What would you like to do? You can sign up to aboutus and add/remove details about your site.

You might want to have a look through their website as to how that happens, their about page may be useful..

I've found the links from this site to be valuable only to very very small sites, ie a niche site in a niche within a niche. Said differently a sector full of mostly hobby sites with <10 authority sites. In WW speak: 'red widgets collected by little old ladies in the USA'.

Only in that case for results I've seen it be helpful to Y!, less for Bing and slightly to nill for Google.

On my other sites with many PR3 and above inbound links: a link from aboutus.com was a part of the 'link noise' (past 200 in the backlink listing).

Hi Amy, glad that you were able to sign in and remove your contact info, and add a nice description about the project. I fixed the capitalization of the page and checked to see where we might have gotten your information from. Looks like your site was in the top million that we started with in June 2006 - is it possible that you didn't have your contact information concealed at that time (or 2004-5)? That is my best guess.

Hopple, thanks for that information - we are always trying to figure out how to be a better resource for website operators.

Also, I know it is confusing, AboutUs.org is the wiki and AboutUs.com is the newly launched social site for people interested in talking about websites.

Best, Mark

Amy, you might find this thread from a year ago worth reading:
