Baltimore, MD/Honolulu, HI (PRWEB) March 1, 2005
Blogdigger, Inc., a search engine for blogs and syndicated content, and Webjay, a community playlist site, announced today a strategic partnership. Webjay will utilize BlogdiggerÂs Media Search technology to provide enhanced audio and video search to their users to aid them in quickly finding audio/video content. Blogdigger will utilize WebjayÂs PlayThisPage technology to enable users of its Media Search to quickly and easily create a playlist to listen or view and save media search results.
ÂThe problem Webjay had is that both search and playlists are hard, and we couldn't do a really great job with playlists if we spent our resources on search. We tried other methods for searching our siteÂs web pages, but the search results just weren't very good in terms of our application's unique requirements,Â said Lucas Gonze, founder and creator of WebJay. ÂThe information needed to do a great job with Webjay is in our RSS feeds more than in our web pages. Blogdigger was able to do a better job because Blogdigger specializes in RSS searches.Â
BlogdiggerÂs syndicated content aggregation platform indexes new additions to WebjayÂs playlists as they are updated, allowing WebjayÂs users to quickly find audio or video by keyword search. Search results from Blogdigger will direct users back to WebjayÂs site, helping them discover new media content.
ÂWebjayÂs growing community of individuals creating playlists of freely available music on the Web represents a tremendous source of information for our Media Search engine,Â said Greg Gershman, President and founder of Blogdigger. ÂIn addition, WebjayÂs PlayThisPage technology enables our users to capture an audio/video search result feed as a playlist, saving a persistent copy of the search for future use. The combination of these technologies demonstrates how RSS can be used to create a better search experience. WeÂre excited to be working with Webjay to demonstrate the possibilities for enhanced media search with RSS.Â
Webjay is a free web service where visitors can make mp3 playlists of songs from legal music on the Internet, and then post the playlist to Webjay so that others can listen to their hand picked selection.
