I am linking here two search engine compilations that I came across on web after posting my list of search engines:

    🙂 Well written.

    Firstly, it is not easy developing a site / blog. Then, later on, you need to broadcast to the world. Now, how does one do this? It is neither easy nor a magic wand, as there are so many offers across the internet to promote the same.

    However, I came across this website, You can write about your site, post and link, as well as a photo. The service is free.

    Please comment.

    Ah yes, I remember the Google Pages one too. Seems like Google likes making fools out of people but they seriously need to hire a couple of people from MTV to teach them how to do so. Though I must admit that the Google G Day waala idea was pretty neat.

    Dear Poonam, this is maybe out of scope here (even tho search engines are powerful educational tools as well) but AutumnSnow from China commented on my post on educational Multimedia, talking about the flaws of UK educational system (HKong is an ex UK colony). I would like – if possible – you to add something to the thread, since you are an instructional designer. Here is the link:

    Another thing. Do not forget to visit Ashish’s new blog. He needs support from his friends now:
