Webbits - AKA Webbits

The competition is stiff these days for websites and I'm always on the lookout for another way of building a site that has to do with marketing products and services. As you can tell by this blog, I really only been here once in a while when I'm want to do a shout out to the new blog or site that a friend of mine is starting or one of my own.

Because of the success of Yahoo! answers I thought that it would be interesting to have a website like that, where users could come by and perhaps add their own comments and add some more information to an already existing page. That is how I came up with the idea of Web Bits.

So far we have done a post called cheap designer handbags and another one called affordable hearing aids and it's been really fun to try to code the whole thing, as it is a little bit different than most blogs I have seen.

There is even its own identifiers and syntax in the whole harebrained scheme of the idea.

You really have to be publishing manually to make sure that the site carries on into the future because those old weird sites are not getting any kind of attention from the big search engines anymore. you have to have some good information, or at the very least interesting to readers or the long haul.So I wanted to
