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

Search results improved + Queue status.

I have not really spent much time yet on the search results, improving them has been on the ‘to-do’ list for quite a long time now, as they were returning many duplicate results.

I am experimenting (and learning) with the search feature at the moment, I have imlemented the first test, which seems a big improvement over the previous code, its no longer listing pages full of duplicate results now.

I will be tweaking the code as time permits, to further improve it.

The submission queue is now just under 5800 blogs, I have managed to remove many more dead blogs from the directory, and cleaned up a load of blogs that were never updated for a long time.

I noticed the duplicate results on my last visit. Glad to hear that you fixed that! Just under 5800 blogs in the queue?? You’re gonna be one busy guy! :D

Does the link to report broken links send you a direct notification? I’ve found a few blogs that didn’t work and used that link but I wasn’t sure how it worked (I didn’t see any sort of confirmation).

Anyhow, I appreciate all you’ve done with LS. Keep up the good work!

P.S. I hope my pending blog isn’t >5790 lol ;)

The queue is certainly keeping me busy :)

The report a bad link does not (at present) give me a direct notification, but it stores it for later review, so I can pop in when I get a spare moment and check which ones have been flagged.

Sadly I never got around to coding the automation of that, will have to put that on my to-do list :)

Made the ‘report a bad link’ code report back a thank you for reporting and a notice that it will be investigated in due course. It should have been doing that all along, but a little gremlin had crept in during a previous upgrade ;)

Thanks for mentioning it, would never have spotted it otherwise.

You’re very welcome! I can only imagine how difficult it must be to keep track of so many listings! I like browsing through the different categories to find new sites so if I find any dead links I will definitely report them. You’ve got a fantastic resource which I think everyone should appreciate.


P.S. My blog is listed Yayy! Thank you so much!!
