I’m JD Withrow, and I have a brief editorial question about your website.
On the homepage, you have a list of links under the heading “Steals and Deals” to a number of shopping links. I’m working with Become.com to help them broaden awareness of their comparison shopping search engine, designed to help consumers doing product research on the web. Of particular interest regarding Become, is the blue Research button that powers a set of reviews based on the query. Last June, Become.com was selected as Best Search & Comparison Site by the Sloan Center for Internet Retailing at the University of California, Riverside. We hope that Become.com is a good fit in your list of sites.
Would you be willing to look at http://www.become.com, and include a link to it if you believe it is merited?
Should you need anything I’d be happy to reply to an email.
Thanks for your time!
