There’s a new feature in the sidebar of Nick Robinson’s BBC blog: a list of ‘Blogs linking here’. It’s quite a nice feature, with a couple of extracts from particular blogs (selected and extracted manually), plus links off to Google Search and Technorati searches.
I’ve done something similar with a couple of projects recently (see here), using this as a proxy to Trackbacks (which are questionable at the best of times). Comment Is Free does likewise, with links to preconstructed Technorati searches for every article it posts… just click the green Technorati logo. It wouldn’t be a huge stretch to pull in the Technorati search results via RSS, and display them automatically on the page… but that becomes a huge risk.
