Blog Posts with Technorati

I have added a new feature to the bottom right hand of the site. I created charts for the number of blog entries for each of the major Democratic candidates.

Provided by Technorati, the chart calculates the number of blog posts and feeds you back a chart. The chart isn't a hundred percentage accurate since the entire combination of words might not appear. For instance, my chart for Warner is based on three words, Mark, Warner and President. If any of those three words are not recorded in a post it isn't counted. A full 50% of my own posts to a dedicated Warner site would not fit that criteria.

What these charts do tell you about is trending and spikes. Notice the day after Kaine gave the rebuttal to the State of the Union, blogs spiked sharply mentioning Warner. This should be a fun tool to watch as the campaign progresses.

Posts that contain Mark Warner President per day for the last 30 days.

You'll also notice Hillary has significantly more blog entries than other potential candidates. Primarily it is because she is the front-runner. Secondarily, there are an unbelievable number of conservative blogs who just can't stop talking about her.
