Technorati Feedster WebLogs.com PingOMatic: What's up with FeedMesh?

The basic systems aren't necessarily working. So does this raise questions about progress on FeedMesh?

Technorati: Pinged-, published-, tagged-content no longer reporting

This is a new one. I'm seeing Technorati tags-groups dropping content. Technorati tags have been pinged and reported, but are dropping of: Unable to find content that has been previously tagged, and incorporated into the tag-group.

The tags are valid. Even multiple words with spaces are reporting. The issue isn't spaces or strange characters: The dropped content-tags are single words.

The problem isn't just content falling away or disappearing. Some content never shows up. I'm seeing valid-pings go in for tags, that are searchable and report in the aggregator, but do not show up in the Technorati database.

Feedster: Pinged content not searchable

Feedster also has valid content that reports, but is not searchable in the index. They've got key names and indexes that report the data on their calendars; and key phrases in content is searchable.

But I'm not seeing the same kind of indexing-searching capability with key names.

Further, multiple RSS-feeds created on search strings, and they didn't report. Strange, the exact same strings successfully reported from the same content and aggregator, but through a different search engine.

Key words not consistently reporting from different blogs

Using Feedster, one blog reports the key word, while a second blog [though it has the key word] doesn't show up in the search. The problem is that the second blog shows the content in the monthly calendar, so the content is there on the platform, it's just not keeping the content searchable.

Ping-O-Matic and Weblogs.com

Still seeing the same problem with integration between Ping-O-Matic and Weblogs.com: Despite no pings for multiple hours, weblogs.com reports back that they can only take a ping every half hour.
