Is Technorati a victim of its own success?

TechnoratiAt the risk of biting the hand that feeds the blog, I was wondering if anyone has noticed the high proportion of "We couldn't complete your search..." messages being returned by Technorati? Technorati is undoubtedly king of the hill when it comes to searching blogs but it looks like the success might be straining the systems. Hopefully they'll sort it soon. The number of blogs out there has apparently punched through the 50 million mark so it would be quite forgiveable if the job has become harder far quicker than expected.

Hear! Hear! I also know the Technorati "Just popped out, back soon" sign. Maybe it's a ploy to make us they're so cool. Seems to work. I keep clicking.

Ah, if only we had ads on those pages. :-)

Seriously, we had a glitch today, but things should be back to normal, and hopefully you won't notice the massive rumblings under the hood over the next few days...
