More Public Aggregators from India
The launch of MyToday has created increased activity in the public aggregator space. Bharat1 and eNewss are the ones that have caught my eye recently. These sites are very much identical in content (as they syndicate most of the popular Indian MSM sites), but try to differentiate themselves through the layout / presentation. One wonders whether the space is so big for so many public aggregators to bloom. The MyToday team has put together an extensive reading list comprising some of the best MSM resources from India and elsewhere. In that sense MyToday is comprehensive and also has an early mover advantage. Bharat1's layout is quite cool as it allows you to drag and drop the various boxes based on your preference. Among these three, eNewss is the only one which has turned to Google Adsense to generate money. eNewss offers all its content under its main page and has categorized blogs according various broad topics so that readers can use that as a guidance when they look for specific content. Another public aggregator which is still in its infancy stage is India47. I'm sure all these sites are going to spruce up their content and layout based on constructive feedback from the readers.
