SE Roundtable [seroundtable.com] spotted a message from Google spokesman Jeremy Hylton about an improvement to their Blog Search algorithm:

We have launched a ranking change that reduces the number of results that are returned because of blogroll matches. There are still problems to work out, but this change appears to be a big improvement over our earlier fix.

I hope this fix also takes care of the Google Alerts problem that blogrolls have had. It's been aggrivating to click on an Alert link only to find that the only relevance on the linked page is a blogroll entry.
