As you can probably tell by now (probably by noting the name of the featured article category) this is a blog for hi-tech blogging solutions; aka: nuts and bolts. Sometimes though I come up on something cool that I want to share with my readers that I find it the “blog’o'sphere” (did I spell that right?). So this weeks post is centered on comments we all make during the coarse of our week on other peoples websites.
I have always taken the stance that what I say on someone else’s website or blog will stay with that site so that whoever reads it can place it in context.
While I was rummaging about this weekend doing the Google thing, I found a curious entry on the index of one of my blogs. It’s a site called backtype.com
I can’t tell you how many times that I have visted a website and after careful inspection, I have no idea what in the world the site is about. This site has a very clear definition; and I quote: “BackType is a real-time, conversational search engine. (Say What?) Conversational search is a new way of searching the web to surface what reputable people are saying about topics and webpages that interest you. We index and connect online conversations from across the web in real-time, so you can see what people are saying about topics that interest you.” (italics mine)
I seen some great ways to back-link ……… but this takes the cake. When I arrived at the site, I could read everything I had ever said online, at anyones website ……… oh man ……… all on one page no less and apparently in “real time”.
Man ………….. why didn’t I think of that ? Check it out, and remember to be careful what you say out there in cyberspace. Big Brother is Blogging.
