Pings not working

I've noticed for about a week now that when I update a post my pings don't seem to work. None of the readers or blogrolling picks up when I update. I've checked my list of blogs to ping and it seems to be up to date. Does anyone have any ideas?

I want to make sure all of you know when I update with words of wisdom and insight.

The same thing has been happening with me, only it's been for much longer than a week. About the time you think it doesn't work at all, it shows up.

Kinda like comments have been...

Umm maybe it's the operator instead of the system? Just my 2 cents

Munu, like Blogger, has a disadvantage when it comes to "pings". It's got to do with all blogs from a certain domain that try to ping blog rolling, etc. I can't remember exactly, but it seems to be a failing of these ping sites not allowing more than a certain number of pings at a time. So, it updates strangely.

This means I often check these blogs directly if I expected a post and didn't see any new ones listed. Although the posts do show up in my feed reader later in the day it can take up to 12 hours.

you can ping by hand, and it works just fine.

This one is for Blogrolling. And this one is for Technorati.... Between these two it will hit most of the various readers.

To answer Teresa, each of these services only accepts one automated ping every 30 minutes or so per domain as an anti spam measure. But the hand entered ones you can ping every 5 minutes.

Hey, if I could just get Fluffy off my case I would be happy. Seriously.
