Track buzz around your blog posts with AideRSS



Just discovered AideRSS, a neat little service from a small Canadian company which analyses RSS feeds and assigns each article a PostRank™ (wonder what inspired that trademark? ;-) based on the number of times it has been bookmarked, dugg, blogged about, commented on and tweeted. Ostensibly a tool for readers to filter which articles are worthy of their attention, it also functions as a handy way for content creators to gauge the buzz around their missives. Above is a snapshot of some of the highest ranked posts on this blog in recent months, the most popular of which (a comparison of 15 lifestreaming services) was bookmarked 83 times using del.icio.us and generated 34 diggs, 33 blog posts, 20 comments and zero tweets.

Socialmeter (below) performs a similar function for individually input URLs, scanning assorted social sites to generate bar charts and an overall score. YackTrack, as the name suggest, focuses exclusively on tracking conversations and commenting.

Hi Dan, thanks for the write-up!

While some of our biggest value is definitely for readers, we have started to break out on our newly-launched postrank.com site the value for Publishers (e.g. bloggers) and Developers as well.

With the addition of Thematic PostRank, too, you can not only gauge how your own posts are doing, but compare yours against others in the same category (as you have defined it).
