Wikipedia: »Regator.com is a curated blog directory and search engine. Founded in 2007 by Scott Lockhart, Chris Turner, and Kimberly Turner and going live with Regator.com in August 2008, Regator LLC also produces Regator Breaking News and the Regator iPhone App for iOS. The API platform also allows for detailed trend tracking and analyzing text. The Breaking News app regularly breaks stories faster than news outlets such as CNN, FoxNews.com, the Huffington Post, and Twitter trending topics. ReadWriteWeb named Regator one of the top 100 web products of 2009, and Mashable awarded Regator.com third place in the category of Social News in its 2008 Open Web Awards. CNET named the free Regator iPhone app one of the top 10 iPhone apps of 2009.« Source
ASHLEY GRIESSHAMMER (2013): »Regator is a blog directory and search engine. It allows users to find, share, and read quality posts coming from hand-selected blogs. The search engine can be found here: www.regator.com. For a bit of history, Regator went live in 2008 and was named one of the top 100 web products of 2009 by ReadWriteWeb, and currently includes over 500 specialized topics. Regator and other blog search engines can provide good insight from experts and specialists on a variety of topics. Unique to Regator, the blogs that are allowed on their site are individually selected by their staff; this means the quality of posts you will find on Regator will likely be better than results on another blog search engine because the blogs are closely monitored. Of all blogs that are nominated for inclusion to the site, about 18% are accepted. Regator and other blog search tools provide a large amount of information to searchers. If you are interested in a topic, it’s more than likely that someone else in the world is as well, and there’s probably a blog for it. Blog information can be both academic and factual as well as purely for entertainment purposes; the topic and type of information you want will determine which blogs/types of blogs you use.« Source
