We’re making great strides here at Intense Debate in indexing comments! We’ve teamed up with Lijit to help bring light to what we call “the Dark Matter of the Blogosphere,” by which we mean most blog comments, which are usually not indexed by big search engines. For the first time blog readers and commenters have the ability to search through the vast number of comments made on blogs with Intense Debate.
What does this mean exactly? Glad you asked! In the past, comments have been unsearchable. You’ve invested your time and written informative essays in response to blog posts only to have them lost into the comment abyss. Finding comments was like searching for buried treasure – unless you had some sort of map where X marks the spot you couldn’t find them. Even if you had a map there was no guarantee. Well now with the first phase of our Lijit integration you can search for comments a bit easier. Consider it a far more reliable treasure map, or an awesome metal detector.
Lijit provides bloggers with an enhanced ability to let their readers search for and discover content on the Internet. If you haven’t given Lijit a try you’re missing out. Now, Intense Debate and Lijit have teamed up to put the wisdom of your comments on the map.
Stay tuned for further innovations…
