Blogdigger announces beta release of Blogdigger Local : lawyers can enter local discussion

bd_logo_sm.gifThe Blog Herald reports Blogdigger is introducing, in beta, Blogdigger Local. As things progress on blogs and RSS, lawyers will benefit from being part of local discussions just as they network socially in the offline world now.

Blogdigger is a Blog and RSS search engine. Blogdigger Local, initialy to cover 50,000 unique cities/states and zip codes, categorizes blogs and news feeds by geographic location, allowing users to find, view, and subscribe to blog and news content published in and around their location of choice. Per Greg Gershman, President of Blogdigger:

It is well known that Weblogs have created a global conversation, on a global scale, but conversations are happening at a local level as well, and Blogdigger Local does the job of identifying those conversations and in order to bring people together on a community level. Whether it’s citizens journalism, grass-roots media, or just personal opinion, Blogdigger Local connects participants in new and useful ways.

The Herald also reports Blogdigger has also partnered with Whizspark Corporation, an online event marketing service, to provide location-based advertisements for events in location-targeted search results.

LexBlog Tip: Search for some blogs in your metro area or state. Find some that may be commenting on news, social issues or better yet, areas in which you practice. Subscribe to some of their feeds. You may even find reporters and columnists from local newspapers and other main stream media sources. When the opportunity arises, blog about something they write about, click the link – they’ll see it in their traffic logs or via PubSub, Technorati etc. When appropriate, add a comment on a post on their blog and leave your blog url and email. You’ll be seen by the blog publisher and their readers. Drop people you see an email from to time giving them ‘atta boy or atta girl’ for doing a great job.
