Artiklz launched the beta of its conversation search engine for public yesterday, 6 Jan 2009. The service collects comments from popular commenting & blogging platforms and several services, such as Digg, Reddit, FriendFeed, Delicious, etc., and dishes them out through a single search engine.
The service could go extremely popular among the people who like commenting & blogging online. It's the service similar to the services offered by companies like Crunchies finalist BackType and uberVU, but it's going to be a dedicated comment search engine that will facilitate its users to catch and understand content and tone of conversations across social media easily.
Now, the users need not visit every web service offering comments separately, instead they can go to this search engine to search and find out what's being said or what so ever.
Artiklz conversation search engine also offers one location for center discussion on blog posts. Through the Artiklz service, a blogger get notifications by e-mail, SMS, IM or a web interface, whenever there is news comment made on his/her writing or any given service. It enables a blogger to add to his/her blog, a badge that gives readers the choice to notify the blogger when he/she posts a new article. It helps a reader to leave a comment on a given post, and it helps a blogger track a specific individual's comments.
