Regator is the most selective blog directory on the web. They hand-pick the best content from the blogosphere and make it available to you in one place. You can find what you need in several ways, including search and browsing channels. We previously covered Regator in our post about finding news relevant to you.
Based on feedback from their users, Regator recently did a complete redesign of the site. The new design gives the site a slightly cleaner and slightly less green look. Most obvious improvements include: thumbnails for posts including images, search was moved front and center, and the UI was tweaked to make browsing and finding embedded audio and video easier.
Regator has also done some work on the back-end. They are based on AJAX, so they have done some major SEO work to ensure Google can find the content. This has already boosted their PageRank to a 5. Regator’s search was already fast, but they have fine-tuned it even further. They are also constantly adding new blogs to their 500+ categories, as many as 50 per day.
If you haven’t already checked it out, Regator is definitely worth a look. The “What’s Hot” feature will help you find out what the blogosphere is buzzing about. You can add your favorite blogs, rate them, and leave comments. If you are tired of trying to keep up with your RSS feeds, Regator may be a good alternative. Not only can you keep up with the blogs that matter to you, but you easily discover new and valuable content.Category: Launches, Strategy, web 2.0 | Tags: blogosphere, News, redesign, regator, relevant news
