Alltop is blog and news aggregation gold
Alltop is a unique conglomerate of data that is a one-stop shop for practically every informational need you could want. If you want to see all the things going on in let’s say Home Automation, then all you need to do is click that topic. The next page you arrive at will have all the blogs and sites that have information regarding that topic. The list will show the 5 latest articles each site has published about that topic. It’s like organizing the internet into a digital magazine stand for the specific subjects that you want to know more about. Browsing the articles for each is as simple as clicking a link and you are off to that page to read the article.
Alltop on steroids
Now that you know how it works I suggest creating a free account with them and setting up a personalized page. With a personalized page, all the content that spans across multiple topics will be ready at your finger tips. For instance, on top of wanting information about Home Automation, I also want to learn about traveling and photography. Once I create an account I can subscribe to several topics and my personalized page will be populated automatically with all of those subjects. I can choose to subscribe to all the websites within a given topic or I can pick and choose ones that are most relevant to me.
Alltop is a very good tool for curating information that you want to know about. Over this past weekend, BackflipPhoto applied for our blog to be listed at Alltop in their photography section. We were accepted and we are now listed on their Photography list (you can see the photography list HERE) We are very excited to be listed and hope you guys all take advantage of this service. We are big fans of its simplicity and we start every day with a browse on our personalized pages.
