More – Make Your Blog Searchable

  • May 24, 2011

TapirGo.comTapir is a new web service for those who have a blog made out of static pages, and who want to turn it into something at least more dynamic. Well, Tapir will let them do that by adding a search engine to it.

The way Tapir works is certainly commendable, as it will let them do such a thing quickly, easily and at just no cost. All that the person has to do is to supply the URL of his blog for a token to be returned. This token can then be used with the Tapir API in order to have a search box deployed into the blog.

That will be it. All the content that you post to your blog from that point onwards will be indexed every 15 minutes. And old articles will also be indexed, and become findable by your every visitor. That is, provided such articles are included on your RSS feed. If they are not there, then Tapir has no way of indexing them. But leaving that aside, the application is flawless in terms of overall execution.

  • April 8, 2011

Ofelio.comOfelio is a new kind of search engine. Basically, it lets you look for information that is contained within RSS feeds. Using it is as simple as furnishing the relevant query, or picking one from the most popular queries that other people have been inputting – they are all featured right on the homepage.

Whatever you do, Ofelio will be able to display the results in lots of ways. That includes placing them on a map, which is really cool if you end up reading about news concerning countries you are not really that familiarized with.

Still, the best feature is being able to take all the items that you have found and having them combined into a whole new feed. This is great if only because you will be able to have your finds shared with your friends and colleagues at once, without having to email single links one by one.

More – A Search Engine For Feeds

  • April 21, 2009

Feedmil.comThere is a long tail of feeds dong the rounds, and that comes as no surprise really. The vast majority of sites on the web today come complete with a RSS feed, and it is impossible to keep track of every single one.

That happens for the simple reason that we can’t keep track of every site that surfaces, not even if we are interested in a given topic. That is why a search portal like this one has some intrinsic value – it will let you look up feeds that you might really like, and that would go unnoticed otherwise.

The search process itself can be refined by way of a provided slider that will let you set a popularity range from “Surprising” to “Well-known”. This way, you will have a chance to check feeds that few people have heard about, and you can also discover popular feeds that for some reason or the other you had failed to notice before.

This project was started by a web scientist and three search engineers, and it aims to become “the best feed search engine in the world”. Only time will tell whether or not it will achieve that aim. If you want to judge its merit, just follow the link which is displayed below and carry out a couple of searches yourself.

More – Pre-filtered Digg RSS Feeds

  • March 25, 2009

Disstill.comDo you wish there were a way of filtering your regular Digg RSS feed so that reading it becomes less time consuming? If that happens to be the case, then chances are this new site will have something in store for you.

In general terms, it lets you specify that only a number of stories be put your way.

That is, you will receive only a number of Diggs – a number that you know you will be able to sort through without spending “all day and all of the night”, to quote the brothers Davies and their troupe.

The number is actually set employing a slider that can go from 100 to 5000 – you can get whatever you can handle. Once you have manually set this number, you simply click on the “Get the RSS feed” link that is provided, sit back and listen to Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show while you keep your eyes peeled on your RSS reader.

Other than that, the site highlights the hottest stories on Digg in the last hour, day and week. Just click on the provided link in order to access that information right on the spot.

More – Retrieve E-mails As An RSS Feed

  • February 27, 2009

ToRSS.netA service which is rendered at no cost whatsoever, ToRSS can be defined as a tool that will let you access your e-mails as if they were a RSS feed. This service has two basic incarnations.

On the one hand, you can generate a feed that will let you retrieve the e-mails from your own mailbox. On the other hand, you will be able to create a feed to be accessed using the hosting service provided by the company.

This service can be employed either for a long period of time or for a short lapse. This is accomplished by creating an account on any e-mail service that supports POP3 in the former case, while a temporary RSS can be created by generating a pair mail-feed to go with if you want to use it for a short time.

In addition to being completely free, this solution is wholly web-hosted. This means that if you want to give it a spin you can do it at no cost and with very little effort. Consider doing so if you want to access your e-mails in a different context, or if you wish to be covered if the worst should happen.

More – Read the News that Matter

  • March 1, 2008 is a new service that will allow you to read only the stuff you are interested in reading.

Here’s how it works: the service automatically aggregates feeds from around the world in different languages, which it gathers from diverse sources (newspapers, magazines, news portals, corporate sites, blogs, etc), and then sorts out those individual feeds into channels and microchannels, which is the feeds that users receive. Thus users have the additional benefit of receiving only the kinds of news they are interested in, but they also get to know other sources they might not be familiarized with, plus since the service is available in a variety of western languages, it will be very useful for a large and international audience as well.

What you get are direct links within each feed item allowing you to skip right over the Digg page and get down to the real goods; there are now 100 stories per feed rather than the normal 40, meaning you’ll get more content and you’ll never miss anything. DiggFeedr is powered by the popular Ruby on Rails and uses Digg’s API to get the content; the feed is syndicated via Feedburner. It’s just plain faster and you get to see more content. Subscribe for free.

More – Digg for Pictures & Photos (?)

  • August 30, 2007

Biggsmash.comBiggsmash seems to pull stories from Digg’s news feed and search out pictures from stories that have words like picture, movie, photo and/or video in the title or content. I say “seems” because there is absolutely no explanation of the site purpose or function.

It looks and feels like Digg, with Digg ratings for each article, but no other information is given. There was also no other clear pattern to the stories. So, it might have other search algorithms or purpose, but i’m just not sure. I do know that if you Digg a story linked here, it sends you back to the Digg homepage and the search bar is through Digg. So i guess the unique function is the ability to find photos and videos within news stories, but that is the best i can figure out.
