AltSearchEngines Leaves the ReadWriteWeb Blog Network; Moves Independent
We’ve learned via Yakov at Quintura that the AltSearchEngines blog has moved into independent status. This info has been confirmed by AltSearchEngines editor Charles Knight.
The site launched in June 2007 and Compete shows 40,000 unique visitors in September 2008.
This news comes just days after the launch of the ReadWriteWeb Jobwire which will share stories of new hirings across the social media and new technology categories. In the first week since launch we’ve learned that BrightKite hired Tom Anderson, Mike Mueller has moved over to Fidelity National Title and Brickfish hired a social media director.
I’ve enjoyed reading AltSearchEngines and learning about specialty/niche engines. I wish Charles and the team much success moving forward.
Update: Duncan Riley caught up with ReadWriteWeb owner who said he (Richard) will have more details about the changes on RWW later this evening.
