As Blogosphere explodes, Blog search implodes

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

Blog search engines are tracking billions of blog posts. Some posts are mindless, some are fun and some are purely spam. As the size of blogosphere grows the quality of discoverable content from the blogs through the search engines is falling way behind. We saw a similar problem with the regular search before Google came up and wooed the online users away from Altavista. I recently searched on blog posts tagged as “digg”. Majority of them were spam. Some were good but they were beyond the first few results pages.
