About JoeAnt »Former Go.com volunteer guides who wanted to keep their community alive by creating a new directory founded JoeAnt.com. It is a community where every editor has the opportunity to make a difference by finding and adding the best sites in their chosen topics. JoeAnt.com was originally launched in the spring of 2001. We soon realized that our rapid growth required some changes. We introduced a new look in August 2002 with changes which included a fully spiderable index, faster results in searches, and better tools for our editors.« Source
SEO Logic® (01/29/03): »When the Disney company decided it no longer had any use for its troop of Go Guide volunteers, many of them decided to find ways to continue organizing the Internet. One group of former Go Guide volunteers banded together to start JoeAnt, a volunteer-edited directory with many unique features, and a very relaxed attitude. JoeAnt was conceived by a group of a dozen former Go.com (Disney) Go Guides and launched on May 24, in the spring of 2001. Within a year, it had become clear that the founders had been onto something special when they started. They redesigned and rebuilt the site, recreating the back-end enabling the directory to be indexed by search engine spiders, adding several new tools for editors, and improving the performance of the search engine, then re-launched in August of 2002.« Source
