Server issues

Tuesday, October 14th, 2008

Due to heavy traffic we’ve had to move servers, but made the mistake of ordering a managed server from 1and1!

Unfortunately it’s heavily restricted and doesn’t run MySQL 5.  We’ve managed to adjust all the code to run on MySQL 4, but there are a couple of problems left over which we are working to resolve with the server guys.

For the time being, we are unable to accept any new submissions, please accept our apologies for this and try again tomorrow.

After several emails and comments from our users, we have developed a comments module so you can now add your comments to each site we feature!

You’ll need to be logged in to leave a comment, but once registered you can leave comments on any of our growing +101 family sites.

Keep them clean!

One US State to go! – (Mississippi)

Saturday, September 27th, 2008

Looking back through the stats over the last month and following on from my blog the other week about hitting every state in the US, we’ve got one last one to go!!!  Come on Mississippi!

Let’s see if we can fill in that last blank with MS 🙂

Rank numbering

Saturday, September 20th, 2008

After a lull in development over the last few weeks (we’ve been a bit busy with other stuff!), we added in the essential ranking that people have been asking for.  

Now you can see the rank of the sites where ever you are.  Number one in each category/topic has pride of place at the top of the page with a nice big image and then each subsequent entry has it’s ranking displayed under the box on the left.

After just six weeks our traffic and interest in the site has soared!  We’re really pleased with the results so far and thanks to everyone for the positive feedback.  

We’ve now attained an alexa rank of 126,908 and a three month average of 187,796.  The site’s been creeping in and out of the top 100,000 for a few weeks which is really great, but as we all know, alexa ranking isn’t that exact.

Our traffic is increasing exponentially too, around 200 absolute unique visits and 1000 page views a day.

Keep submitting those sites!

Alexa rank under 100,000!

Monday, August 25th, 2008

One month in and we’ve managed to creep up in Alexa to around 80,000!

Not bad for a new site! Lots of people are now voting and submitting and we are getting very good reactions around the internet.

Alexa ranking may not mean much, but still, it’s nice to see!

CSS fights!

Wednesday, August 20th, 2008

We had a very interesting submission today, site fighting at its best!

Pagination complete

Thursday, August 7th, 2008

Since our weekend of hard work we’ve got a long list of improvements to make with the site now live which we are slowly filtering through.

The first of which is getting the pagination sorted so you can browse through the 101 best websites for each category and topic.

The pagination is now complete and we’ll be putting in more and more improvements as time goes by, the next will be using tags to create lists of 101 for each one and of course the all important voting system, which is about half complete!

Take a look through our growing libraries of sites; we’ve already had a great response and lots of people are submitting their sites into the system, why don’t you do the same and get a jump on everyone else before we start getting lots more submissions!
