>An Important Note to Bloggers

>According to a news report published on The Washington Post, there are 50 million blogs online. This is an amazing number, a number that shows the popularity of blogging. For those of us who blog regularly, the issue is: how to get people to read our blogs?

Leslie Walker, Technology columnist for The Washington Post wrote: “The challenge of figuring out which blogs to read probably will grow even harder as more regular folks join the stampede to publish on the Web.”

Ms. Walker has written a column, “Searching for Order in the Blogosphere,” in which she announces the appearance of a new blog search engine called Sphere (www.sphere.com) This search engine differs from Technorati in the way it indexes blogs.

In her article, she also lists several blog search engines that are indexing blogs and organizing the posts in order to help readers find what they want. In addition to Sphere (/www.sphere.com) and Technorati (http://www.technorati.com), there are Google Blog Search (http://blogsearch.google.com), Icerocket (www.icerocket.com)and Feedster (www.feedster.com).

Bloggers need to read this article because Ms. Walker gives valuable information on how the search engines differ in their approach to indexing blogs and organizing posts.
