Fine, I’m sold on it. I know I’m not the first to say it, but as someone who’s been a huge cheerleader for the search space for years now, it feels a bit more like a confession.
A few cases in point:
- The rumor mill says eBay acquires StumbleUpon. Read Pete Cashmore’s 8 Reasons Why at Mashable. I still don’t get why this site is so popular. TechCrunch cites comScore numbers that SU’s up to 6 million pageviews a month.
- Google’s adding a discovery feature into its new toolbar to send you to recommended sites based on your search history.
- Two words: Aggregate Knowledge. I met with them when I was out West and they’re solving some very real issues with the web. Like, why do I still have such a hard time finding Mother’s Day gifts no matter how hard I search? More on that another time. I’m looking forward to hearing what Paul Martino has to say at the Search Insider Summit next month.
