Show off your favorite blogs with a Blog List

Today we���re releasing a new page element for Layouts blogs: Blog List. The Blog List improves on our Link List page element by using blogs��� RSS and Atom feeds to show update times, post titles, and snippets.

Use a Blog List to put a blogroll in your sidebar, or make a few to categorize the blogs you read. The Blog List works well for any page that has an RSS or Atom feed, so you can get creative: link to news sites, podcasts, Twitter streams, search results, or anything else with a feed.

Here���s a quick summary of the features that a Blog List gives you:

Link to blogs, web pages, and feeds from your blog���s sidebar, with an optional favicon

For pages with RSS and Atom feeds, Blog List can show last updated time, post title, and a snippet of the latest post

Sort links alphabetically or by last update time
Show all links, or hide some behind a ���show all��� link

Import subscriptions from Google Reader

Blog List links are visible to search engine crawlers, so your blog���s PageRank and reputation flow to those you link to
