Topix.net has started crawling blogs. They announced yesterday on their Weblog that they’ve added 15,000 blogs to be crawled. This is significant news on two fronts.
Firstly it is yet another way to get your blog exposure. Similarly to being indexed by Google News if you can get into the index at Topix.net you should get yourself some extra hits as it’s a pretty popular tool.
Secondly this will be useful for bloggers looking for sources of content. Topix offer RSS feeds for any keyword that you add to it so that if any newspaper that it follows has an article with the keyword you get it in your feed. Now it’ll automatically present you with results for blogs and papers. Very handy.
update – funnily enough this very post has been on the front page of Topix for the last 20 minutes or so and has been getting me quite a bit of traffic – illustrating the point I made.
