YackTrack Gets Updated, Adds Chatter

At the end of April, we covered the launch of YackTrack, a new tool that helps fight the conversation fragmentation issues. The service provides a method for tracking the conversations taking place around your content. You just enter a URL and it searches sites like Digg, Disqus, FriendFeed, Mixx, StumbleUpon, Technorati, and WordPress to find who is saying what.

Features Added After Launch

In addition to the service itself provided by the web site, YackTrack’s creator, Rob Diana of Regular Geek quickly responded to user feedback and added a YackTrack bookmarklet, a suggestion that our very own Marshall Kirkpatrick proposed in the comments of the post.

Another feature that was quickly added was a YackTrack link that bloggers could include on each of their blog posts. This idea came from Colin Walker.

What’s New

YackTrack has now received another update. Besides scouring the web for comments on service like Digg, Disqus, FriendFeed, Mixx, StumbleUpon, Technorati, and WordPress, YackTrack’s URL search now includes Blogger/Blogspot searches as well as Google Blog Search. Also, FriendFeed search results now include what service generated the result.

However, the big news in this update is yhe new feature on YackTrack called “Chatter,” which now has its own tab on the site. This feature is a bit different than the standard YackTrack URL search. Instead, Chatter allows you to perform keyword searches on the social web. On Chatter, you can search Mixx, Technorati, Google Blog Search, FriendFeed, and Twitter (currently powered by Summize, but that will change in the future).

Finally, the YackTrack UI got a little refresh too, giving the site a cleaner, more professional look and feel.
