I need to ping Technorati from a blog have and am advised by my server company that i need to use XMLHTTP. Is this possible given the Technorati instructions below?

Many thanks in advance!


Build your own

Technorati accepts XML-RPC pings to Your XML-RPC message should look like this:
HTTP Request Header

    * POST /rpc/ping HTTP/1.0
    * User-Agent: YOUR AGENT HERE
    * Host:
    * Content-Type: text/xml
    * Content-length: 250

XML message

<?xml version="1.0"?>
      <value>YOUR WEBLOG NAME HERE</value>
