It took us a few months to work out the kinks, but the is back up. The site never did run up to spec when launched last time, and we have been through it and gotten things taken care of. This time around, if the site loads slowly, it's either because of the popularity of the site and that the server itself is having trouble loading the site or it's you!
The site functions much better now with the correct number of links being reported as being indexed. For those that remember the 1st incarnation of DaL reported 40,000+ links a day being indexed. Todays launch displays much better and more accurate results. About 800 links a day are added to the Drop a Link database.
Check out the new site, register, mark up some favs, and explore the media of the internet.
We are pretty happy with the site now and fill it's a lot more up to par with are other larger sites we maintain.
We hope you like this new speedy version of Drop a Link and that you find it useful. Give it a chance and you will find some pretty cool stuff that you haven't seen before.
We've sorted out most of the bugs, however, there are a few sites that we've added their RSS feeds which allow us to pull their links to their content, but they've configured their RSS feeds incorrectly and as a result, errors happen when you try to view the content on their site from DaL. We are working on removing these sites from DaL, but with 419 sites being indexed currently, it may take some time. If you see these errors, please help us by reporting them in this thread.
We are considering thinning down the top frame when you click the links that go to the other media sites, but we will wait for comments on that.
is updating every hour from all sorts of sites around the net. I hope everyone at least gives it a shot as the site can become very addictive if you give it a chance.
Enjoy your media browsing and let us know what you think!
