but I am not listed as having updated in people's blogrolls. Weird.

Oops, never mind.

I still seem to be having problems here. I followed these instructions, and I'm still not showing up as having updated my site.

Same problem, here. I've updated, but blogrolls aren't updating!

It worked this time....I'll keep checking.

Hmm. I wonder if the issue is with blogrolling, rather than us...

Keep me posted on how often you run into ping errors vs. how often you just don't show up as updated in blogrolls (with no errors).

You can also ping blogrolling.com directly. Here's the info from their docs, at http://www.blogrolling.com/docs_ping.phtml :

If you use Movable Type as your blog package adding the call to BlogRolling is very simple. In your "weblog config" under "Publicity / Remote Interfaces / TrackBack" add in http://rpc.blogrolling.com/pinger/
