Portal of Indian Weblogs Durable Link to this BLOG
Building a Portal of Indian Weblogs

I've maintained a List of Indian Weblogs since last September.

Then Anita Bora started a much longer list, with annotations and locations. Her list has grown a lot, and alphabetization, while helpful, doesn't suffice the need to browse through it rapidly.

We need a tool that does the following:
• Search by name of the blog or blogger (the person who writes it)
• Search by location (which part of India, outside of India etc.)
• Sort by most oftenly updated or alphabetically
• List the blogs by most recently updated

I hear that some work is being done by Mahesh Shantaram and Anita, and I look forward to its release.

I wish I still had my spider Narad active, so we could have summarized the recent entries.

Tips for the Implementor(s)

To avail the time of most recent update, we can use the Last-modified tag provided by the HTTP header. While many servers may not provide it (and it might be incorrect for the dynamically generated blogs, like my AutoBlog), it is a cheap way to fetch the time of last update.

Alternately, we can implement a like ping interface. Upon updating their blog, the bloggers would have to tell the portal that they have updated the blog.

This is how I surf the web. Turns out creating your own start page beats all portals, back-flipping, personalized corporate pages, and book-marking tools.
