It’s been a great week to be part of Shoeboxed. We’ve been getting a lot of exposure on the Internet, and we are happy to have so many people coming to the site.
On Friday, we were on the front page of TechCrunch, one of the biggest blogs on the Internet. If you didn’t know, TechCrunch focuses on technology and Internet trends, and brought us a lot of traffic. We have a lot more people in the Shoeboxed family as a result. More people than ever are getting their receipts organized, and the newer features related to making shopping a social and fun activity online are really taking off thanks to our new users.
Probably the funniest thing about being on TechCrunch is all the random small blogs that try to get traffic by copying TechCrunch stories word for word. These splogs (spam + blogs) pop up all over the place, and it’s kind of funny to see them have Shoeboxed plastered all over them, even if no one but me ever even sees them.
We’ve also been on a lot of other blogs in the last week. Keep track of our blog coverage by going to www.google.com/blogsearch and searching for “Shoeboxed”. You can also subscribe to this page so you can follow everyone that’s writing about how we help organize receipts, stop spam, and find trends.
We also had some awesome indirect coverage yesterday. A site called styleignite.com wrote a story about hot new Web 2.0 design, and called Shoeboxed the “posterboy” of horizontal design. This blog entry got onto the front page of Digg. Shoutout to Rob Goodlatte who did our redesign!
