24-Hour Delay in PFblogs.org Posts: Testing

Previous: What Is Your PFblogs.org Delay?

Atom feed picked up my last blog post quickly but it took a day to appear on PFblogs.org so I am testing the time lag with this post.

Update: This post appeared on Atom feed within minutes and on PFblogs.org within an hour.

The fastest lag that I have noticed is about an hour delay but there are periods where performance degrades to a day later, which impairs the "news" value of the aggregator as almost no one will see the article when it posts to a buried position.

To my feed subscribers, do you notice any significant delay to your feed subscription?

I've just joined pfblogs, and haven't noticed a significant delay. That is, if it isn't "down for maintenance", which has often been the case for the last week or so.

BTW, I have added a graph on my blog in response to the comment you left. Let's see how/if Blogger formats this link.

Well, surprise, it didn't. There's always cut-and-paste.

EMF, thank you for the PFblogs information (you have had better luck than I have) and I will check your graph.
