"New blog search engine Sphere launched just moments ago and has also announced a $3.75 million round of venture financing." This according to Michael Arrington.
Some fresh features:
- relevance based on:
- links in/out of blog
- meta data around the blog (e.g. average length of posts, post frequency)
- semantic analysis of the posts themselves
- custom date search
- featured results
- other media (e.g. pictures, news, books, podcasts)
Moment of Search Engine Social Software zen never felt so good. Must be truly so for the owners of Sphere.
