Following linkings

Is it just me, or have Technorati, Twingly, Icerocket and Google Blogsearch become completely useless in trying to figure out who is linking to whom? Icerocket finds one reference (which isn't my own) from 533 days ago; Technorati is finding nothing; Twingly just lists my own blog as someone who links to my own blog a lot; and Google Blogsearch is just generically braindead.

On the other hand, following actual referrers says that at least Nokia Conversations is linking to me again, and I get random inflow of traffic from here and there.

Have the spammers won the battle? Is link/trackback spam finally so bad that the baby is finally going out with the bathwater? Is this the end of the great interblogistic discussions (though I am not sure if they ever started)?

Or did the discussion just move to Facebook and Jaiku and Twitter and nobody told me?

If the discussion moved to those sites it sure went a hell of a lot down in quality at the same time...

They only work if someone actually clicks on those links...

If one more person tells me I just must simply set up a facebook account I think I am going to go stark raving mad!
