Typical search engines are best at finding content that other people are interested in. winnowTag works by finding content that you’re interested in.
Begin understanding winnowTag by using public tags other users have created. Then create your own tags, to really see what winnowTag can do.
You create your own tag by tagging a few items that are examples of a topic you find interesting. You give that tag any name that’s meaningful to you. (The name you choose doesn’t affect how the tag works.)
Then, among the half million items in over 7,000 feeds during the past three months, winnowTag finds items for you. The winnowTagged items fit the topic of each tag, as defined by the examples you chose for that tag, ready for you to read at the click of a tag’s name. New items are presented as they are published.
You can read any item within winnowTag. And you can easily click out to the original item or its source.
Also, for every tag, winnowTag creates a feed of the items found by that tag. So you can read a tag’s items with any feed reader, or republish them in your own website.
