splogs and what we can learn from them

BlogsNow always checks for all entries how similar the blogs are than link to a given entry. Just now I tightened this parameter radically. It catches now more splogs and also a couple of ‘real blog entries’. If your fan club is not diverse enough, then you will not make BlogsNow as easy anymore. Looking at BlogsNow how it’s filtering I must say this makes sense: Those real blog entries are mostly linked by the very same group of blogs. Mostly on both sides of the political spectrum. Plain link repeaters have simply less influence right now. I like the results better: They reflect what is emerging in many blogs, rather then what gets pushed by whatever agenda there might be.
