Spurl - Online Bookmarking - Breaks 1 Million Shared Bookmarks

Jan 11, 2005 - 10:29 am 0 by

Spurl, where search engine meets bookmarking, hit the 1 million 'spurl' count on December 23rd. Here is the announcement posted at the Spurl Help Forums:

On December 23rd Spurl.net passed the 1 million spurl mark. One million pages, hand picked by you - the users - to share with each other. Pretty good, and probably makes Spurl.net one of the largest user edited web site collections / directories in the world - and we're just getting started!

Coincidentally December 23rd also marks Spurl.net's 11 month anneversary, as Spurl.net was originally launched on January 23rd, 2004 (named "I like!" for about 2 weeks), you can read the original announcement here: http://wetware.hjalli.com/000126.shtml

A lot of things has happened since. The service has matured - largely based on excellent feedback from users from all over the world. A lot of functionality and features has been added and Spurl.net is now set up to be able to go through an even faster rate of growth than we saw in 2004.

A lot of good things are coming this year. Among them: - Finally: A search engine, using the human information from the Spurl.net library. - A new and improved Spurl bar - More ways to "dig into" the ever growing collection. - A new group mechanism for collaboration - And an API so that you can build Spurl.net into your own applications.

...and this is just in the next couple of months.

Anyway - happy new year, thanks for your great support in 2004 and happy spurling in 2005!
