The last few days, I’ve been testing a new social voting site named SERPd.com. It’s a replacement for Sphinn since they removed voting earlier this month in an effort to increase participation; seems counter-intuitive. I haven’t been to Sphinn in a few weeks and will likely return less and less for stories because it’s editor-fed.
SERPd, however, is open to submissions, voting, tagging, and convenient sharing features. It’s more socially aware and less publisher-deemed important. More about the announcement here.
It operates very well and includes features like image inclusion (with visible cropping) and a familiar format to social news sites. There’s a bug that throws a PHP error when a non-jpeg image is used for submission inclusion. I’ve found I can back up and choose another image (jpeg) or the default image.
Setup a free account and start submitting, voting and discussing great online marketing stories. If you’re familiar with Sphinn, you’ll be right at home. If not, it only takes a few minutes to get started.
