Since Alternative Search Engines (ASE) launched earlier this year, it’s become one of my daily reads to keep up with the energetic thinking and building happening with search engine optimization, vertical search engines and applications. ASE is a member of the Read Write Web blog network (RWW), started by the well respected tech journalist Richard MacManus – Sphere is also prominently featured on RWW. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’m super excited about Sphere partnering with ASE. You can find Sphere Related Content following their posts on all their index and permalink pages. Like RWW, the Sphere Related Content icon will connect you to contextually relevant ASE posts, mainstream articles and blog posts.
If you aren’t familiar with ASE and you’re interested in the search space, I think you’ll love their site. The narrator (Charles Knight who is a respected industry analyst and former SEO guru) have the perfect voice for guiding the conversation. Great folks to work with, open to new ideas and the type of partner that just gets it.
