Google Blog Search Problems

Tony Karrer

I actually left Technorati for Google because Google appeared to be doing a better job. 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.

However, this reader is looking for something else: Which sites, if any, accept e-learning courses from freelance courseware developers?

Aide RSS Filtering Tool

Tony Karrer

AideRSS looks at a variety of sources of information including comments, technorati, bloglines, icerocket and del.icio.us to determine what posts are generating the most interest. It provides a widget that allows you to show your top posts for month or year. You can see what it thinks are mine in the right column of the blog. I've been creating similar information manually for a while, so it's nice to have an automated support for it.

Social Media in Plain English

Experiencing eLearning

Technorati Tags: Common+Craft , social+media , web20 , changemanagement The folks at Common Craft have another great video, this time about social media. What I especially like about this one is that it doesn’t talk about technology until near the end. The video focuses on the metaphor of ice cream: it can be mass-produced in a factory that focuses only on flavors with mass appeal, or individuals can create their own flavors at home.

Long Tail Blogging is Dying?

He points to backup evidence of this from a NYT article and based on Technorati's 2008 survey of the state of the blogosphere , which found that only 7.4m This somewhat supports the Technorati numbers. Just read an article in the Guardian The long tail of blogging is dying (Found via Donald Clark ).

Question: Tracking CBTs

Technorati Tags: CBT , LMS , tracking A reader asked a question that I’m not really sure how to answer. My experience has mostly been in higher ed, so I’ve always needed to do grading or more tracking than what this reader needs: I am the sole person involved with e-Learning in my branch, and I am mostly limited to using freeware. Â At present we are developing self-paced CBTS using PowerPoint, a PowerPoint-to-Flash converter, and HTML.

Ton up, going strong

Clive on Learning

Business Week quotes a Technorati report which shows 15.5 million active blogs (defined as blogs updated in last 90 days), which represents around 20% of all those that are tracked. It seems many start up with high hopes, but few have the stamina to keep going. Yes, blogging's a marathon, with no foreseeable finishing line. Anyway, I'm going strong. I've just noticed I've passed the 100 mark (this is 105) and, you know what, I'm really enjoying it. I think I'll do another 100

Feed Filters

I had previously discussed the Aide RSS Filtering Tool - AideRSS looks at a variety of sources of information including comments, technorati, bloglines, icerocket and del.icio.us to determine what posts are generating the most interest. I really like the concept of using different clues about what posts are generating interest to help sort through large numbers of posts. Certainly it's ability to find what are the posts generating the most interest on my own blog is helpful.

You can't get a cloud in your hand

Clive on Learning

I had links to all my favourite blogs, assorted badges, and code snippets to Google Analytics, Technorati and all sorts of other stuff. With iCloud appearing on the horizon, I was reminded yesterday of just how vulnerable you become when you trust all your data to a third party to store for you online. I made a simple change to my Blogger template and pressed Save. Some bug in Google's software then rendered my blog as a complete dog's dinner of code.
