Technorati selling blog-tracking services
On SiliconValleyWatcher.com, Tom Foremski reports on Technorati's plans to offer its blog-monitoring services to corporations so they can track what is being said about them, and their products, among bloggers, giving them the ability to quickly respond to criticism. Occasional Mindjack contributor Tony Walsh comments on the development on his blog, saying "Many bloggers (such as myself) notify Technorati automatically when new blog entries are posted, and "tag" these entries specifically to help Technorati file away the blogosphere. Now that Technorati will be monetizing this good will, I suspect its relationship with the blogosphere will be affected adversely."
