Every since I switched to 2.6, I've noticed that my Incoming Links have stopped updating. I found a post in the forums that talked about switching back to the Technorati blogsearch engine, rather than the Google one, and decided to try that.
Long story short, nothing has changed. I didn't end up being able to switch back to Technorati, because the 'edit' button on my dashboard Incoming Links box does not save anything I do. I'm using the WordPress.com stat plugin, BTW, but everything was working before.
A forum search on this issue brought me another post (that I cannot find now)that seems to imply that there's something going on with the way 2.6 sends out an 'updated' ping.
Anyone have any thoughts?
