TalkDigger - everyone's favourite blog tracker tracker - has updated with a useful facility which gives link count output as plain text. I asked Fred for this feature and he put it in over the weekend (thanks Fred!)
It allows you to simply cut and paste the results of a search for simpler inclusion in blogs.
Here are sample results for a search on www.instapundit.com:
bloglines: 0, technorati: 0, pubsub: 2,020, icerocket: 0, feedster: 9,217, blogpulse: 14,113, msnsearch: 600,939, google: 80,900, blogdigger: 0.
(Fred might want to be a little more lenient with timeouts...)
