Webdigity’s web design gallery gets pagerank 5

Standard

This is the first pagerank update since the web design gallery‘s birth, and the gallery got pagerank 5.

I guess that will bring more spam to our community, but also more valuable submittions to the gallery.

Webdigity offers advertising packages

Standard

The packages are :

Community donation

This is like a common donation, but in addition we offer a permanent link and a special budge in the forums to those who are donating. You can seek more information or order here .

Forum homepage sponsorship

As the title indicates this is an offer for search engine friendly links. The “product” is a link from the site’s homepage, and the forum homepage. Prices and more information can be found here .

Topic sponsorship ads

This is a new way of advertising, and I think that we are the first forum to offer something like that. The concept is simple : you buy permanent links from forum topics. This way you can get very targeted – in terms of SEO – incoming links to your site, with a fixed one time payment. You can order topic sponsorship ads from here

DZone reaches 500,000 clicks monthly

Standard

It seems that the developer social network DZone is having success, and I think it deserve it, as it is one of the best services for developers and the only social network for them.

If you don’t know this site, then I can say that it is a site like digg, that has development related content (databases, php, python, .net, java, etc.) People can submit and vote for stories, and the top rated stories are displayed in the front page.

For more information check their blog here.

The future of search engines. Time for a new Google

Standard

After Yahoo bought del.icio.us in December, deli now jumped from 300,000 to 1,000,000 members! I think that’s a good growth rate, but I have one question:

Why Yahoo is not monetizing this site yet? Maybe del.icio.us stands for a later bigger project or something? I guess we will get the answer in the future…

But as mentioned here :

Joshua made an interesting distinction. Instead of finding information a la Google, social search is about finding knowledge. The idea is how do you connect with the information you need in a context that’s knitted together by people and by human expertise, rather than the linear way we do it now, which is to type a search term into a box.

It seems that what I thought before some months is real and is about to happen soon. What is this? A search engine powered by social network data. Think of it, it could be a great search engine, and best of all spam free as the rankings would come from the users.

My opinion is that stumbleupon could do this right, but it seems that del.icio.us is going for it right now.
