Announcing a new sister site to GeoPrac, GeotechSearch.com – a geotechnical search engine! This search engine is powered by Google’s Custom Search with it’s own clean interface. Search queries only return results from sites that are hand picked by myself and other members of GeoPrac.net. So you don’t have to sift through results that aren’t relevant to geotechnical engineering, geological engineering and related disciplines.
The source of sites included in the GeotechSearch search engine come from the GeoLinks section of this site. Any GeoPrac.net member can contribute links (subject to approval) and they will then be included in the search engine results within a few days. So if you’re not a member, why not join GeoPrac.net? And then contribute a link to the GeoLinks section. I’m incredibly excited to really start tapping into the capabilities of GeoPrac as a true online COMMUNITY of "geo" practitioners for the benefit of all in our profession…the possibilities are endless!
Best wishes for a happy and prosperous 2010 to all the readers of GeoPrac.net! I am grateful for all of my readers, visitors and sponsors for a great 2009 and I look forward to continuing to work in the new year towards making this site one of the best online resources for geotechnical engineers, geoengineers and all professionals in the geo-industry.
As is customary for bloggers at this time of year, I have listed below the top 100 GeoPrac.net stories published in 2009. Long-time readers of GeoPrac know that I don’t like to rank the articles by total number of ‘hits’, since I think that biases the rankings towards the ones that have been published longer. Instead, I order them by hits per day. I think that works well when looking at popularity of content on a monthly basis, but just for grins I’ve also included the top 100 items of all time (based on total page impressions). Again, Happy New Year!
