Websites round-up

This week-end I came upon some interesting websites. I also read some websites for a long time now. As Lee thought too, I figured you guys might find them useful and/or subscribe or read them:

  1. WebShotsPro – A free website thumbnail/screenshot Service (since the Alexa thumbnails are gone).
  2. Washingtonpost’s Blogroll – The blogroll is an index on the washingtonpost.com homepage that promotes bloggers who are participating in a partnership with the advertising team of WPNI. If you are a blogger or blog network looking to expand your readership and advertising, their blogroll program can be the boost you’ve been looking for. If someone gets in WP’s blogroll, please drop me an e-mail and tell me how did that work for you :)
  3. Meneame.net – Spain’s Digg-alike social website. Having a PR7 on the index page and 1889 Alexa rank, it’s one of the most popular websites on the world. Apparently some spanish dude dugg my Google Secrets, part two post there. I got about 2000 referrers from that website with only 51 votes (imagine if the story had 300-400 votes, aka “diggs”). So it’s more powerfull than the Netscape social network (which never sent me more than 1500 visits). Please don’t abuse them. Yigg, a german social news website is also interesting.
  4. Corporate acquisitions made by Yahoo!, since 1997 – As the link says, an article that can be found in Wikipedia.
  5. Drew Meyers – Drew Meyers’s blog. Who’s he ? Remember my Yahoo! has partnered with Zillow post ? Well, the guy works at Zillow, and writes about interesting stuff.
  6. Shimon Sandler – The blog of a DaniWeb moderator. He wrote a must-read interview with Greg Hartnett (from BOTW).
  7. GO2WEB20 – An uber-cool directory of the most visually and technically savvy web 2.0 websites. Update: The beautiful Orli Yakuel has a blog too.
  8. Grayhat News, Blackhat SEO and some Blackhat SEO blog picks – Very interesting information and tools there.
  9. Matt Cutts – Apparently he’s some new engineer at Google. He writes interesting stuff about the different technical parts of Google.
  10. MIT’s Technology Review (and the blog) – Technology Review is published by Technology Review Inc., an independent media company owned by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The oldest technology magazine in the world (est. 1899), it aims to promote the understanding of emerging technologies and to analyze their commercial, social, and political impacts.
  11. SEO Scoop – Donna Fontenot’s (aka DazzlinDonna) blog. A Search Engine Roundtable Moderator
  12. Digg Card – Your Digg business card on your website. For every passionate digger.

  1. You appeared in meneame.net because you first hit the frontpage in digg. It’s easier to be in meneame if you write in Spanish and it’s very hard abuse them. Actually, users who submit their own sites are bad considerated.

    So, if you mainly write in English the first option to promote a story still is digg.

  2. Hi Cristian Mezei,

    I just discovered a new travelling site: tripcart.com

    TripCart is a new company that provides a planning trips community for USA travelers.

    It includes all the regions and attraction you are looking for.

    Thought you’d be interested to visit…

    Cu :)

  3. Hi Cristian

    I hope you were joking about Matt Cuts. He is the main guy behing the google search spam filtering. He is the guy that makes sure we do not get porn in the search reults, aka Porn Cookie guy

  4. Matt Cuts blog is great, it gives a lot of information about SEO issues. Also if you read the comments of the blog – there are a lot of fruitful discussions there. Plus i think it’s cute that he also writes a bit about his personal life..
