Microsoft plans search site for Weblogs

Microsoft became the first big Internet company Friday to say that it would create a special search Web site just for Weblogs.

The company said MSN Blogbot will debut in the first half of the year, along with MSN Newsbot, a search site devoted to news.

The service will not index all blogs, just the ones that MSN determines provide the most useful information, a company official said.

“We will look at credibility and popularity to get people the information they’re looking for,” said Karen Redetzki, a product manager for MSN. “There are some blogs that may not be relevant to people. Those blogs we may
never index.”


So, how will Microsoft/MSN Blogbot determine what’s credible, or useful, or relevant?
