Today we added a 'bookmark' link to every entry (next to 'share') making it very easy for your visitors to save and tag the entry link to, if you don't yet know it, is a popular social bookmark/favorites sharing web2.0 type thingummy which was recently aquired by Yahoo. Its handy since now your visitors can quickly save the link to a specific fotopages entry and that link is also shared (and searchable) with other users.

More web 2.0 widgetry coming soon.

Multiple daily entries on fotopages and more..

Today we made some changes to fotopages which I think you will like.. we certainly had plenty of requests for these..

First of all you can now edit the date of existing entries - we often get members asking us to change dates on posts so now you can do it yourself anytime you want.

Second change is now you are no longer restricted to one entry per day! You can now post as many entries as you want and each entry will have the exact time of the entry, not just the date. Plus you can set the time/date of the entry to anything you want at the time of the post so you can make entries for the past and future.

More new fotopages features on the way soon..

New Support Forums for BoardTracker

Finally we got around to setting up our own support forums for BoardTracker!

We created forums for all types of BoardTracker users including regular users/searchers, board owners and developers who may like to build cool apps or board mods using BoardTracker api's.

Not much there yet since its new so join in and start posting if you have any BoardTracker related questions, suggestions or anything related to BoardTracker.

If you already have a BoardTracker account (user or board owner) then you use the same login details to access the forums.

See you there!

Live thread counter on boardtracker

We just made a funky little ajax widget thingy for BoardTracker which shows the number of threads and forums currently indexed and tracked and which updates in real time - go to and watch as it updates every few seconds.. nifty!

More cool web2.0 buzzword laden stuff coming soon..

SES - Second day

Chicago is still painfully cold..
Second day started slow and quiet. Expo hall showed little life at the beginning and moved to mild activity later on.
I met Darren Hohnson from Offermatica has a system for trying out different site layouts and changes, done dynamically, to your site, and tracking the effectiveness of each variation. The system allows you to try out different HTMLs, Images, or anything you want to change on your site, and tracks how well each one did. So, for example, if you have an eCommerce site, you can try placing different products on the index page and see which option converts the best or makes the most money. Alternatively, if you have a registration based site, you can try different layouts to see which one gets more people to signup. Etc... Very nice system, but I guess due to the price tag, it is relevant mainly to sites which have substantial earnings. If your site is such a site, it is worth a look.

The day ended with a Search-bash, organized by Daron and Brandy from (which if you are a webmaster, you MUST have in your bookmarks ). The party was great. Really. So, many thanks to Daron and Brandy and of course to the party sponsors: Bruce Clay Inc, PositionTech, TrueLocal and the New York Times
It was held in Buddy Guy's club near the hotel, and Buddy Guy himself gave a GREAT performance with his so very talanted band. It was truly a great night.

During the show I had the pleasure of chatting with Danny Sullivan (who is also the person that started the SES show) and Chris Sherman, both from SearchEngineWatch.

Went to sleep late enough, only to wake up in the morning to a snow blizzard covering the entire Chicago city with 4" or more of snow...

Overall, SES show was a good one. Looking forward to the NYC one in Feb/Mar 2006, and the UK one later on that year.
