A few weeks back I wrote about a Web page capture utility that we developed as a prototype. We’ve just a built another application that takes things a bit further. Along with a screen shot, this new prototype pulls metadata and other information from your blog. If available, it can pull back the blog title, feed, type of software, author, description, and the date of the most recent feed. In addition, the Technorati Rank (via the Technorati API) and number of Yahoo! Inlinks are displayed (we used the Yahoo! Site Explorer API).
Like its predecessor this experimental application was developed in Ruby on Rails with a bit C programming. Let us know how it works for you.
Try the Blog Analyzer Protype v.01
(Update August 6, 2007: We’ve taken the blog analyzer prototype down permanently. The RSS Mixer prototype is still available and there are no plans to take it down.)
