    Hi guys. I am working on building an autoblog, http://superhottopics.com/

    I am attempting to create a Yahoo pipe that will extract the top terms from http://www.google.com/trends and then turn around and display the top articles of those terms from http://blogsearch.google.com/.

    There are a bunch of http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipes.popular over on Yahoo Pipes that almost do what I mentioned, but not quite.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    :D

    How could you get full content from different blogs because they are different in formatting and themes.I find its hard to reformat the content so it suit ur needs.Well guess i'll experiment this for the week.I'll let u guys know the progress later.Right now i manage to scrape google trends keyword and find any blog related to the keyword such as Brittany Murphy Dead.The problem is for me to find out where suppose i start cut the content in order to make it full feed.

    (Just thinking out loud.) Maybe, I should give this Yahoo pipe thing a try. I can aggregate all my blogs there.

    I just created my first couple of pipes and I think that this Yahoo web service looks promising. And it seems (hush hush), it's not yet colonized or saturated. I just got myself a really great URL for my pipes.

    Lesson learned today: Try anything once. You might get a pleasant surprise. This is serendipity.

    I've been fooling with pipes for months now; and I got the basics down pat. But to really make this things dance like Webmaster said... To "go here and do this" and then "return here and do that" and while your there " go back out to flickr and do this"... You really need to understand regex, and loops and strings and chit.

    But it's off of the chain though, I just can't make it dance. BTW what language is that? PERL, C#, etc.?
