Top 10 Websites

(December 13, 2007) Thirteen years ago it seems that the majority of sites on the internet were either about jobs or sex. In those days finding the Top 25 websites that had to do with recruiting was a real chore (although it was also a pleasure in that you could review all of sites that existed).

This year on the Time Magazine Top 10 Websites there is social networking, making a little cash, food, politics, travel, reading, volunteering, weight loss and job hunting sites.

Jobs is hanging in there at number 10 and sex didn't even make the list!

In any case, congratulations go out to indeed.com.
    #1. Lemonade.com
    Making extra cash through lemonade-stand sales isn't just for kids anymore. You, too, can now get in the game at Lemonade.com by setting up a virtual "stand" filled with products you'd recommend to friends. Add the widget to your Facebook, MySpace or blog pages and when purchases are made through your site, you receive 5% to 15% of the cost of the item. The stands are a win-win for everyone: Online retailers get free advertisements, social networkers are recommended good products, and you get paid if the deal goes through.

    #2. AskSunday.com
    Personal assistants used to work only for the rich and famous. Not anymore. Sign up for a subscription ($29 to $49 a month) at AskSunday.com and have the site's virtual secretaries do tasks for you, like schedule doctor's appointments, set up dinner reservations or give you a wake-up call even if you are on a trip around the world. Sunday has even helped its customers sort through their hectic dating schedules by searching personal ads on Craigslist and canceling unwanted dates.

    #3. Wink.com
    With more than 200 million people signed up for social networks, how can you quickly find your best buddy from second grade, that guy you dated in high school, or your co-worker from three jobs ago? The people search engine Wink.com sorts through all of these profiles so you can easily find and connect online with long lost friends. Recent upgrades to the site also allow users to control their search profiles on the Wink search engine. Delete that unflattering picture, remove the rude post, and present yourself as you'd like to be seen instead of letting the search engine take complete control.

    #4. TechPresident.com
    For the first time in a presidential election the Internet is playing a central role in deciding who will become the next leader of the United States. TechPresident.com, started by editors at the Personal Democracy Forum, covers how the campaigns are playing out in cyberspace and how user-generated content created by activists affects the popularity of the candidates. The site's blog tracks everything from Web advertising and email lists to postings on YouTube and campaign websites. You can even use the site to compare how many friends the candidates have on MySpace and Facebook.

    #5. Goodreads.com
    Have you ever wondered what books your friends are reading? Are there novels in your colleagues' libraries that you'd enjoy? Or some that aren't worth the time and effort? Sign up for Goodreads.com to read book reviews from your trusted network. Swap thoughts on the latest biography or romance novel and even join an online book club to meet new literary friends. Then get off the computer and spend some time with a good old-fashioned book.

    #6. MenuPages.com
    Open your takeout menu drawer and you're likely to find the five food-stained restaurant menus you've been ordering from for years. But if you live in big cities like New York, San Francisco or Los Angeles places with countless foodie havens your mealtime options shouldn't be limited to these same, stale choices. Log on to MenuPages.com, choose the neighborhood you live in, pick the type of cuisine you'd like to order and browse selections from hundreds of eateries. With approximately 25,000 menus from eight cities, you'll surely never have to order plain ol' pizza again.

    #7. DontForgetYourToothbrush.com
    Are you cruising in the Caribbean this winter, hitting the slopes in Aspen or just spending a week with your in-laws? Wherever you plan on traveling, be sure to visit DontForgetYourToothbrush.com to make a checklist of what you need to pack and prepare in advance before you go. The site is simple sign in with a user name and password, choose the type of trip you're taking and then start checking off the appropriate to-do items, like "book ski lessons," "arrange a house-sitter," and "check flight times." You can print out the list and carry it with you, or have email reminders sent to you before your trip. The site also includes handy links to websites where you can take care of chores like renting cars, booking campsites, and getting a new passport.

    #8. VolunteerMatch.com
    Make giving back to your community one of your New Year's resolutions this year by using VolunteerMatch.com. Log on to the site, type in your location and select an area of interest like animal welfare, crisis support or housing and homelessness. The site then matches you with a project that best fits your skill set. There's something for everyone: Current listings include school librarians, homework tutors, special event coordinators, Peace Corps volunteers and even cat socializers.

    #9. Fatsecret.com
    Losing weight is a lot easier when you have support from friends. Visit Fatsecret.com to connect with others who are trying to shed pounds, and to read up on popular diets like South Beach, Weight Watchers or Atkins. You can also keep an online journal about eating and exercise, swap recipes and make friends with other dieters. The site is entirely free but paid features may be added in the future.

    #10. Indeed.com
    Bored at work? Look for a new job by using the search engine Indeed.com, which spans listings from job boards, newspapers and company employment sites. Use the advanced search function to drill down by keyword and location so you can match your requirements precisely. Save your searches and have them delivered to you by email or RSS feed. With Indeed.com you only have to search one site to find the new vocation that's right for you.
