San Francisco start-up TailRank, another site that tries to sort through thousands of blogs to bring us the most interesting posts, has made some improvements from when we last looked at it last year (here and here)

TailRank spiders 35,000 weblogs (soon aiming for 50,000) trying to find highly linked and discussed links and citations. Once TailRank discovers something important, it promotes it to the main website.

Kevin Burton is Founder and CEO of TailRank. The company competes against Digg, Memeorandum, Tinfinger and Blogniscient.

Others, including Scoble and Michael Arrington (see Michael’s post at Techcrunch for how TailRank differs from the others) have noticed too.
