Technorati weirdness

I’ve suspected this has been going on for a while, but haven’t had a good example until now: Technorati search results don’t seem to be stable. If you run a search and hit ‘reload,’ I guess you get cached data, but if you wait a few minutes and search again, you get different results. You’d expect this if there have been new results… but you wouldn’t expect the older results to disappear, would you? They do.

Ten minutes ago I ran a search for sites linking to Gia’s Sunshine blog (see previous post), which found six inbound links in the last day. Now, it finds two inbound links in the last two days.

Technorati broken? Old news. But they’ve recently upgraded a bunch of stuff and I was hoping it was more stable. But either they’re still tweaking heavily (on a Sunday?) or there’s something deeply whacked-out going on in there.
