The nature of the Blogosphere determines that the majority of bloggers are only connected with a small number of fellow bloggers, and similar bloggers can be largely disconnected from each other. Aggregating them allows for cost-effective personalized services, targeted marketing, and exploration of new business opportunities. As most bloggers have only a small number of adjacent bloggers, the problem of aggregating similar bloggers presents challenges that demand novel algorithms of connecting the non-adjacent due to the fragmented distributions of bloggers.
