Blog tracking service PubSub has announced that is to hosting a session on the FeedMesh initiative at Gnomedex 5.0. FeedMesh is a initiative that promotes a common source for shared and validated RSS feeds across the Internet.
“It’s extremely challenging for one aggregator alone to keep up with indexing and searching syndicated blogs and Web sites,” said Bob Wyman, co-founder and CTO, PubSub Concepts. “Rather than competing on how many blogs they monitor, aggregators are now differentiating themselves with the quality of services they provide. Yahoo!’s purchase of Blo.gs and entry into the FeedMesh clearly demonstrates the advantage of cooperating to ensure that the task of discovering and updating blogs is shared among all parties.”
