Blog – or more correctly – feed search engine Feedster is going through a makeover which will include better handling of languages around the world, says founder Scott Johnson at SES Chicago. He revealed he had spent most of 2005 writing code to remove spam – but alongside that had found time to write language detection into the Feedster web crawl.
I asked Scott how the language detection would work for a blog in multiple languages – such as Multilingual Search – and Scott advised using local domains for better targeting – but also ensuring that the language field in the feed is set to the correct language.
The new Feedster is to roll out at 5pm on Friday.
