I heard from Technorati….they did block me.
I heard back from their support folks and as it did turn out, they were blocking my IP from accessing their site. It turns out that they were receiving a large number of queries from my IP in a short amount of time and as such to prevent bots, they blocked me out. 🙂
I guess that it doesn’t help that I have hundreds and hundreds of keyword watch lists for my company set up and I probably overloaded them one day.
All is well with technorati now, their support was great and I am glad we were able to get to the bottom of this quickly.
Long live the internet.
