Yeah I know… Sometimes I look at my stats on my blog (currently on average at 700 UV/day, and over 1000PV/day), and sometimes I do an ego-search on Technorati to look who is talking about my blog. A few weeks ago, Technorati released a little feature called Technorati Mini. it’s cool, as it opens up a little window with the last 5 links to the keyword you typed in.
It’s great to watch something happening live, instead of pressing F5 (reload) all the time. Clearly useful for brands following a product launch, a piece of news developping, etc.
Now on my side, I have 2 URLs for my blog: http://sepulveda.net and http://rodrigo.typepad.com. So I open up 2 windows. And I’m starting to track http://vpod.tv as well. So here go my requests to Dave Sifry and his team:
1) can you please make it simpler to track several keywords in just ONE window ? either mix all the feeds, or create tabs of some sort ?
2) I really do not need to have the window update every 60 seconds, so that should be configurable
3) I probably can display more than the last 5 links on my vertical 24” display. So can the number of posts be made configurable too ?
4) I would need a little icon to appear next to each link if I haven’t clicked on it, or when it’s new. Just to make my life easier when I glance at the windows every hald and hour or so.
