Testing

Hmmm. Blogger is a pain in the arse when it comes to pinging the trackback system. I had to read the Movable Type explanation of trackbacks to learn how it can be done, and there’s no explanation of how I ping manually.

This links to the trackback URL of my post from earlier about speed limits. I’m going to see what happens when I click on it. That didn’t work.

It looks like people with MT can leave trackback info for my Blogger submitted posts, but I can’t return the favour.

There has to be a way……

    I use Haloscan.

  2. Yes, that works so much better. I’ve installed it. Now to bookmark the pinging form page at Haloscan.

    If you want to ping sites to show them that spinneyhead has been updated then check out http://pingomatic.com/
    It’ll send out pings to 14 different sites for you. I’ve automated the request to ping-o-matic with a little bit of perl. I’m not sure what type of account spinneyhead uses so I’m not sure if my script will help. Drop us an email if you’re interested.
