LS Blogs, the blog directory and search engines very own blog.
Random header image... Refresh for more!

Status update.

The queue is now down to under eight thousand, even new ones are coming in every day, I am managing to accept blogs *and* remove dead wood from the directory.

For example, yesterday I ran a admin tool to check the blogspot blogs that had been submitted, and found over 100 that were dead (as in deleted, giving a 404 message on blogspot).

Its not really as simple as that, as I have to manually check each one, as sometimes false 404’s get reported, but if it fails the auto-check, and also the manual check, then its gone.

Thats one hundred dead ones removed from the directory in one swoop, cleaning up the categories, search results, and also getting the queue down a little more (as un-approved ones are also checked).

The new server is still going strong, even under load, its hardly breaking into a sweat.
Its still early days, a year or two on this server will be a really good test as to the longer term reliablity ;)
