Today I noticed Qassia, a website so ambitious to be a knowledge repository – directly rivaling Wikipedia. What I really like about it is that it will credit the people who wrote in the knowledge, paying off your hard work instead of throwing it away to the society like Wikipedia (it’s not that charity is evil, but most people want to be known). The website says,
Qassia is fantastic because you get credit for sharing your intelligence. The more credit you earn, the better your websites will rank. And you get a backlink to your website for every intel you add – only Qassia gives you unlimited quality backlinks.
In other words, you can quality backlinks (perfect for SEO) by adding up more intelligence to the website. Also, they offer a revenue sharing scheme, which may give a boost on Google Adsense earnings.
If the concept of Qassia really rocks, it can be the next best thing after Wikipedia. It can also really build up money and fame if done right. Currently it is in closed beta, but feel free to use my Quassia invitation/invite! Let’s try this one and see whether it will work wonders.
