Ed Dale Loves Dudes!

Listening to Ed Dale talk about all things Web 2.0 today, got me thinking a bit about where I’ve been going to on the net to keep up to date myself. Out of all the blogs I read, tech sites I visit, and forums I frequent (I don’t post Frank, just visit), I realised what source I actually got most of my current apps I use from.
Seth Godin, who long time readers will know I revere like no other, has a Web 2.0 Traffic Watch List at Alexaholic. He hasn’t had it updated since August this year, but if you go check it out and have a look through what’s there, you’ll simply be amazed. I lost a whole day with this site a few months back, but damn if I didn’t find a LOT of useful tools and apps here. Go check it out, but only when you have a few hours to kill, you won’t regret it.

Seth Godin’s Web 2.0 Traffic Watch List

Watch This Space

If you’ve been following my semi-coherent ramblings for any length of time, you’ll know I’m a big fan of Seth Godin. Also, if you’ve been in the internet marketing game for any length of time you’ll be more than familiar with Alexa rankings. Well let me give you the best of both worlds. Seth has set up a Traffic Watch List on Alexa. What makes this list different is this list is all about sites that encourage collaboration and social networking. In Seth’s words…

For our purposes, my definition is that most of these companies are, as the wikipedia

says, sites that “let people collaborate and share information online

in a new way.” So, Google doesn’t make the cut, because most of their

traffic comes to their search engine. eBay is an “old” company, but the

many-to-many nature of the site means that they do.

Go have a look and I’ll guarantee you’ll bookmark this one.
