The BlogIntelligence portal is the last step in a long history of research and scientific work on the upcoming topic and media phenomena of weblogs. For years, there have been high-effort research activities on how to index and examine the blogosphere. This project shows, by way of example, in which perspectives the entirety of weblogs can be analyzed and visualized in order to extract valuable aggregated information.
