Blogger And Podcaster Media Network Looks To Turn Long Tail Blogging Into A Full-Time Job(October 28, 2008 TechCrunch)
Larry Genkin, the founder and editor of Blogger and Podcaster Magazine , is looking to help the long tail of bloggers turn their hobby into a lucrative job. He has started the Blogger and Podcaster Media Network , a consortium of bloggers and related companies looking to help bloggers of all sizes effectively monetize their sites without having to worry about having a relatively small audience.
I hear that Blogger and Podcaster Media Network (BPMN) devise the method that small blog obtain the income.
It introduces the method from among the article.
- BPMN helps give the blog more exposure with the major media enterprise.
- Small blogs gathered, it becomes one huge advertising media, and the advertisement income is obtained.
- When the blogger brings the network a new member, accolade money can be gotten.
Even if the management of this network can cooperate difficultly perhaps with the media enterprise at a while, the blogger will not obtain the income so much.
However, I think that the blog network somewhere will grip the key to one media in the future.

WordPress Acquires Irish Startup Polldaddy(October 15, 2008 TechCrunch)
Automattic , the company behind WordPress, has acquired Irish startup Polldaddy for an undisclosed sum. The purchase gives WordPress an infusion of polling technology and seems to be justified simply on the basis that bloggers love polls.
Automattic purchased Polldaddy, and the person who was blogging with WordPress came to be able to do an easy questionnaire survey.
I want to try sooner or later.

State of The Blogosphere: The More You Post, The Higher You Rank(September 24, 2008 TechCrunch)
All week, Technorati is releasing data from its 2008 State of the Blogosphere report. On Monday, Technorati told us that bloggers only need 100,000 visitors a month to make $75,000 a year (yeah, right). Today , it offers up something more believable: the more you post, the higher you are likely to rank on Technorati.
Blogging is a volume game. The more you post, the more chances there are that someone else will link to one of your posts. (Technorati rank is based on the number of recent links to your blog). The majority of the Top 100 blogs tracked by Technorati post five or more times per day, and a full 43 percent post more than 10 times per day. Meanwhile, 64 percent of the 5,000 blogs ranked lower than 600 post two to four times a day, which is still a serious commitment.
In fact, about a quarter of all bloggers spend more than 10 hours a week posting, and 66 percent spend more than 3 hours a week.
The more you post, the higher you are likely to rank on Technorati.
So, the position in the Blogosphere seems to improve by increasing the number of posted articles.
I hear that the majority of the Top 100 blogs tracked by Technorati post five or more times per day, and a full 43 percent post more than 10 times per day.
It only posts once a day for me.
However, the blog that enters the high rank posts a lot of articles.
The posted amount seems to be important simultaneously to improve the rank in the Blogosphere with the quality of contents of the blog.

Google Buys Foothold In Korea With Acquisition Of Blog Platform TNC(September 12, 2008 TechCrunch)
Google has acquired TNC (Tatter and Company), a Korean blog platform company that compares itself to Automattic , the team behind WordPress. Although Google already owns its own blogging platform, Blogger, it is not particularly popular in Korea. (According to comScore, Blogger had 1.7 million unique Korean visitors in July). The acquisition is clearly a geographic expansion move for Google, but its Textcube blogging platform also has some social networking features which Google might want to export to Blogger or other products.
Google seems not to have succeeded in Japan and South Korea compared with the Europe and America region.
It is because people in Japan and South Korea tend to like WEB portal more than the contents retrieval.
It might be important to enhance the WEB portal so that Google may succeed in Asia.
Does this purchase become the foothold?
How To Lose Your Cuil 20 Seconds After Launch (July 29, 2008 TechCrunch)
The hype cycle now lasts less than a day. Take yesterday’s over-hyped launch of stealth search startup Cuil , which was quickly followed by a backlash when everyone realized that it was selling a bill of goods. This was entirely the company’s own fault. It pre-briefed every blogger and tech journalist on the planet, but didn’t allow anyone to actually test the search engine before the launch.
A lot of criticisms are drawn to Cuil of a new search engine.
It is a criticism to the Web search result.
A lot of bloggers and journalist should have been expecting it of a new search engine.
Having advertised it to the blogger and the journalist all over the world came to cause a lot of criticisms oppositely.
And, this news comes to spread all over the world.
