First off,这个网站不仅仅是一个互联网自私自利的梦想。评级燃烧器有自己的网络爬虫，aimed to discover new FeedBurnerfeeds and subscriber counts.As Fedorov wrote today,"The rating is growing all by itself.As soon as someone links to your blog,sooner or later it will be found by Rating Burner's bot.""
And the bot had to start somewhere.Fedorov kicked off the Web crawling using John Battelle's Searchblog at http://battellemedia.com/.您可以通过使用与昨天Reav燃烧器流行的URL黑客的相同类型来看到这一点。Try the URL http://www.ratingburner.com/?order=1&dir=aand find the exact order of the robot's work.Hovering your mouse over the"1"在“N"专栏显示该网站在1月18日上午11点18分被索引。M4 minutes later,it was off to the Black Hat SEO Diary.3 minutes later,the robot found TechCrunch,and it was off to the races.The robot eventually found 188金宝搏 on January 20th after noon,making me #216 in the list,which now has 368 individual sites..
Even more interesting,, Rating Burner shows a detailed mapof how each of these blogs link to one another.( 下载详细的图形) The sites with the most links their way have the most arrows,and those sites with the most FeedBurner subscribers have the widest arrows to and from their site.As the below graphic shows,his robot correctly noted I link out to Mashableand WinExtralinks to me.The map was generated by GraphViz,an open source tool..
My position in Rating Burner's map..
The robot spawned by Rating Burner has specialized intelligence to discover ad networks,and enables site owners to display going rates.As Alexander explains,the"crawler scans all blogs for signatures of some well known sponsors/advertisers and lists this information.It is possible to publicize prices for banner ads using special html comment .Crawler will find this info and publish price in the rating.""
There are also a number of hidden tricks in the database..
To find out the total number of comments in the most-recent post on any included blog,you can sort with the below URL:If you recall,评级燃烧器还暗示进一步分类，including tags for SEO and gadgets.Alexander promises there are many more to come,automatically generated,again by the robot and the intelligent database:
To sort included sites by the most recent post,这是一个不同的命令：
...and by PageRank:
He writes,"...categorization is completely automated.I have several samples of texts on special subjects like"gadgets"and then all blogs (5 last posts) are tested againts this texts using bayesian filter and shingles,and if the similarity is close enough,this blog will be listed under this category.I just need to add more categories and collect more sample texts.""Rating Burner is still in its infancy,even after yesterday's debut,without question.But there are some interesting tricks lurking in the database.想找到最近的帖子有很多评论可能是“hot"？Try this link: http://www.ratingburner.com/?order=4&filter=category%3ATOP..
And the blogosphere has noticed.In addition to my post,, which hit TechMeme,and Mashable's coverage this morning,the site's debut was included in Danny Sullivan's Search Engine Land wrap-upfor the day,as well as Marketing Pilgrim..
