Although we only approve good quality websites we know that a lot of people like to submit to CSS showcase sites and Flash portfolios to gain a bit of traffic and links from search engines. It’s a great idea and often, if you get onto the homepage of one of the popular showcase sites you can have a new site indexed in a matter of days. We’ve found that our other sites can gain hundreds of visits in a matter of days from CSS galleries.

Why not take this further and add a comment to your submission? Our simple comments system allows you to add more about your site, tell people why it’s good, why they should vote for your site and why it should be number 1. Those comments are readable by search engines so a good discussion can turn a single page with a description about your site into a page full of keywords and links back to your site.

On 101 Best Websites we also have a simple bookmarking widget to allow you to add your site page to various social networks and bookmarking sites. It doesn’t take long to gain momnetum and push a simple submission of a great site into a campaign to promote not only your design but also your site, company or product.

And remember all of our approved submissions get listed on our RSS feed and Twitter page: http://twitter.com/101bestwebsites

We now have over 1500 Twitter followers who get notified of every new release on 101 Best Websites!

Our current number 1

With a rating of 4.3/5 and an impressive 38 votes, SavvyAuntie.com has jumped to the top of our list and looks set to stay there for the next few days at least.

Now, we weren’t entirely sure what the site was all about so we thought it would be worth taking a look:

It’s simple. Moms and dads have their own sites. There’s like a galaxy of them. And sure, they’re packed with great information, but we just don’t feel at home there. It feels like we’re trespassing or something. SavvyAuntie.com is for us. Sure, Aunties who are also Moms are more than welcome. This club is inclusive of all women who love kids and want the very best for them.

For a site that’s only been running a few months it’s certainly got a busy community and lots of media exposure, sadly with us both being uncles I’m not sure we’re entirely welcome! But there are plenty of ideas for days out, activities and other articles on child care and advice.

From a technical point of view, there isn’t too much to criticise either – although I am quite surprised that the H1 tag only contains the word “logo”! Perhaps some more focus on the html/css and accessibility? 🙂
