Backtype- keep track of your comments

November 9, 2008

You know how sometimes you write a comment on a post and then lose track of just which blog it was on? Backtype gives you a way to track comments you’ve made on blogs or websites collected in one place for easy review along with a profile so people can easily identify who you are.

When you comment on a site the comments are attributed to you and available on your backtype page. BackType can send you an alert when a new comment is added by email or you can monitor an RSS feed of all your comments.

You can set BackType to post your comments to Twitter or FriendFeed or even share them in a widget on your site as well.

BackType also allows you to search other people’s comments for strings or keywords and create alerts that update you daily or weekly with new comments with those keywords. This can be an interesting way to find new discussions. Sometimes the real meat of the conversation is in the comments and not the blog post. Here’s a way to see those too and keep on top of what’s being said about your area of interest.

Want to see what it looks like? Check out my BackType page, then sign-up and get started.

  • I have been with backtype for a while but only these last few days started playing with it and am actually finding it quite useful and interesting. When I did a Twitter shout for anyone else to hook up with on BackType, there were a surprisingly high number of my followers on it or tempted to sign up.

    So keeping my eye on this one.

    Awesome site by the way, came over from SEO2.0.

    I'm in some wonderful company!

    As for Backtype, I find myself using the dashboard a lot to search for topics and see what people are saying about them. Sort of a speed reader for comments, and then I follow them back to the post. Combined with IntenseDebate I've got a lot of feeds pretty well covered!
