Vote Up for Your Favorite Deals at Dealigg.com
Dealigg.com features a user voted deals and coupons shopping experience. Here, members of the community can submit information on bargains from any store. Other members judge whether or not it is worthy to be featured on the site. Despite being one of the newest deal websites, Dealigg has proven its worth with a following from hundreds of members submitting information about the latest deals online and offline.
The website’s name Dealigg was based on the concept of "pligg." This term was derived from the Spanish term “menéame” which describes how the pligg system works. Pligg is an application which allows users to submit an article which will be reviewed by all members of the community as well promoted. It will be voted up and featured on the main page based on the popularity gained among members. A newly submitted article, in this case deal or coupon will remain in the pligg area until it has sufficiently gained sufficient popularity to be featured in the home page.
The Pligg management system is also being used by other websites such as DealSpy.org. This explains why there are a few similarities between the sites. Some reviews about Dealigg.com also cite the similarity of the site platform with a more experienced deal site, DealsPl.us. In general, all similar sites are deemed to have their roots in Digg.com. When it comes to website security, SiteAdvisor.com in partnership with McAfee Security Software tested the site to be free of any type of harmful bugs. This is very important for shopping sites where personal information as well as financial details (if any) is provided.
On shopper’s perspective, how the deals are presented matter most. Dealigg.com features a user friendly, easy navigation platform. The header brings all the latest deals summarized in one page. Popular deals are also listed in one page so shoppers can browse through the best deals based on user and visitor views. A section exclusively for freebies and coupons are also available on the header and top deals as well as the latest deals on the sidebar. Partner deal sites are also listed on the right sidebar. Also located on the same section in an option where viewers and users can subscribe via email and read about deals through RSS feeds.
Dealigg has just recently created a Facebook page. This opens doors for the social network site’s members to know more about Dealigg and everything it has to offer. But the actual Dealigg.com site does not currently have a forum yet where users and shoppers can talk about deals, discounts, coupons, and everything else about shopping.
