RSS Feed TrackBack

I’ve been playing around with the different RSS Newsfeed readers out there and for Windows users there is a great reader called SharpReader. It has all the features of the other 3 panel type readers, including categorisation of feeds, import and export of OPML files and Auto Discovery however it has got one very interesting feature which I think we will see a lot more of in other readers soon.

If you are subscribed to more then one RSS feed and one of the feed entries contains a link to one of your other feeds entries then SharpReader detects the link and creates a nice tree like structure linking the entries together. Kind of like trackback but done with RSS feeds. I love this feature, it helps me see who has links to any of my entries.

Now, if only everybody could get RSS feeds for their sites….

    So who reckons I’m lying then? 😀
    Seriously, that’s a pretty cool feature in SharpReader. Only thing is, if it’s detecting a link between posts you’re already tracking, then chances are you already know about the link. That said, if this kind of functionality was available on a larger scale, say in an aggregating site, that would be really nifty.

    Never mind. I need to learn to take in Julian’s subject lines… 😉
