I ran my own blog from November 2006 till October 2014. All posts are still online, but I don't have time to update it anymore. Please note that all images and media files have been removed when the backup was moved to a new host in early 2016. Enjoy!
Last weekend I launched a new web service, it's called "Joopita" and it's basically a free web directory and serach engine that uses both computer analysis and human input to calculate page rankings. You can submit your own website or blog as well as any other website, and it uses a quite new way to rank pages depending on human input.
The ranking technique works as follows: When submitting a site you'll have to enter a (valid) e-mail address, and depending on the input you provide your e-mail address will be ranked too. The more (good) sites you add and the more detailed information you provide, the better your e-mail address will be ranked, as well as all sites linked to this e-mail address.
It's still more or less some kind of a weird experiment, and I hope I'll be able to provide some information about the reliability of the algorithm in the near future.
