We are releasing an initial version of SearchRater, our plug-in for Firefox. This plug-in adds SiteTruth ratings to search results for Google, Bing, Yahoo, Blekko, and DuckDuckGo.
Click here to go to the installation page. After installing the plug-in, try searching for some heavily spammed terms, such as “New York locksmith” or “discount drugs”. We think you’ll like what you see.
(This is an experimental version of the plug-in. Please report any problems with comments here.)

Sitetruth.com was inaccessible due to a denial of service attack on our hosting provider’s routing servers from 0624 PST to 1155 PST today. The system is now functioning normally.

Google recently “real time results” more prominent in search results. So what are the “real time results”? When we search for “Google search spam”, we are shown an article from someone who just discovered how to use the “-” flag in Google search as a news item. We then get Twitter spam about that news item.
This is yet another failure of “crowdsourcing”. It’s too easy to spam.

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.

SiteTruth is now using data from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to help identify companies. We are now able to provide a valid business address for larger companies that may not be listed in “Yellow Pages” type directories. We now provide some basic financial data for some companies. This gives web users an idea of the size of the company they’re dealing with.

We’ve made some minor updates, in preparation for major ones. Big changes are in the works.
In this round, the main SiteTruth.com page was redesigned, we have a new color scheme, and some server upgrades were made. We had several brief outages during upgrading, but are now back up.
Meanwhile, as a digression, we offer SiteTruth Classic, our search engine in a steampunk format.
