I’ve been waiting to get my hands on an invite code for the new Toluu service which is currently in Beta and looking oh so sweet. I should be getting my invite within the next few days and with that comes an invite for 3 other people, so if you’re interested get in touch with me and I’ll be sure to send one your way. Toluu is an RSS news site that organizes the feeds you love, and after getting to know your reading habits, it will feed your more news from sources that are very similar in taste. The site already has been growing at a rapid rate and has tens of thousands of indexed pages in Google, a nice page rank of 6 and a bunch of inbound links. The feed/news pages you can create are all do follow which is great for a link, but it also looks so good you might not want to leave the spot! They have done an excellent job with the look and feel of the site, and adding feeds could not have been done easier. This is a great resource to build links if you have a “quality content” site as well bring in readers that are truely interested in your niche. If you want to keep up on how the development is going they have a Toluu Blog which is updated regularly with indepth updates on what’s going on. I’ll leave you with a link to a Toluu page for the user nerdflood so you can see just how the feeds are layed down.
I just discovered Read Burner as a new place to drop relevant links. It looks like Pligg, and smells like Pligg, but it isn’t. Read Burner analysis current hot topics and trends based on certain factors and the latest news gets spat out to the site. If you want to see what kind of topics and sites are making the rounds they provide open stats you can view. For all your folks with nice phones you can view a mobile version as well which is what I’ve been tuning into all day from my iPhone.

With an increasing amount of news consumption taking place in RSS readers and personalized start pages versus traditional web sites, ReadBurner aggregates the most frequently shared content from these next generation services to determine what’s popular.
