The Lijit Wijit
I’ve enabled all the features. At the top is a search box. Just type in your search terms.
If you don’t want to take up a lot of sidebar space, you can just surface the search box, but I like all the functionality to be front and center.
Next is a tag cloud of most popular searches. Finally, you see the list of My Content. These are all the content sources that I publish on the web:
- Feld Thoughts is this blog
- Ask the VC is the venture capital question and answer blog I write with Jason Mendelson
- brad’s blog is my running blog (note to Todd – let me rename these within Lijit)
- del.icio.us/bfeld are my delicious tags
- LinkedIn should be obvious
- MySpace should be obvious
- Twitter / bfeld is my twitter account
Now – the neat thing is that you can search my blog, my content (anything I’ve published on any of these services), my network (anything I’ve published and anything anyone in my network has published.)
My network is really special – Lijit is working hard to automatically build these networks. My blogroll is one of the informers of this – look for others coming soon.
Incorporating Lijit into your blog is easy. If you are a Typepad user it’s now in the Typepad Widget directory. If you use a different blogging platform, it’s easy to set up on the Lijit web site.
Once you start playing with Lijit, you’ll discover lots of layers of interesting things. The search stats are superb and remind me of the early days of using FeedBurner and discovering new and exciting feed stat info on a regular basis. The Re-Search feature is pure magic.
