Pinging Your Blogs to Search Engines

Searching blogs with ReadABlog and BlogDigger

Technorati is great, I'm sure many of you already search using it. But there are also a few other good players out there. I've decided to write about a few of my favorites.

ReadABlog http://www.readablog.com is an RSS and blog search engine which happens to provide real-time information on feeds being viewed, popular listings, and the most interesting part - active keywords being used. Their results seems to provide a more raw approach to RSS and blogs, which is nice for a change. They have a built-in reader to view the RSS and blogs, so no external feed reader is required.

BlogDigger http://www.blogdigger.com is another nice blog search engine. Many of you have probably already seen this one. However, have you checked out their media search? It provides a blog and podcast search for feeds containing enclosed media such as images, movies, and audio files like mp3. I know you can just do a search on Flickr http://www.flickr.com if you want photos, but searching a media or podcast directory provides a greater variety of types.

Speaking of Flickr, their site happens to be going through an update today and is not currently available. If you are not familiar with Flickr, they are quite an amazing photo search engine. If you get bored or have some extra time, try a search on their site once they are back online.
