It is always nice when some one links to your site or says something nice about you and showing some love back is always a good idea. From time to time I have done some thank you posts but always wanted more time to acknowledge them… I think I have found an interesting way to go about it; MyBuzzMonitor

What's the BuzzAdded to my blog home page is a widget in the left hand column titled, ‘ FireHorse Friends’ which will monitor the Blog-o-shpere and list links to posts that are showing some love. Of course there is much more you could do with the system, so let’s have a quick look

 
The ‘MyBuzzMonitor’ service is a free widget (no registration required) that can be used to track the buzz on specified domains or keywords. So you need not be limited to using it as I have to show a little link love to those kind enough to mention us… you can use it to track the latest Buzz on just about any topic, website or combination of both.

They supply code so that you can add it to your website or blog as well as the ability to add the widget to a wide variety of services including;

  • My Yahoo
  • Bloglines
  • NewsGator
  • Blogger
  • TypePad
  • Google HomePage or Reader

They even have some prefab set ups for a variety of topics relating to Marketing, Technology, Start Ups and various other industries. If you wanted to you could even set up a Buzz Monitor page with a selection of widgets as such;

{jumi [includes/buzzmonitor.php]}

 

I thought it was an interesting little tool worthy of passing along. I have played with a ton of widgets over the years; let’s see how long this one lasts. Those of you in the Social Media Marketing game I thought would be especially keen for watching the latest buzz. Check out MyBuzzMonitor, it's cool ….. enjoy!
