    How will you stop website owners reporting their competitors as spam? if this gained popularity that's exactly what I would do ;)

    Nice.. I like "most" of it.. The design is awesome I think.
    the name is catchy, and the idea is great.
    there was a small error when I tried to add a link, but clicking the back button and submitting the URL again fixes it, (you may want to look at that. {Win xp FF})
    The thing I don't like is that it uses MSN:eek: and they suck big time. I reckon with the results you get from MSN them spam buttons will wear out pretty damn quick. (unless they have picked up there act since the last time I used them)

    But other than that, awesome. congrats.. Is the design that you have now the one spyece offered to make you? for free? if it is +rep for spyece.. nice one.

    Cheers

    The site is nice and fast! However the results are a bit complicated, to much stuff.

    I've been thinking about converting my house to solar CrippleDeath, Thanks for the resource.

    The spam is easy to tell if a competitor is reporting it because I check every spam submission and it is easy to spot the difference. It sends me an email when a page is reported. In the email are links to un-spam it. When I un-spam a page, it makes it so that page can never be reported as spam again. It only takes a couple seconds per report. Spam reports are not very hard to keep up with.

    Also, 99% of the spam reports are truly spam so it is very effective and litterally cleans the results almost automatically.

    fairly fast, don't like the design much, maybe use some javascript to vote, rather than having to reload the page everytime you vote. Also your ranking system seems to be a bit odd.

    I built it to be a little odd to keep people guessing.

    I also wanted to show you a feature I added 6 months ago.

    http://www.vmgo.com/vu/gifts.html

    If you look at the #1 result, gifts.com, you will notice it has alot of the links from their home page in the listing like google does it. Well, I have been working on an automated way for people to do that with every listing in the index. Hopefully, you will have one link that will say "Get Links" and when you click that link it will spider the page and grab all the links from that page and insert them into the database. Then that listing will have links to other pages on their site under their one listing.

    I thought that would be neat?

    The search pages are very cluttered,
    couldn't even stand looking at them.

    Add a web 2.0 touch, re-do the logo and I think that it would grow like crazy!

    Remove the YouTube sidebar displays (make it look like a private independent service ;)) remove all the external link distractions, make the font classic and straight to it like time new roman, the results are slow to load, change the design and favicon. Remove the Jesus fish at the bottom in the future :) (If you want to have a successful business you can't allow religion in the way although I do hope you understand). But I tell you.... you've got something great.

    Not normally something I do - check on a post LOL

    I have to say - I do like it....

    I still think you'd be better served with Ads on it.... plus you'd make some money - think about it, all search engines have ads on them. I'm so used to seeing ads, if I don't see them I have to do a double take to see what type of site I'm on LOL

    Taking me awhile to get used to the name though....

    dmoz is highly pronouncable....

    vmgo tougher....

    Good Luck

    I'm just watching your progress over in my lil' cyber corner of the planet...

    very nice search engine fast

    you built it on yourself? wow that is great

    your logo shouldn't been inner growth

    that doesn't look good

    and why bother to use !com????


    your bottom VMgo.com

    VM is not included in your link Blue that


    I would push the results right a little bit

    it's too much to the left

    makes me feel like i had been drag to the left

    thats all for me

    nice tho

    hope you makes money .. tons of money

    I agree, use JS/Ajax for the voting so the page doesn't have to reload to vote.


    It looks and works very good and I was suprised to find a lot of my sites in the results for the keywords they are normally tops for.

    Good work so far...

    I have an Ajax based voting system (here), it's relatively simple code. If you need it.

    Hey, I think It's a really new, innovative search engine. I've just just got a few idea's on some adjustments you could make.

    Ok I didn't really look at the voting/spam section. But from hearing the previous posts it sounds like you get unlimited spam-reporting/voting so possibly make it so that you only get to report a website once per day? because if you could continually report then it could result in people getting jealous about lower rankings and therefore reporting until they are lower in the search engines.

    Secondly, The interface looks just a little bit to cluttered when you search.

    Thirdly if you need any graphics then I'm always here to help for free, I personally think what you're doing is great and could turn out very successfully. (I recently designed http://eownagestudios.com and http://explosivewebdesign.com if you want to see some of my most recent graphical designs)

    Anyway keep up the good work.

    Joel.
