Page Rank & UTN, Part 2

I just want to add to what Tim has written.

It is great to see UTN assigned an 8 and to see PR running though the whole directory structure. However, this directory is not about PR. We are working to build a resource useful to those who surf the Web. PR is not important to that goal. 99% of the additions to the database are selected and added for free by editors. You can compare this to those PR selling directories that have the majority (or all) of their additions via the paid submission route.

We at UTN are in this for the long haul and we are going to achieve a directory with several hundred thousand useful sites in the next few years. We are not DMOZ, or Yahoo, or Zeal, or Joeant, or any other search resource. We are creating our own identity and our own unique contribution to the Web.

But as Tim wrote, this increase in PR is certainly exciting!
