Lately I’ve been tinkering around with the endless possibilities of the Technorati API. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I added a section in Ratified.org simply called “Meme“. In a nutshell, it’s a blog meme that tracks the current and most popular stories in the Philippine blogosphere. The story’s relevance is measured by its age and the number of other Filipino blogs linking to it. I used Technorati’s API to track all the stories from select blogs. I admit that it does seem Digg-ish and Techmeme-ish, but what the heck.
As we speak, the most buzzed about story is Benj Arriola’s win at the SEO World Championship, which was posted yesterday and immediately seven blogs talked about it and linked it up. Indeed, his win is a big deal, as reflected by the blogosphere. It would be interesting to see which stories will make it on top in the coming days. If you think a story is worth linking to, link to it! That’s the equivalent of “digging” a story at Digg. Who doesn’t love link love anyway?
