Blog meta search has to figure out how to identify blog posts vs. web pages. Here's a beta service from Blogstreet.

Blogs are different. They are made of blog-posts and not web-pages. So they have to be treated differently. The correct units when dealing with blogs are the blog-posts and their permalinks. Blog Post Analysis (BPA) is an attempt in building a platform for blog analytics by identifying and presenting the fundamental units of blogs, the blog-post.
Maybe Veer can sell it to Google so they can filter blog posts. ;-)

"When blog tools like news indexes, link trackers and search engines treat them as websites; they assume that the content they have found on a blog's homepage will remain there. Which of course doesn't happen"

Before blogs became more mainstream this happened regardless. I know when I taught classes and would do research for lesson plans I was referred to plenty of inactive or missing pages/sites.
I haven't researched near enough this debate of if blogs should be withdrawn from the search engines like google to know what the exact argument is but I do feel the problem is being put more on blogs then the fact that maybe search engines need to be fine tuned a little more so it doesn't bring up websites (regardless of if they are blogs or not) that are irrelevant or no longer accessible. Just my late night input :)

Sorry can't sleep Joi in design mode and needed a break and actually had time to read some of the more geeky articles :P

happy days to you babee!

Looks like my trackback pinging went haywire. MT didn't get an ack to clear the TB link from the entry. I'm sorry for the confusion. Please delete the TBs as you see fit.

I only hope Google will find his way to tell apart blog stuff and real pages, it's getting annoying a bit
