What Happened?

Welcome to Knowem.com – originally known as “CheckUsernames.com”.

We still have the same team working on the site, same code and same great ideas. We just felt a little boxed in with using the CheckUsernames.com domain. We have a lot of plans for this site and we are happy to announce our first two large improvements / updates.

We launched CheckUsernames.com 2 days after Jon Sikes took down the original site (UsernameCheck.com), we spoke to Jon and he was impressed with what we had done, so he listed our site first on his clones list page. At that time we checked over 80 different sites for user name availability. We shortly after pushed the number up to 104 – Now we are happy to announce we monitor a grand total of 120 different sites.

Unlike some of the competition that has came out we do not kick false positives or negatives and actually give a damn about the site and what we are trying to do with it. (not just slap pictures of ourselves on the homepage for a quick ego boost)

Now onto the good stuff, the new premium services that we are offering.

Sign up done on all 120 sites.

Yes, that’s right, we can sign you up on all 120 sites.

We launched this feature into a private beta on Monday April 13th to some of our friends in the SEM/SEO industry and the response we got was tremendous! So we are now officially releasing it to the general public. Starting at the low cost of $69.95 our team will actually sign you up and create accounts on social networks. We are not automating this process because we do not want to violate any of the terms of service of the sites that are being signed up for.

Subscription Sign up Service

While doing research and getting emails from hundreds of site owners we have compiled a list of over 2000 sites that allow you to have a profile and a user name. For a low monthly fee of $50 (per user name) we will sign you up for a minimum of 10 new sites a month. To learn more about this service check out our FAQ our signup for our subscription service – its what we are most excited about.

So that is what we have been up to, we have some more stuff in the works, but we can’t talk about it yet šŸ™‚

    I wrote about your service last year (http://tinyurl.com/56x2jt) and want to congratulate you on your growth. I think your service is not only innovative but essential in these days and times.

    Do you have time for a quick phone interview? I want to record it and use it in my new show – “Your Internet Coach.” Check out some episodes here: http://tinyurl.com/cmalbh

    Hope to hear from you soon.
