Best of the Web Blog Directory : Zero Blog Spam Tolerance
Best of the Web has launched a Blog Directory which is taking shape to actually become a decent quality directory of blogs. The blog directory is hand edited and can be found at blogs.botw.org.
Bill Hartzer at Search Engine Guide reports : “The search portion of the Best of the Web blog directory is still in beta, and should be “ready for release within the next 30 days. We are still tweaking the post functionality of the search – grabbing current content from the directory…kind of like Technorati does, without all the spam”, according to Greg Hartnett from Best of the Web.”
Additionally, Bill says that there will be a zero tolerance for spam blogs :

They also must contain unique content—there is zero tolerance for spam blogs…
