Maybe just switch to Google? (We did this on WP.com about a year ago.)

#4 @markjaquith

Using Google on b5media blogs too.

#5 @Otto42

I had a patch to do just that (switch to Google) on #4154, but it got -1'd and eventually filters were put in place so a plugin could do it instead.

I still think that using Google Blogsearch is a better solution though. I changed my own site to use it instead of Technorati and the search results it gets are faster and, IMO, better.

+1 switch to google please :), i prefer google blogsearch rather than techonarati

#7 @JeremyVisser

+1 for switching to Google as well.

FWIW, this will do switch the incoming links to google blogsearch with a plugin, using the trunk code. The needed filters are in trunk, but not in 2.2.1.

function google_incoming_feed($notused) {
return "http://blogsearch.google.com/blogsearch_feeds?hl=en&scoring=d&ie=utf-8&num=10&output=rss&partner=wordpress&q=link:".trailingslashit(get_option('home')); 
}
function google_incoming_link($notused) {
return "http://blogsearch.google.com/blogsearch?hl=en&scoring=d&partner=wordpress&q=link:".trailingslashit(get_option('home'));
}
add_filter('dashboard_incoming_links_feed','google_incoming_feed');
add_filter('dashboard_incoming_links_link','google_incoming_link');

Added patch to use Google Blogsearch instead of Technorati for Incoming Links feed, as per matt's suggestion.

Oh, this still gets a +1 from me too. :)

  • Owner changed from anonymous to markjaquith
  • Status changed from new to assigned

Looks like the tide has turned on this. Only considering it for Trunk (2.3) to minimize confusion. Speak now if you have objections (but realize that you can switch it back with a simple plugin).

#11 @ryan

I'll throw in my +1.

#12 @markjaquith

Re: 4577-google-trunk.diff

Will need to entity-encode ampersands in that second part of the patch.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

(In [5893]) Switch incoming links to use Google, fixes #4577
