Our StickyNotes section is basically a combination of a blog and a company news page. Here you can find general announcements about our web site, techincal/system related announcements, and other information about what we are doing to improve and grow SearchQB.com. We decided that calling it StickyNotes was a better fit than labelling this a blog or news page simply because sometimes the information here may be updated daily or multiple times a day, and other times it will not be updated for a while.

We would like to thank everyone who visits our site each day for the Item of the Day section. After having done this since April, we are noticing almost as many people visit for the Item of the Day as they do for their search needs. Each day we also have more than just one item we would like to post, but we have kept the daily posting to one as per the initial idea for this page. Because of the growing interest in this page, and the desire of our staff to provide more information to our visitors, we have decided to mix things up as far as our Item of the Day goes. We are going to be providing more than just one item, many more in fact, but we have decided not to do this at SearchQB.com, because this is, afterall, a search engine. Instead we have decided to spin off a new site called NewsQB.com. This site is currently operating in beta as we have not completed the design, and there are still some operational bugs to be worked out. Once the site leaves beta we will have a press release for it and additional promotion as well, but in the meantime, as we will be contributing to that site every day, we are going to cease updating this Item of the Day section. So to get your daily fix of football, be sure to check out NewsQB.com, sign up for your free account (get your desired username now before all the good ones are taken), and help us with the beta testing. You can email your feedback and recommendations to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.

It's almost June, which means it is time for you to begin prep work for your 2007 fantasy football team(s) if you have not started yet. Whether you are going to be involved in one league or ten, you need premium information if you are going to capture some titles this year. There are thousands of fantasy sites out there that can help you, but it is difficult to sort through all of them using a regular search engine. We know firsthand- in April our staffers got busy making sure our results for "fantasy football" were more relevant than any other search engine. What they found out while doing their work was that just as regular search engines cannot tell the difference between American football and soccer, they also could not tell the difference between fantasy football (gridiron) and fantasy football (soccer). Mixed in regular search engine results were a number of sites for fantasy soccer. We of course know you fantasy team owners don't have time to sift through irrelevant results, which is why we tediously groomed our own search results to make sure you get the best fantasy sites, and of course only American football ones. Oh, and don't forget, if you don't see your own site or a site you like high up in the results, but think it should be, tell us why via our site review process.

Search our site for the keywords football news. If you want to check out football news sites, our web site provides only American football sites in the top 50+ results. A check at a popular general search engine showed seven of the top ten results (including the number one spot) were about soccer, which is known as "football" in other countries. SearchQB.com knows you are searching for results related to the gridiron, and that is why you can find information about American football faster by using SearchQB.com instead of a general search engine.

Our press release announcing this site was launched today, what a great experience. Our traffic was way up and we received some great site submissions from visitors. We have chronicled one of them in our Item of the Day section. We will be continuing with more promotion of our site this weekend as the NFL draft takes place. To those of you who have visited so far, thanks, and we hope you have gotten something out of the search experience here. Don't forget, if you have a football related web site of your own, or one you frequently visit and think it should appear higher up in search results, submit it for our review process now.

Today is the technical launch date of our web site. We will be doing more fanfare and promotion later this week, timing our efforts with this coming weekend's NFL Draft, which is a great time for people to search for all sorts of football related information. Our site creators and some staff members will be attending a draft party this weekend, but we have not decided where yet. We will post this information once we have decided so that hopefully some of you will come out and meet our staff and help us pass the time between picks in that ever-so-long first round!
