Technorati Replacement?

A few months ago Technorati stopped working. It was a pretty handy deal when it DID work, showing me who links back to posts here on Mr. C. I left a message on their support page a few weeks ago, but no reply or function resumption. Reading through their site it's clear that they made a lot of major changes, and after the changes, a LOT of blogs didn't show properly anymore.

Is anyone aware of a similar service that will let you know who has linked to your blog posts?

Hi Ry,

I looked into the Google thing on alerts, and it looks like it sends you an alert when something, your URL for example, is used in a Google search. The RSS thing does too, I think. I'm looking not for searches, but links back to Mr. Completely from other blogs. Maybe that's there somewhere in Google too, but I didn't seem to see it. Did I miss it?

.... Mr. C.

This link will probably not work, but here are the blogs that linked to you in the last 24 hours (modulo crap like blogrolls): here. So, subscribe to new results as alerts and you're gtg.

I use Google now too, but it also has its own issues, as it often picks up blogroll links, so it's still hard to tell who's linking you in the noise of all that. Sadly there's no good replacement for Technorati, which sucks, because now it's mostly impossible to easily tell who's linking you.

I use Koego (www.koego.com) on my blog. I have found that like most non-Googlised products it doesn't work 100% on my blog but it does tell me where people came from, both the site and the country.

I also use sitemeter (sitemeter.com) which I find to be rather reliable too.

Good luck!
