Visually looks much better than before, code is awful though and a major web property really needs to validate. imho
LookSmart uses WebmasterWorld to market their new site re-launch.
Is there a press release someplace?
Flashing banners top and bottom is a nice touch...
Lil' Johnny built a website, and look, moving graphics ma, ain't he good?
I might be just a touch overly critical tonight, I've reviewed about 6 sites in a row that all had terrible code, animated screen thieves everywhere, one even had blinking and scrolling text, all done of course by the "web whiz" for a particular company.
Paraphrased Quote- "Yeah, we like the way the sites look but we're concerned about our sales, we projected much higher".
Hmm, all I get is a blank page and 5 links in Opera.
It would be nice if they eliminated the 30px or so side scroll in 800x600 res!
:-) LOL You need to scroll a feww million miles down in Opera :)
LookSmart: Why would you let some script kidies code your site? Hire a professional!
who uses 800x600 anymore? (besides you :) )
a computer hasnt shipped in years without at least 1024/768 as default... and im pretty sure the 800x600'ers are used to being behind and having the scroll a little. The last time I showed someone a site made for 800x600, last year, I was lambasted for being way behind the curve and catering the the stone ages... arent my friends dramatic? :)
Don't like pop-ups, won't go back..... :)
800x600 is still the most widespread:
I use it. I like to be able to sit back from my monitor and put my feet up on the desk and my keyboard in my lap.

It truly amazes me how a page with as little content that is there can generate over 100 errors in the html. Something isn't right! ;)
Shame on you for using fixed font sizes!
> who uses 800x600 anymore? (besides you :))
Ouch, and I thought I was in the top tech arena when I updated from 640x480 last year! ;)
So far this year, 40% of my visitors report screen resolutions of 800x600 or smaller.
That said, I don't design for specific resolutions, anyway.
Talking about new look homepages, check [findwhat.com...]
"Performance Driven Marketing". What do you think?
Looks okay in Opera too!
I love this:

its a nice touch.
The search results pages look better. I hope the click counter has been updated as well. Looks like everyone is trying to morph into a Googlish simple layout.

A little off topic, but has anyone ever seen a zeal listing show up in Google's backlinks?
nope, it doesn't even look like the new [looksmart] homepage shows up in Google.
I can't believe how poor the results are in LookSmart. I can't quite work out if it's Ink or ODP but I've got a very vauguely on-top site at number five, and my main site for that keyword nowhere! Both are in INk and ODP but the main site has hundreds more keywords, themed links etc - the full Brett-works, and nothing - hopeless!
They don't want anyone spidering their links. Robots.txt shows :
Doesn't that mean anyone can view any page?
|They don't want anyone spidering their links. Robots.txt shows : |
This is what I see in the robots.txt file..
This would allow bots into then category folder where the pages in the directory reside.
<edited by Quinn> Sorry Webwalla, just realized that you and skibum were referring to looksmart, not zeal</edit>
what do you think?"
Hey- no site reviews! ;)
Looks to me like they have been Googled:)
