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.

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.

Searching for Expertise - LinkedIn Answers

Clark Quinn

Note: the screen casts do not appear in my RSS reader - not sure if you will see it in yours. Yesterday I created a screen cast on LinkedIn for Finding Expertise. Today, I saw a post on our Free - Web 2.0 for Learning Professionals where someone said: I am currently trying to find a SME experienced with Moodle (a CMS/LMS) and WizIQ (synchronous web class technology).

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. I want a nice clean RSS feed of any posts that include links to my various sites.

Twitter as Search Engine or Community Seed

Nancy White

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. But chocolate is a wide ranging topic so using Twitter to search and listen would give you many results and you could aggregate that information to watch trends on a topic quickly. . Do you use Twitter as a search engine?

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. This made me wonder what else people were searching for, having me come up in the results list AND deciding to click on me.

For example, the chats, questions, and conversations between employees can be collected and refined to inform organizational search engines.

Alas, Twitter posts tend to be snow on the water, flowing to near-oblivion and lacking syndication through RSS —though there are hacks.).
