Press releases from Geographic Solutions and news about our clients' sites

The D.C. Department of Employment Services is proud to be designated as a "Key Resource" in the Labor Market Category by Links2Go, an online company based in Massachusetts which provides online businesses and end users with search and directory services. Their nationally acclaimed Internet Directory includes only the most highly cited links on the web.

Each quarter, Links2Go samples millions of web pages to determine which pages are most heavily used. The most popular pages are downloaded and automatically categorized by topic. At most, 50 of the pages related to a topic are selected as "Key Resources." We have been advised that out of 10 pages selected as Key Resources for the Labor Markets topic, the DOES Home Page, DCNetworks, ranked 7th. The method for selecting pages is outlined below, as communicated to us directly from Links2Go:

When Links2Go says your page is a Key Resource, we mean that your page is one of the most relevant pages related to a particular topic on the web today, using an objective statistical measure applied to an extremely large data set. We get literally hundreds of people requesting that their page be added to one or more topics per week. All of these requests are denied. The only way to get listed as a Key Resource is to achieve enough popularity for our analysis to select your pages automatically. We do not accept fees, offers of link exchanges, free advertising, or bartered livestock as inducements to add new sites to our lists. Fewer than one page in one thousand will ever be selected as a Key Resource.

We at the Department of Employment Services are proud to have had our web page recognized and continue to strive to bring you timely and relevant information about our services and employment, training and worker protection topics of interest.
