It looks like del.icio.us has also – like Facebook and Google – performs some interface updates, specifically to the save interface. I wonder if this extends only to the input or whether they have plans to roll out some larger update or redesign.

del.icio.us - bookmark

UPDATE: The suggestions are alphabetical, not ordered by use which makes them close to useless with pages which are bookmarked by many people.

I decided to have a look at the effect that posting an item, originally blogged on Wednesday, to would have, this is the item that I posted:

You can see below that I get the most hits from the what’s new section, although I get some hits from the front page. Now I wouldn’t advise link spamming this certainly shows that there’s an advantage to posting your news items to reddit, and certainly more statistics are needed to breakdown the effectivity of reddit posts.

Naturally I also had organic traffic, and the post to reddit generated 24 of the 26 hits to the article with in the first hour, half of which came from the ‘what’s new’ feed.

Now just imagine if I had said something interesting in my reddit post.

, as I still call it, is a social bookmarking, tagging or folksonomy site. Friends of mine and I believe folksonomy is part of the move towards a semantic web, but that’s not what I want to talk about here.

Most readers have noticed that I post my del.icio.us links to my blog, but I have been doing more than that for the people who have been paying attention. I have been adding messages in the notes section as microblog entries for my blog, giving a brief description of the context in which I found it.

This is a nice simple way to add more information to my blog, and feel the need to elaborate with pages of text.
