Welcome to this week’s Link Fest. If at any time you happen to have a news item or link you would like to share with me, and you have a del.icio.us account, just tag it “for:miss604” to bring it to my attention.
On Wednesday January 23, 2008 there will be an open house at the Pacific Centre Atrium (Georgia and Howe, 12-1:30 pm and 4:30-7:30 pm) for all interested parties to view approved sketches and get answers to questions with regards to the redesign of Granville street.
The purpose of the will be to “enhance traffic, pedestrian movement and vitality of Granville from Drake to Cordova”.
Now, I use Google for everything. Regular searches, image searches, map searches and daily – news item searches. The thing about the “news” search is that it won’t list any blogs up there. You have to specifically select a Google Blog Search – or at least I thought you did.
Doing a NEWS search for the terms “test the nation” to see if mainstream cared at all that bloggers won a TV trivia game show, the only results pertaining to the correct topic were from Torontoist and BlogTO, two Toronto blogs.
This makes me wonder what it takes for Google to recognize you as a “news source” and not just a “blog”. Whatever it is, seems like these guys are doing it.
