  1. Thank you for the comment David, you also have a great blog at Multiligual-Search, but it’s so niche I couldn’t fit it into a general category. Which is actually a good thing and will benefit you all in the long run.

  2. That’s a really excellent list of links to a high quality websites in so many interessing subjects for webdesigners and seo beginners like me.

    Thank you so much for all this good intel and inteligent and usefull Pool.

    Merry Christmas to All!

  3. I like your site.
    Blogs with comments windows that you have to click to open keep the dialogue under wraps. Blogs like this one which string comments out in the open are much more proactive about sparking dialogue.

  4. Hello, i am new with internet and i am tring to make a blog but its very hard. If anyone knows where to get information about this i would really apritiate it.

  5. I am interested in doing internet business and in searching for information. Your blog have listed a very good resources for me. Thanks for the information. …..

  6. Some of the site I been there before ..lots of information there for newbie blogger like me..later will looks on other

  7. Thanks Loren for you site recommendations above. Kind of weird though to see a blogspot blog like being in the top list. But i guess that’s the power of contents. It doesn’t matter if you build your blog using a free-hosted domain name or .com, but as long as you can build such powerful contents around your blog, you will definitely gain success eventually.
