Yeah man, it's relevant!

Jeez. I've been thinking about relevance for ever, so it seems at least. What in the heck is relevant in Weblogs, Podcasts and Videoblogs? Tags? Hits? Links? Blah? Blip?

So I was just sitting here staring at 49media, drinking a glass of red wine and thinking. Yahoo's got the Buzz index. The buzz index. The buzz index. I look at what people are searching for in 49media. That's a buzz index too! But it's the buzz index for the people that are actually using 49media to find cool stuff in weblogs: images, podcasts, videoblogs) - that's what people are looking for. That's what's relevant... at least for a home page, the page that people go to and see first when they get to 49media. They still browse and click here and there, but if they type in a search, then that's what they're looking for.

So what does that mean? Well, check it out - click over to 49media and see what comes up for the words people are interested in... you may not like it, I may not like it, but that's what people are really interested in. And there's nothing I can do about it.
