Google’s search algorithms are getting really good. I launched the ticketstubs site exactly one week ago today, and a search for the term turns up probably 40 weblog mentions already. A search at Technorati for the URL turns up 99 matches, but with many repeats. Blogdex and Daypop report similar totals.
But the point of this was to highlight the speed and accuracy of Google. A year ago when these blog tracking services popped up, they served the gap that Google and other search engines left between the present and their index. It looks like Google has really tuned their engines because by my measure they’re keeping pace with the best blog tracking sites. I even found a handful of sites at Google mentioning ticketstubs that didn’t show up in one of the other tracking services.
