New Bloglines Features

Sorry for being quiet here lately. We’ve been hard at work on several things, the first of which we announced this morning. The new Top Links listing is a ranking of the most popular links of the past 24 hours from the blogs that we index. It’s based on a a new links database backend that you can search using the Citations page.
As Google has proven, links are the currency of the web. There are a lot of interesting features we can provide our users that involve link analysis. But we first had to create an entirely new and seperate backend to index all the links from all the blogs that we index. That’s tens of millions of links right now, and it has to scale to much more than that over time. It was not a small job, and we’re not entirely done yet. So watch for more features to be rolled out over the next several weeks and months.
