Happy New Year to all GeoPrac.net members and visitors! I send you warmest wishes for a happy, healthy and fulfilling 2009. As is the custom on most blogs, I’ve taken a look at the most popular items on the site from 2008. I define popularity as highest average hits/day, not just the most hits, otherwise it biases things towards those articles that have been posted longer. I also break down the most read articles of 2008 including those published earlier, and the most popular items published in the last quarter. Click through for the lists.
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!
