This just in (19).

"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:
  1. links in/out of blog
  2. meta data around the blog (e.g. average length of posts, post frequency)
  3. semantic analysis of the posts themselves
  • custom date search
  • featured results
  • other media (e.g. pictures, news, books, podcasts)
I like the metadata-around-the-blog relevance feature. Should make my short posts appealing to those suffering from ADHD.

Moment of Search Engine Social Software zen never felt so good. Must be truly so for the owners of Sphere.
