Swicki just got better!

Swicki is continously improving.

Yesterday, they have sent me the follwing email:

"Hi,
How do you make your swicki better than Google? By getting help from the
experts in your swicki community!

This is a quick note to let you know about a great new "Community Features"
in your swicki.

It is estimated that people find what they want from general search engines
only 40-70% of the time. We want to make that closer to 100% and your
swicki's new tools will allow your community members to fill in any gaps in
the search results.

Your swicki uses the information you give it, along with the best indexing
technologies, to gather search results about your topic. No matter how good
the automatic tools it uses, there will still be gaps that you and other
experts can now easily fill. This means your swicki can become the
definitive search destination on the web for "Nafcom's Crap Blog! Cloud".

Your swicki users can now:
* Vote for results directly on a new results page:
http://nafcoms-crap-blog-cloud-swicki.eurekster.com
* Easily write an answer directly into the search results (see the
"Write your own search result" link at the top of the swicki
results page).
* Use the new WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor for writing
great looking search results, including: URL links and embedded video.
* See a list of unanswered questions that includes search terms people
have searched for or asked on your swicki but didn't find good
answers for:
http://swicki.eurekster.com/communityunanswered.php?gid=badc2879-eeac-472f-9ee2-cf5f50f4cb93
* Subscribe to your swicki for the latest questions and answers using
your swicki's RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed:
http://nafcoms-crap-blog-cloud-swicki.eurekster.com/rss.php
"



So, what does this mean? Yes, it means you are now able to ask me questions about the search result you have entered in my Swicki hot search. Also if you know an answer to the questions asked by other blog readers you can answer them.

I will keep it and just see what the outcome of this all is. Hopefully something good :)

Well, they are moving towards making the blogs using it more and more truly community powered.
