    So, whilst doing some keyword research i found a new site called dragtotop.com 15 mins ago. It has now archive.net results so it's very new, had about 1500 visitors in march according to alexa. It works just like google, you type in your query and get results from google. The twist is, similar to social bookmarking sites you can vote for listings. Hence the name "drag to top", instead of voting for a listing you "drag" it up.

    All search results in dragtotop are ********, so as this search engine gains popularity, you will gain a competitive seo advantage.

    Haha just found an exploit bug, drag any site from the dragototop search engine and click the little promote button. You can do it on your own profile as many times as you want lol. This will not count as a unique drag though, so on second though... unique drags will be the only things that matter... normal drags will probably be done away with in the future.

    Another interesting aspect of this site is that they could use the same platform to expand their site. Instead of just google and twitter search they could have a social bookmarking site search, msn search, yahoo search, etc, all grouped in "other" above the search bar.

    Excuse me if the post is a bit all over the place, im quite sick at the moment :(

    heres the site:

    Code:
    www.dragtotop.com
    I hope this site takes off, new blackhatter playground.

    ah you are right, its far slower now. prob because the site is new and they've got more visitors than they expected.
