Meme propagation tracking

Freshness Warning
This blog post is over 17 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current and the links no longer work.

My previous entry is an entry into Nova Spivack’s meme tracking experiment. Although you enter by copying his entry to your blog and changing the text, it’s not the same thing as Friday Five or other such silliness. The idea is to study how an idea spreads around the Web from a single blog posting.

To help track the spread, there’s a GUID that can be used to search Google. Theoretically, any page containing that GUID will be an entry into the project, but it is likely that someone will poison the results by putting the GUID elsewhere. It’s also likely that someone will link to the project without participating. This helps spread the meme but would not include the GUID.

On the individual archive page for this entry, powered by the Technorati API and MTTechnorati, there’s a list of the last 25 links to the main project page. The Technorati list would include links from all blogs tracked by Technorati, whether they include the GUID or not.

Find more links at Technorati.
