Automated Content Aggregation

Here is a way to create Content Aggregator-

1) Create a Google Alert for keywords (like say MapReduce and Hadoop)


2) Create a free blog and enable the Auto Post by Email Feature (using manage my blogs in Settings- Reading in Left Bottom Margin). This creates an email with random numbers that can enable you for sending emails and thus auto posting.

3) Create an Email Filter in your Gmail Account to auto forward this to the post by Email Account

Note you can thus create an auto aggregator and pick and choose for creating a Keyword specific or domain specific newsletter. It is all free and takes 15 minutes to set up, and is then automated.

Here is an example of querying for the word analysis and the images that come in.

Compare these results with the free results in Google Image Search and you can see that it is definitely worth a dekko given the very low prices that are checked here and the multiple websites that are listed.
