The Search Blogrunners

What's your homepage? iGoogle? Mine's Blogrunner as it lets me see, at a glance, what's hot in the blogs. I really wish that Google offered something like this - a Google News for Blogs. Even better would be a Google Blogrunner that let me picked the sources or keywords I cared about as feeders and let them influence the agenda.

The rest of this post is a little bit of a boast.

Google recently asked for people's SEO recommendations. That was pretty rare.

What was also rare was that WebmasterCentral post started a thread/headline in blogrunner. Well done Susan Moskwa. I can't be %100 sure that's a Google first. It's one of the first I've noticed, though.

I noticed this because my trick question? post was also included in the blog discussion thread.

There are very few Search blogs that make Blogrunner. Here's the list of people who made this discussion:
  1. Matt Cutts
