Rojo is based on a feed set, this feed set is the aggregated feeds from the Rojo subscription web, stories from these feeds are clicked, saved, tagged, emailed, voted, etc…all these clicks (besides voting) assume an implicit vote of interest.
The most clicked stories appear as popular posts, this is also organised by category and tag.
Spotplex is also a memeclicker, but unlike Rojo it generates submissions outside the subscription web.
The way it works is bloggers place code in their blog, and when people visit their website, this connects to Spotplex and becomes an automatic vote for that post. The more site visits (clicks) the more popular the post becomes.
Hmmm, what if you didn’t like the post, but just by visiting it you voted for it. Anyway it also doubles up as a site visit statistics tracker for your blog posts.
But what about RSS content, do posts only get memeclicked (submitted to Spotplex) if items are clicked, what about views. If I offered summary feeds, I’d get more clicks, therefore more votes to climb Spotplex…is there a way it can harvest RSS views (part of audience enagement)?
They also offer widgets for all articles or limited to one blog, even limited to new or popular articles.
It’s not just posts, why not also list the most popular sources (blogs) these posts come from, basic who has the highest site visits, check out the Blog standing link.
