Mining The Blogosphere
Chris Hoyt of Hoyt and company recently wrote a great article on the mining of the blogosphere by blog metrics companies, Intelliseek, BuzzMetrics and Umbra. Intelliseek and BuzzMetrics recently merged. I found Chris’s article to be very well written because of the overview of the current blogosphere, in terms of the growing importance of blogs for marketing people. I also found Chris’s arguments for the need for blog metrics companies very compelling, he asked the question, if your community of bloggers numbers 4,500 blogs, how can a company possibility monitor all of those blogs at the same time? I did think that Chris’s coverage of the blog metrics industry was not comprehensive enough however, there are several other companies that should be included in the industry overview.
