Ad Limiter 2.2 is now available. Yahoo search results will again be rated, now that Ad Limiter understands a change in Yahoo links. Google search results will now be rated for countries where Google redirects “google.com” to country-specific sites. Blekko support has been removed, due to the demise of the Blekko search engine.

We’ve been upgrading the SiteTruth system. Recent changes include:
- All our add-ons for Firefox are now signed by the Mozilla Foundation. This will soon get rid of the phony add-ons using our add-on ID.
- The new US business database has been loaded and indexed. Business recognition has improved.
- Address parsing has improved. We now recognize about 95% of US mail addresses.
SiteTruth is loading a new database of 20 million US businesses. During the database upload, rating of new sites is very slow. Normal operation should resume by the morning of April 5. Rating quality will improve later in the month.
The SiteTruth API for developers is now FCGI only. The long-obsolete CGI interface has been deleted. Users of the API should update their REST URLs.
Our SearchRater add-on, which adds SiteTruth ratings to all search results from Google, Bing, Yahoo, Blekko, and DuckDuckGo, is now an approved Mozilla add-on. Download it from http://www.sitetruth.com.
The SiteTruth rating engine now recognizes Better Business Bureau seals and checks them against the BBB’s database. A valid BBB seal with a rating of B or better will give a site SiteTruth’s highest rating.
We now offer a Firefox/Internet Explorer search plug-in for SiteTruth. This plug-in makes SiteTruth search easily available in your browser toolbar.
When SiteTruth locates a business, it now maps its location. This feature is experimental, and feedback would be appreciated.
We’ve also added one-click access to Securities and Exchange Commission filings for a business.
