Brought to you by NewsMob

Today I googled my blog's name with the search words Sudan and Darfur but did not find much. Has Google done something about weblogs appearing in searches? Curiously, I did find this page at NewsMob. Note the Ads by Google.

I have no idea how the page came about. But it has given me an idea. Maybe I could use this as a "category" folder for my posts on the Sudan, so each topic is conveniently listed in a separate page. This BlogSpot does not have categories, but NewsMob makes it simple to refer back and click into previous posts on a subject. This blog does have a Google search in the sidebar that brings up a list of posts on any given subject, but NewsMobs seems to be more accurate. NewsMob is owned by ToGoSolo. Here is their description and an interesting paragraph on mobile web sites that can be read even without a mobile internet connection.

The Mobile Web Site

Use the Mobile Web Site, to carry with you. The Mobile Web Site allows you to read content anytime/anywhere - even without a mobile internet connection. If you have a Palm or other portable device capable of browsing the Internet, or reading off-line content, you can access their Mobile Web Site at You may browse NewsMob, but to take full advantage of NewsMob, including the ability to create your own list of favorite Channels, you need to Register (for Free) or Login.
