Google just bought Pyra. Or, to put it in clearer terms, Google just bought Blogger. I, um, yeah.
The bad speculation is that Blogger posts will get indexed in more or less real time. I suspect that won’t happen, because there are certain technological barriers in the way, but it might. It seems more than likely that Blogger will at least be used for page discovery.
The catch-22 is that either Google intends to take advantage of synergies, which would seem liable to give Blogger users an advantage in search results, or Google just bought Pyra cause they’re doing cool things, which is not the sort of thing a canny dot com should be doing. One shouldn’t get an advantage on the search page just because one’s using a certain tool. Well, time will tell.
