Keeping track of the blogosphere

Abstract:

An early form of blog emerged in the mid 1990s, but blogging really began to take off when easy-to-use blogging software started to appear at the end of the decade and the current familiar blog format with comments, links and tags began to develop. Specialized tools have been developed for searching blogs, among them Google Blog Search, Bloglines, Technorati, BlogPulse and Twingly. They offer advanced search features and some interesting display features, such as trend graphs and statistical information. Blog directories are categorized lists of blogs that can be browsed or searched by keywords to find interesting blogs.
