Want to find blogs similar to the one you’re reading? Want to attract readers to a new blog? BlogCode is a nifty endeavour by Tim Ireland and the makers of StoryCode (to find similar books) that allows you to code a blog using 27 variables. Using a database of hundreds of blog codes the site then can give a score of similarity.
I coded the Gallomanor site as part of the Alpha testing and already we’ve had people visiting through BlogCode. A superb piece of work that should help people find sites and audiences of interest.
If you’ve got good matches (a score of over 80%) you may want to plant a piece of code on your blog that shows a live feed of similar blogs. Of course you may find that you don’t agree with the viewpoints of the most similar sites. That’s the bit about finding your evil twin.
