HOW OUR SEARCH ENGINE WORKS:

Our webcrawler is a man­u­al search engine. That’s right an actu­al per­son not a bot adds entries to the site. So if you’d like some­thing updat­ed or changed, let us know know. We’ll revis­it the web address(url) where we retrieved the infor­ma­tion initially.

NO ALGORITHMS:

There are no algo­rithms. We enter items as we find them then add them to a few categories(ex:band/musician, visu­al arts, small busi­ness, etc). The rest is up to your search keywords.

NO TRACKING:

We also don’t track your search­es. All we care about is adding con­tent to help spread the word.

Also oth­er search engines may crawl the con­tent on our site. So peo­ple don’t have to direct­ly search our site in order to find the con­tent on our site.

It allows any­one on the Inter­net to “sug­gest” that the infor­ma­tion be re-crawled or updat­ed. After we receive this request, we’ll revis­it the source page loca­tion “Con­tent retrieved from: …” at a lat­er time. all fields in the reply form are required;

  • COMMENT FIELD — Com­ments may be added. How­ev­er, please note that the com­ment infor­ma­tion itself will prob­a­bly not be used in updat­ing the fea­ture page. It will be used as a gen­er­al guide with light instructions. 
  • NAME FIELD — The name asso­ci­at­ed with the email address in the “EMAIL FIELD” below. 
  • EMAIL FIELD — The senders email address is require and will auto­mat­i­cal­ly be added to our mail­ing list and will NOT be shared. 
  • WEBSITE FIELD — Should be the name from which you believe that con­tent has been sourced from. This is more of a secu­ri­ty check to pre­vent spam and false update requests. In orther words, sim­ply paste the url that we used to retrieve the information(ex: Con­tent retrieved from: “…”) above in to this field. 

That’s it. 🙂
