Mashable’s TailRank and Techmeme Competitor, Mashtracker

Pete Cashmore has been on a roll lately. Aside from the new user interface for Mashable, Pete has introduced Mashcodes, a website dedicated to widgets and games for MySpace, Friendster, Piczo, Xanga, and hi5 implementation. Now Cashmore has taken the idea of Techmeme and TailRank (discussion tracking and consolidation) and integrated the software into his blog. The idea is called Mashtracker.

The way that Mashtracker works is by taking discussions from all over the web that relate to articles published by Mashable and adds the discussions on other websites below. Some of the websites that have common discussions with Mashable posts, thus appear on Mashtracker includes Pulse 2.0 and TechCrunch. This software was developed in parternship with Megite.

    Anytime :-) I really like the purpose behind the idea. Trackbacking and discussing has really become a confusing process with all the spam that is being added on blogs. Consolidating information is key.
