Alltop – The Place To Find Out What’s Happening

Submitted by on Tuesday, 30 June 2009

alltop-full“The purpose of Alltop is to help you answer the question, “What’s happening?” in “all the topics” that interest you. We do this by collecting the headlines of the latest stories from the best sites and blogs that cover a topic. We group these collections — “aggregations” — into individual web pages. Then we display the five most recent headlines of the information sources as well as their first paragraph. Alltop is an information filter to help you find your nuggets of gold.”

Ahhhhh. A site we can go to to find out the best information available – all in one place! Designed by ‘Two Guys and a Gal” (Will Mayall, Kathryn Henkens, Guy Kawasaki) to develop the GO TO spot to get the best of the best, Alltop has topics and areas to handle most topics of interest in almost any category you can think of- cooking, parenting, business, sales, coaching, photography, celebrities.

They search other websites and newsblogs for the top stories, and import them every hour. Cool beans! Isn’t it wonderful that someone is doing that for us! And if you want to see a topic that they don’t cover (doubtful – they are really inclusive), they even have a suggestion box!

I feel like it’s Christmas! I can sit in my hammock by my frog pond on Saturdays and read about all the stuff I ever wanted to know…. let’s see: how to bake bread (I might start with how to turn an oven on, since I’ve never used one), how to change my oil (Oops, I don’t mean that!), and why bacon is bad for me (Oh, I don’t care.).

I plan to make sure these folks get all of my best articles – just in case anyone wants to learn how to help buyers make all of those pesky implicit decisions that sales doesn’t handle. Or I can introduce them to my front end decision tool for search engines that help folks get what they need… or, Gee… maybe we could start our own Decision Facilitation or Buying Facilitation section! With Alltop, it’s all possible. Check them out. They’ll become your favorite go-to site.

Good job guys and gal! www.alltop.com
