Ask’s new blog and feed search

Filed under: Blogs — Rohit Aggarwal @ 1:14 pm

Ask explains some of the features on its blog. Searchenginewatch has a nice review about this new search feature. I like the following passage:

"This means Ask doesn't have to guess whether a web page or feed is actually relevant, as subscribers have already "tagged" the content as something they want to read in Bloglines. In addition, the service can use the number of subscribers to a particular blog as a proxy for popularity—something that's comparatively difficult for other blog search services, since links to individual blog posts don't necessarily equate to the overall popularity of a blog on an ongoing basis."

I liked it because this is the way I calculate the popularity of a blogger in my paper.
