A while back I posted on how to generate a Bloglines ego feed using a webpage monitor (WatchThatPage), Micro Persuasion points to another post illustrating this idea.
You don’t have to use a Bloglines email to turn the email content into a feed, you can use other tools.
Now it is even easier if you use WebSite-Watcher as results can be returned not only by email but by RSS, so all you have to do is monitor your page and get results in your RSS reader, simple.
Then there is the other option to use a HTML scraping tool like FeedTier.
As I mentioned in my TalkDigger re-vamped post you can now generate a spliced ego feed from many engines in one go, first you have to select the engines you want to be included, so simply just select Bloglines, and you will get an ego feed…why don’t Bloglines just make one themselves, it’s been a while now.
Concerning TalkDigger I’m not sure if you can get rid of the
duplicates in the RSS version, I know you can, via options, but this seems to be only when viewing results in TalkDigger, and not in the RSS version.
[ADDED 14/1/06: Rather than duplicates what I meant to say is get rid of links from my own domain in the RSS version].
[ADDED: egoSurf would also seem to provide an answer but the problem is that you have to include a search term, you can’t just do a blank search to see who is linking to you, isn’t this the idea. I like that you can choose from multiple engines and it generates a feed, if you could do blank searches and select just one engine (Bloglines isn’t listed) then this feed could be a hack for a Bloglines ego feed.
Also if I could do a blank search to see all links to my domain I could just tick del.icio.us and see all my posts bookmarked in del.icio.us, in one go, instead of having to do a search for each post…Spurl does this well.
Maybe TalkDigger could add some bookmark engines or a separate module called BookmarkDigger, to see who is bookmarking your posts…something I’ve mentioned:
“Imagine doing a link search on your blog domain to see which posts and how many times they have been bookmarked by the various services, and what tags people used to describe/file your various posts.”
…I’ve also mentioned it way back here.]
