Just wanted to take a minute and mention some cool improvements over on our sister site Hyplo.com.
The largest change is we are now using Solr for indexing and searching. This allows for better relevance, faster searches and better geo-location searches.
We have also updated the search results page and include more thumbnails.
Have a look!
Feedage.com has just launched Hyplo.com.
Hyplo.com is a Free directory of hyperlocal sites. Users can find blogs and news sites about their local town. Currently we have over 20,000 local sites in the directory. Every site is GEO-located, with user ratings and reviews.
Users looking for hyperlocal news can search by zip, city or state. With over 20,000 sites we already have sites for most US cities. We are constantly reviewing and approving new sites. Like our efforts on Feedage.com, we continually strive to have just the best sites in our directories.
Authors and editors of hyperlocal sites can suggest their site for review. Our multistage review process works to ensure that only the highest quality sites are approved and GEO-tagged with the appropriate location.
In an effort to remove adult content we no longer display images or embedded content like videos in our Feed preview.
We have made good strides in cutting down text based adult content, but images and videos continued to get through.
We believe our users can still preview RSS Feeds and understand its topics and quality without the images.
Feedage.com is committed to providing the Highest Quality RSS Feed directory.
We have put recaptcha on our html2rss and blender tools.
This was needed to cut down on the large number of people using automated tools to create URL link farms with these tools. While we understand and support the SEO aspects of Feedage.com our primary mission is to provide a high Quality categorized RSS Feed directory.
Unfortunately this will add more burden to our legitimate users. We feel this is needed to ensure we keep only high Quality RSS Feeds in our directory.

I want to start off by saying if you submit good quality feeds, you don’t spam our RSS directory and you are not submitting thousands of affiliate feeds then these changes should not effect you. Keep up the great work! Feedage.com is committed to helping you promote your content, and to users looking for your high quality content.
To cut down on users intent on spamming our directory and submitting thousands of affiliate feeds we have enabled some new rules. Users now need to maintain a user rating of 50 to submit RSS Feeds to the Feedage.com RSS Directory.
Your user rating is displayed on your profile page and you can get additional details on how your rating is calculated. The two most critical elements of your user rating are the grade of your RSS Feeds, and the number of duplicate Feeds you submit. New users get a user rating of 0 until we rate them, usually within a few days. Until a user is rated, you can submit feeds.
To learn how to improve your Feed grade you can read about our Feedage.com Grading System and you can user our Feed Inspector to get hints on what to improve.
Duplicate Feeds are probably even more important to maintaining a good user rating. Duplicate feeds are where the content of the feed is identical to one or more feeds you submitted. While we have always blocked duplicate URLs from being submitted users have found ways to submit the same content under different URLs. While you think this might improve your chances of getting syndicated, it will now lower your user rating.
To help users identify duplicate feeds your My Feeds will display duplicates will a red back-ground. You will need to delete the duplicate.
Is Feedage.com against affiliate marketing? No. We have many users that run successful affiliate marketing businesses by adding value in the form of reviews and clean promoting methods. We welcome these users. We do not want users submitting the 12 most common misspellings of IPOD, or the same feed with four different URLs.
I just read an interesting article from WebProNews on how Content Syndication Is Your Friend
by Mike McDonald.
I suggest you have a quick read.
If I was to summarize the article; it suggests that the back links and exposure gained from syndication outweighs the unknown impact of duplicate content.
Obviously here at Feedage.com we believe this is very much the case. While having your website or blog show up on the first page of Google is what we all want, if you don’t have the time, money or knowledge to do good SEO for your content, submitting it to syndication services can be very beneficial.
