WOT: Web of Trust Updates

tlds

New eTLDs and country-specific Blogger domains mapped to .com

As some of you have noticed, if you enter a WOT scorecard for a country-specific Blogger subdomain , you are now shown the WOT reputation of the same subdomain at blogspot.com. For instance if you are trying to enter a scorecard for example.blogspot.fi, you are now shown the reputation of example.blogspot.com.

The next chapter: A shiny new WOT is on the way!

It’s been a while since we’ve revealed any major changes to the WOT system, but there is a good reason for that! We have spent tons of time developing the next version of our service that will build WOT’s role as the most trusted community-powered website reputation service – a service that makes the Internet a safer place for all of us.

Leaving quality comments

As you might have noticed, a while ago we made some changes to the comment field on the scorecard. We have added some tips on commenting and a minimum limit of 30 characters. This is part of a series of product improvements that we are planning to roll out gradually.

translate on wot comments

Introducing a translation feature

We are getting a massive amount of user-generated content in different languages. The versatility of languages is richness, but they are a bit tricky to understand if you don’t happen to speak the language in question. Therefore, we have added a new feature to help our users communicate with each other.

Note to site owners: Watch out for fake WOT emails!

We have heard reports of some site owners receiving emails promising a good reputation in exchange for money after posting a review request on the WOT forum. These emails are a scam, and have not been sent by WOT.

Happy Holidays and All the Best for 2013!

Do like the reputation icons do: Have fun, relax and enjoy your time during this Holiday season! We thank you all for the past year and look forward to continue working with you in the future!
