Bloglines Web Services Aims To Solve Major Blog Problem
One issue operators of blogs face is that all those people out there accessing their RSS feeds can really eat up bandwidth and make your web hosting unaffordable. Bloglines has always been very good at helping ease the problem, by making it so that Bloglines accesses all the RSS feeds for all of its customers, meaning the thousands of Bloglines users only count as one user in terms of RSS scraping. Now, other RSS readers can access Bloglines RSS cache through Bloglines Web Services, further increasing the number of computers that aren't downloading the same RSS feeds over and over again. Bloglines aims to have most RSS traffic go through them, instead of John Q. Webhosting. Great idea, and a great service, guys!
