Blogged.com Connects Bloggers With Readers; Increases Traffic and Promotes Quality Content Filtered by People

A Blog Directory and Network "for the Rest of Us" Gives People an Easy Way to Discover, Explore, and Share Favorite Blogs, by Topic, Popularity, and Relevance

ALHAMBRA, CA--(Marketwire - February 25, 2008) - Blogged.com officially open its doors today in public BETA inviting bloggers and readers to connect through its unique online discovery, exploration, and sharing community.

Its goal is to help blog authors connect with their audience and to allow readers to discover new and interesting blogs in its directory. Blogged.com already contains a database of over 200,000 qualified, English language blogs -- one of the largest on the Internet.

The company's staff of full-time editors maintains the integrity and value of blogs listed in its directory, eliminating the frustration of filtering out spam or irrelevant results associated with existing blog services. Editors evaluate blogs based on frequency, relevance, design, and writing style.

"Blogged.com allows people to discover new blogs and provide feedback on the blogs they care about. As the number of blogs increases on the Internet, it becomes increasingly difficult to distinguish and identify the best blogs. We're excited to offer users a fast, easy way to discover high quality content in the ever evolving blogosphere without spending a lot of effort," said Kenneth Yeh, co-Founder of Blogged.com.

For each blog, there is a detailed overview page where people can learn more, find related blogs, view recent posts with direct links to full posts and also contribute their own reviews in a visually rich format.

Frequent visitors can create a profile dashboard that features additional information about themselves, a listing of their reviews, friends, favorites, shared blogs and comments. The profile dashboard also features a mailbox for communicating with other visitors on Blogged.com.

Visitors can browse the directory by categories, sub-category or keywords and sort the results by their user or editor ratings.
