Pinging Marqui

Update June 27, 2005: December 2004 through February 2005 I was part of Marqui’s “Pay to Blog” program. I wrote about them and linked to them once a week. During the three-month program I had this icon displayed on my site in the right sidebar area.

I’ve been unable to ping entries on Marqui’s blog and I’m not sure what’s up. I posted a comment on their blog but haven’t heard back. I have never seen this error until trying to ping a Marqui entry last week. Maybe trackbacks are not configured properly in their Movable Type “weblog config” area?

This is the error I get when I try to ping them:

Ping ‘’ failed: HTTP error: 404 Object Not Found

Here’s a rant about trackbacks or crapbacks.

Sorry for seeming like we are MIA, but we are still trying to figure this one out. (Our main MT guru is out of the office until Monday.) I promise we’ll get it fixed soon, though. Thank you for letting us know about the problem!

Thanks for the response, Tara!

What’s funny is that I’ve been getting so much trackback spam recently that I may just stop using it on my site and add the Technorati cosmos link to each of my entries.
