Help for sportscasters searching news about college sports team, player or coach

As college basketball season heats up, you may be looking for more stories about the area team. One way to keep your finger on the pulse of discussion out there is to search blogs.

BLOGS: Technorati is a search engine for blogs. You can search by the name in a blog title, or better yet, search for blog posts (just click the right term next to the search box).

Remember to put a name in quotes, such as “John Calipari.” When I search that term I find a number of mentions on a blog called “Bleacher Report.”

It calls itself an independent sports site, and Technorati gives it an authority score of 742 (on a 1000 point max scale).  You can read more about how the score is compiled, but its based on the site’s influence and standing, showing this one is pretty good.

If you have a little more time, try some key words in Globe of Blogs or look there for blogs in your location about which you may not be familiar.

Check back tomorrow for some great ways to filter tweets to pull up ones about your team or coach.
