A couple of items from two of the primary players in the world of RSS and weblog search.
Feedster CEO Scott Rafer told Bazeley, that so much non-blog information is now syndicated through XML feeds that it's becoming harder to hone in on purely blogosphere buzz or info.
Here are a couple of things that caught my eye.
+ Redesigned home page
+ Much faster indexing: most posts are available minutes after creation
+ A new advanced search query language
Boolean, nested searching, and date range searching.
Note: When I went looking for more info about the new advanced search options, I was unable to find it.
+ More data indexed
"We currently index posts that are up to about a month old, and we're going further and further back in our post archives every day, with the goal being to have almost 2 years of posts indexed soon."
