For some time now, I’ve been developing a personal news aggregation website focused completely on SEO. I’ve decided to go ahead and make it available to the community at large.
Here’s the features:
- Presentation is in the sprit of Alltop and its predecessor Popurls, but I’m doing a lot of very customized aggregation, organization and filtering as well. You’ll notice it’s 4 columns across, packs the information in very densely, and should work well on handheld mobile devices (iPad and other tablet folks – you’ll have to zoom in).
- Combining similar sources, aggregating infrequent posters together, and organizing the page so each section has some coherence should make it easier to know where to look for something, and should also help to surface the most recent and important topical information available.
- In a few cases, I’m pulling in data from sources where no RSS feed is available – this has proven to be a great time-saver by reducing the amount of trolling around required to figure out what’s happening.
- It also allows you to track what’s going on in various SEO communities; if it’s a slow news day but you’re stuck in your dentist’s office, you can easily scroll to the bottom and see if there are any interesting threads or questions worth checking out. In each case, I’m only pulling *SEO-related* topics together – many of these communities have numerous other interesting discussions going on about paid search, domaining, and so on, so I would encourage you to poke around once you’re in one.
Take it for a spin!
