Blog Clue on Thanet

Blog Clue ( is a cross between a wiki and a search engine. Much like the more famous examples you can use it's URL structure to point tags at. Tags (in case you have been living under a rock) are a way of marking blog posts (and other things).

To qualify for the the link URL must be the same text as the linked text from the last slash to the end. Lots of sites have suitable structures media wiki installations like the wikipedia are one such example. Blog Clue is another.

The page for was, until today, lacking a reasonable write up. Even after my modest attempts I am sure there is more that can be said. Therefore I am going to make it a minor mission of mine to encourage my fellow Thanet bloggers to make the listing the best that there is.

Part of that is getting your blog listed within the , , , , and etc. pages on To do this you simply need to use relevant tags to get your posts listed. Easy when you know how.

However, if you don't know how it can be a nightmare. So over the next few weeks I will be looking at the issues of tagging and getting listed in such sites. I may even throw in some hints and tips on how to get extra mileage from it all.

Getting listed is not all there is to it however. It just happens to be the really really easy part. Being a wiki you, me and the guy next door can all take part in editing the pages that matter most. That is what is so special about wikis.

Some people say that WIKI stands for What I Know Is. It is not actually true (wiki means quick) but it is a good way to explain the community joint effort that makes them so powerful. I just happen to think that the entries for Thanet and the surrounding issues should be extra good.
