Powered by WordPress is a new blog directory for blogs running WordPress or hosted at WordPress.com. This is a project of Vamsi Gangavalli that aims to enlist as many WordPress blogs as possible and categorize them into 500 different categories and sub-categories.

Anyone can submit a blog for free as long as you meet the initial requirement which is, only WordPress or WordPress.com blogs are accepted. If you meet this requirement, what you have to do next is to go to the Submit page and fill out the neede information like blog url, title, description, meta keywords, meta description, name, email address and blog category. Make sure that you read the guidelines posted beside the form.

Once your blog is accepted and listed, Powered by WordPress will display your Google Page Rank and Description, your Alexa rank and Traffic Chart. Visitors to this directory can rate your website. You can also easily check your cached pages and backlinks in Google, Yahoo, MSN, Altavista, as well as check your Technorati Rank.

    Nice and Customized layout…….I know you are an experienced guy on this…..do you suggest from where I can gather some useful ebooks to know the WP theme plugin functions well?

  • JP Habaradas, February 12, 2007 @ 3:34 PM

    @vamsi – Thanks for the info. We appreciate you taking the time to explain things. I know it’s a very time consuming project and you guys are doing a good job.

    To the rest: There ya go, word straight from Vamsi himself. So just be patient coz the guys from PoweredbyWP are doing their best. :)

    @Jun – You’re welcome! Thanks for dropping by. :)

    @deuts – Awesome! :D

  • deuts, February 12, 2007 @ 11:08 AM

    I've submitted my site already under the category Regional>>Philippines, and guess what? I'm alone in that category!

  • Jun, February 11, 2007 @ 10:29 PM

    registering my blogs… thanks bro…

  • vamsi, February 11, 2007 @ 1:46 AM

    thought to check back.

    We are reviewing every blog and their submission details manually and this is a pain taking process really. Having full time jobs on the other side, we are really giving as much time we can give for this project.

    Its just a matter of time that your blogs are reviewed.

    I've been even filling descriptions for some blogs whose description is not clear or simply blank or 2-3 words. But some, I've been rejecting because I don't know how to describe their blogs.

    Thanks for support everybody.

    Do keep submitting and encourage submitting.

  • JP Habaradas, February 9, 2007 @ 9:47 PM

    @ron – It does take time. I'm sure your blog will be accepted and will be in the list soon. :)

  • ron, February 9, 2007 @ 6:39 PM

    i joined yesterday but I'm not on the list yet.

  • JP Habaradas, February 9, 2007 @ 9:45 AM

    @Jim – Not really from the dead, you can call it a short break. Hehe :D

    @ron – Cool! You're welcome! :)

    @Prab – Sure why not? The more the merrier, right? :)

  • Prab, February 9, 2007 @ 1:57 AM
