    Hi there, yeah I should your suggestions. I’m having problems on all of that. Like for example on this “technorati authority” thing, although my blog has too many blog linking to it, technorati doen’t seem to see all of that. Thank you very much.

  2. Helmi Asyraf says:

    About the technorati issues, have you register and put the meta code/technorati button into your blog?

  3. ariff says:

    Talking about RSS, do you know why there’s no image in wordpress’ original feed? It’s a waste that the images does not appear in ping sites whenever I ping new posts

  4. ariff says:

    I don’t think Technorati is any good nowadays. People seem to forget it already

  5. Mike says:

    Is there a reason to allow trackbacks and pingbacks to show up on the blog at all? I usually dont approve them so they dont show up.

  6. ariff says:

    If you’re talking about your own ping backs from different posts in your blog, there’s a plugin that makes the pingbacks disappear. Trackbacks from twitter or other sites could somewhat be useful.

    But surely you have to separate them to avoid confusion in the comment section
