Not something I plan to talk about a whole lot, the Blogger/Google thing, because this quote may just sum it up entirely:

Google lives or dies on fresh links - and processing the million or so weblogs will give them an awful lot of fresh links a day. No matter where you host your Blogger based blog, the posting will still go through a machine on Google's network: it'd be easy peasy to scrap each posting for URLs and add them to the spider-now list. Not every link, perhaps, but if a certain number of bloggers link to the same thing in a certain time, Google grabs it. It's a distributed early warning system for Google's spiders. One million monitors just signed on to Google's staff. A bargain for them, whatever the cost.
