Applied for Trademark

Well, as we're growing I want to protect our name and entity, so my attorney applied for a trademark for Uncover the Net. They usually take several months (I believe) to complete, but when it's done, I'll post a copy of it on the website. :)

UTN Toolbar is Live

Well, I posted at UTN forums that I was working on one, and the feedback was good. So now we have one! Now being version 1, there are still lots of features that will be added soon, so keep watching. :)

Anyway, I originally had PageRank installed, but I'm waiting for approval (if!) from Google on that before I add it to the live version. I also was going to add Alexa, but I figured that should not be bundled in due to the privacy issues assciated with it.

So..What does it do?

• Eliminate Pop-Up Ads

• Search From Any Website Using:
- Uncover the Net
- Google
- Yahoo
- Ask Jeeves

• Check Backlinks for Any Website Using:
- Google
- Yahoo

Coming Soon:

- FireFox Toolbar
- AutoFill Forms (IE only)
- Anti-Ads Feature (IE only)
- RSS Reader (IE only)

There's no spyware, adware etc. So let me know what you think! And if there are features that you would like to see implemented, let me know, maybe we can incorporate them! :)

Almost 12,000 Listings!

Well, at just over 6 months old, we're at just under 12,000 sites listed. So we're averaging about 2000 sites added per month. The majority of which are non commercial valuable sites added by our editorial team.

Looking forward, we're in the process of hiring a few new editors so hopefully in the next 6 months we can beat our previous statistics!

As you may have noticed, we've changed a few things on the directory too. And you're feedback really does get noticed and makes a big difference. So if you have suggestions or things you'd like to see, just let us know!
