Graphing the Blogs

Post categories:

The excellent Datamining has a quick look at some tools for representing in graphical format the number of times a term is cited in blog posts. The graph here is for example is the graph of the number of links to Pods and Blogs contributor Robin Hamman's blog Cybersoc.com

You can also create similar graphs (but with more than one term for comparisson purposes) using BlogPulse Tools. Why would you want to do this? Well here's an example: I rather think that this graph is a pretty effective illustration of the power ofYouTube in pushing this story given that its first mention in the press on May 6th didn't really register with the rest of the media. But I may of course be wrong...there are after all, lies, damned lies, and graphs.
