An interesting idea for an improvement might be to link each keyword to the search results for that keyword, whether powered by a Google site search or Movable Type's search.

I would generate such a list like so -- 1. Query your database to get all of the records you want to examine... SELECT body FROM myblogentries; 2. Read each row into your favorite scripting language and break the words apart on the spaces... (in PHP) $words = split(' ' , $row['body']); 3. Count word occurence for each record... function cnt($item, $key) { global $n; $n[$item]++; } array_walk($words, 'cnt'); 4. Normalize the results (i.e., scale from 0 to 1)... asort($n, SORT_NUMERIC); $n = array_reverse($n); $max = current($n); function normalize($item, $key) { global $n, $max; $n[$key] = $n[$key] / $max; } array_walk($n, 'normalize'); 5. Display each word on your page... function listwords($item, $key) { global $n; $weight = $n[$key]; $size = 4 * $weight; echo "$key"; } array_walk($n, 'listwords'); Probably best to calculate and cache, of course. :) Peace.

Does the list repopulate as time goes on based on the most recent entries?
