Dave,

Congrats! You were the first person to successfully make contact without using traditional communication methods.

Thanks for taking the time to write. I found your response by clicking on this link, 3 links from 2 sources.

This confirms that the Technorati Tag did not work with my tag, but I was able to find you through Technorati search on the links. Looks like something is not working in Technorati Tags.

XML Buttons and Search

As far as the subject goes of "Getting XML buttons into search engines," my goal is to simply let the world know what my view is, and I'll let the people in the know run with it.

If it is easy to implement, then I'm sure that it could be easily implemented by contacting the sites that ask search-engines to register, like Search Engine watch. They have a blog, and I think a developer's comment like, "I noticed this and think this is easy to do" would be welcome there.

If you think the idea has merit and is easy to do, perhaps you or some of the others reading this blog could contact Search Engine watch and work with the various developers to bring this all together.

I'm not interested in the technical details or an oversight plan to get this implemented. My goal is simply to provide developers with feedback on how their platforms are interfacing with the end-user.

At this juncture, unless I hear otherwise, I'll put you down as a "This is the guy to talk to that is coordinating with the developers and search engines to get this done."

Thanks again for your note and interest and I appreciate your taking the time to read my blog and post a response. If there are specific things you would like feedback on, feel free to outline your requirements.

Good luck!
