RSS Changeover Day Experiences

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Well, I''ve done my duty and saved my Google RSS data, and now I''m looking for a new reader. Digg RSS Reader - [link] This is I think the one with the most promise on Day One. RSS is great for personalized links, not content factories, but Digg doesn''t even attempt recommendations. Neither si there a search of feeds or posts; I''m really going to miss that. The Old Reader - [link] One of the first replacement RSS readers off the mark. No search.

Google Blog Search Problems

Tony Karrer

I rely pretty heavily on Google Blog Search to help me find people who are citing blog posts of mine so that I can see that kind of conversation. Unfortunately, it looks like Google Blog Search has decided that they will now include the entire contents of the web page rather than just the contents of the RSS feed. What this means is that I now get links to every post where the author includes my blog in their blog roll.

Conversation Searches

Tony Karrer

What are Conversation Searches? I often present around my Information Radar tools and methods, particularly my use of an RSS Reader. During those presentations, I'll mention what are sometimes called "vanity searches." These searches look for any mention of your name, company, URLs across blogs and other sites. For me, these searches primarily allow me to see what people are saying in response to something that I've put out there.

Twitter as Search Engine or Community Seed

Nancy White

The folks over at BrandonHall, the learning folks who blog lots of interesting links, pointed out a value of Twitter that not all of us may have seen yet. Twitter as a search engine. But I never really conceptualized it as search. First, I searched for something for me. But you have to have a question in mind to make the search meaningful beyond curiosity. I am not quite as clear about how searching Twitter as a one-off search can pay off.

Top Ten Subliminal Searches

Tony Karrer

As I mentioned before more than half of the traffic to my blog comes from search engines. Of course, that doesn't count folks who read content in their RSS reader, but still its a significant number. What's sometimes fun to do is take a look at various search terms that people use to find my blog. I'm sure glad my kids don't read my blog and to find out that somehow I support not doing your homework.

Where Do Blog Post Ideas Come From?

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Someone asked me by email, do you have any advice on how to come up with blog post ideas? The main thing is to be aware of them as possible connections, and when looking at one thing (say, a blog post) to keep other things in the back of your mind, always looking for these connections.

Blog Post Updates - Effective Pattern?

Tony Karrer

The disadvantage is that people who subscribe to my blog will not see the information in their RSS feed or in the daily email. The other disadvantage that is completely self-serving is that each post I create has a chance to serve as bait for organic search traffic in the future. The disadvantage is that content on a topic will be scattered around on my blog. My gut tells me that this is not nearly as satisfying for search visitors.

Managing Your Blog Entry - 11 Better Tips

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

A blog entry is a stub for conversation One of the key ways to create a loyal audience for your blog is to create a community of readers who interact with each-other on your blog. This means that your blog entries should be structured in such a way that they start conversations. The point of a blog isn't to gather a loyal cadre of readers around you dutifully writing comments. And you certainly should not be writing your blog simply to entice the commenters.

Beyond Social Media

Doc Searls

Twitter is now as necessary to tweeting as Google is to search. Look at four other social things you can do on the Net (along with the standards and protocols that support them): email (SMTP, POP3, IMAP, MIME); blogging (HTTP, XML, RSS, Atom); podcasting (RSS); and instant messaging (IRC, XMPP, SIP/SIMPLE). Even in cases where protocols were owned, such as by Dave Winer with RSS , efforts were made to remove ownership as an issue.).

Bring on The Live Web

Doc Searls

For example, we could search in real time, but search engine indexes were essentially archives, no matter how often they were updated. So it was common for Google’s indexes of blogs to be a day or more old. Technorati , IceRocket , PubSub and other live RSS-fed search engines came along to address that issue, as did Google Blogsearch as well. But they mostly covered blogs and sites with RSS feeds. And RSS is still a Live Web thing.).
