My site hasn’t been added to the list

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

We get quite a lot of submissions to 101 Best Websites and we go through every single one to make sure that our showcase only contains the highest quality sites.

For CSS sites we check the code: Is it standards compliant? Are there errors? Are there any unnecessary tables used for layout? Although we like to see high quality designs, sometimes the best CSS sites have a very simple structure and semantic HTML coding that works best.

With a Flash site it can be more tricky – we have to look at the design: does it feel modern and high-quality? Is the Flash built in a high quality fashion? We want to see smooth animations, new use of images and a functional site.

We try to add sites we feel are up to standard within a couple of days. If your site hasn’t been added to the showcase it might be worth taking a look at how it’s built and seeing if there’s any way to improve the HTML or CSS.

We always like to hear of ways you think that 101 Best Websites can be improved, let us know any ideas you have for the next version!

100,000 visitors reached!

Since we launched last year we’ve been very busy on various other projects but have always tried to make sure 101 Best Websites was kept up to date and full of new and inspiring websites. The aim of building the site was to make it one of the premier design showcase sites on the web featuring the best CSS and Flash designs.

And now, just 11 months since we put the site live we have reached a milestone:

Over 100,00 visitors.

Over 500,000 Pageviews.

Over the last few months we have been developing a newer, faster version of the 101 Best Websites software which we will be releasing as soon as we have a few days spare to test and put live.

We’ll be shouting about it again, maybe another weekender!

Some of the features include:

  • Better voting system
  • Multiple images for each website
  • Improved search
  • Working pagination up to the 101st site
  • Improved registration and user area

Let us know if there’s anything you’d like to see on the site and we will add it to our ever growing list of things to do to the site.

We’re very pleased that so many people like our site and use it regularly, we want to make 101 Best Websites the number one web design showcase site.

Six months since launch – new ideas needed!

Sunday, February 8th, 2009

Can you believe we’ve had this site up and running for six months now? We can’t! Six months of 101 Best Websites. We’ve been so busy working on other projects and just popping on here to approve submissions and check everything is going ok that the time has just flown past.

And there’s still stuff we haven’t managed to cram in – so much for our “Build a web app in 48 hours”, this is turning into the longest 48 hours ever. But, we have some time coming up in the next couple of months that we’re going to dedicate to fixing a few issues and adding some features to this site:

  • Getting the comments/SEO reports/rankings styled up a bit better
  • Getting the rankings to work!
  • Sorting out the pagination
  • Only allowing 101 sites in each category to appear (the original purpose of the site)

We’re also planning to get a few other ideas for improvements and that’s where we need some help… What would you improve or add to the site? Or even off the site: a facebook app or iPhone app to add/vote for sites. Would you like to see a little gadget to add to your site to show off your position on 101 Best Websites?

Any and all ideas welcome.
