A Place Where Blog Search Engines Need Authority

Feature request for Bloglines or Technorati. Here’s where authority makes a big difference: when you search for something with a huge number of blog posts.

Say, for http://spaces.msn.com. Technorati, for instance, brings back 3,392 links. But, as you can see on the first page of results they are useless.

Basically they are content dupes.

Here’s where authority matters. For instance, Walt Mossberg linked to MSN Spaces from his blog. Now, he’s VERY authoritative. Is a tech journalist for the Wall Street Journal. So, his post should come up high. Well, really, any post that has unique content should come up higher.

But, Bloglines is doing no better with this query. I tried three times and it says the database is having problems and to please try again later.
