    cuz if there is I'd love to know what it is. I've been trying to claim my blog since the crack of noon and get one of two error messages in some sort of random 'surprise pop-up feature' order.

    It either tells me:
    "The URL you provided is invalid. Please check the URL and try again." OR

    "The time it is taking for our systems to claim your blog has exceeded our timeout threshold of 5 minutes"

    Well the 2nd one sounds like some sort of heavy workload type thingy but the first suggests I've entered something like
    uuu.spot-the-braincell.cum whereas in reality I entered the very valid url which I can't yet disclose due to my lack of postings.

    Has anybody any idea what it's on about and has anybody managed to claim a blog on technorati and if so would they be so kind as to offer any top tips?
    cheers all

    That continued to happen to me the other day. Finally a message popped up that said there might have been a site that was banned that was similar to yours and that's why it is saying your URL is invalid. It said if that's the case to send them an e-mail.

    I'm assuming if a site with a similar name or blog hosting service was banned, that's why it's giving you that message.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for that I'll bang them an email, do you have an address by any chance, all I can find is the contact form.

    Technorati is like DMOZ. Just try to get in there. Impossible.

    Keinehabe, have you tried to claim a blog with them lately? That's what the OP was bitching about. That service seems to be down now for a good month.
