In December 2016 we unveiled the first iteration of the Blog Trackr app. Powered by the Alchemy API we were able to allow users to input their blog URL, and receive a customized newsfeed. This was initially based on the keywords in your blog posts.
It looked a little something like this:
It was a solid beta, though I thought we could do better. And I thought, quite frankly, you deserved a lot more. That’s why we reworked the Blog Trackr app. We perfected the machine behind it to bring better results based on your post content, topic, and emotional index rather than just keywords. These won’t just be slightly similar results, or a somewhat customized newsfeed. It will be a perfectly customized newsfeed, and it’s completely automated. That’s right. The articles you want at the click of a button.
We’re also planning on creating a custom Twitter news stream based on the keywords in your posts, giving you a birds eye view of what’s going on in your market. Not only will you receive the articles you should be writing about, you’ll get to see what’s happening on social media that you should be responding to.
Right now we’ve got it looking a little something like this:
I’m extremely excited by what I’ve been seeing since our first beta. And I truly feel that the next iteration of the Blog Trackr app will be something you will remember and find useful in boosting out your blog.
As great as it’s looking now though, this is just the beginning. Thank you for going along for the ride this far, as we’ve got so much further to go. I hope you like the next version and test it out on its release data (still working on this!).
Be prepared though, this is just the start. We’re going to be rolling out plenty of updates, new features, and continue to polish this off throughout 2017. Ultimately we plan to release a chrome extension, as well as mobile app so you can take your news on the go. But for now, we want this perfect because you deserve an app that is perfect.
By the end of the year I think you’ll have your new favorite assistant helping you take your blog to the top. In fact, I think it’ll be the best tool in your blogging belt.
