One of my favourite sites to visit is TechSpy. It’s an upcoming technology news aggregate site that uses a different model to boost stories to the spot light. Rather than posting troll stories or raking up friends just to get stories pushed up to the front, it’s uses out traffic and commentary activity (among other things) to determine how popular a story should be. The community also comprises of the more mature people on the newsboiler network.

However, we all need to get TechSpy among the big dogs and the job is also partially in the hands of webmasters such as myself, so here are some unofficial buttons I made that can be added to your site. If only they made an interactive javascript button, now that would be awesome.

I’m not good at Photoshop, so if anyone wants to improve, feel free. You can see the big button in action on the left side of this post.

Some sample code to insert these pics would look something like:

<a href=”http://techspy.com/tips?url=http%3a%2f%2fwww.YourSite.com%2fYourStory.html&title=StoryTitle” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://www.yoururl.com/images/techspy.jpg” border=”0″ /></a>

    My problem with the sites are the users themselves along with the admins. Every post that I submit gets reported because the user that reports doesn’t understand how a reporter writes articles. So as of right now I have taken my site off of TechSpy for the Time being until an admin responds to me.

    Does the report follow the guidelines laid out by the TechSpy network or are they invalid reports?

    It can get competitive, but if the reporter is right, there is no ground really to stand on. That happens everyday at N4G.com.
