In my previous post, I mentioned that I’ve swapped out my Technorati search results link on each post over to an IceRocket search results function.
There’s more to it: I’m also dropping my 10+ Technorati RSS feeds (Customized RSS feeds of my blog’s name, my name, and other topics of interest as they flow into Technorati). In favor, I’ll be replacing all these feeds with feeds on the same subjects, except these will be sourced from IceRocket’s search results.
The trial is on: Over the next few days, I’ll be keeping an eye on IceRocket’s search results and closely monitoring (like Wolf Blitzer) the results. I’ll report back soon.
Not having much experience with their data, I will say that the company is off to a great start PR-wise though: In my previous post, Blake Rhodes, IceRocket CEO, left a comment thanking me for trying out the service.
How did he find this site? Well, I’m just guessing here, but I checked my referral logs and noticed a recent visitor came in from http://blogs.icerocket.com/search?q=Icerocket…that’s circumstantial evidence suggesting that perhaps Mr. Rhodes was using his own service to track word about his service. The owner of a company who uses his own tool- that’s always a good sign!
