URLFAN – Know What the Blogosphere is Talking About August 18, 2006Posted by Ced in Blog Babble, Feeds, Info, Online, Search, Services.
URLFAN is an online service that is designed to discover what websites the blogosphere is discussing all in real time. It does this by cultivating the content of thousands of RSS feeds and parsing billions of pieces of information.
Now every website owner can see who’s talking about their site in real time and how they compare to every other site on the Internet. There are many sites designed to rank the “traffic” of a website, such as Alexa, however ://URLFAN is different. We rank sites according to their popularity in the fast moving and growing world of RSS feeds. [URLFAN]
I tried looking up a few domains, but the site always reports that the domain/url cannot be found. Clicking on the “Top 100 Sites” just results in blank entries. I guess the service is down. Nice concept though.
