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.
