Despite some difficulties, mainly related to the tightening of global copyright policies, our file search services continue to thrive, gaining new features and functionality! Like a phoenix we ready again and again rise from the ashes or at least move to the new domains, to keep giving you positive emotions from the use of one of the best file search services in the world - General Files. Must say, we did it 4 times already in the last six months. As you remember, from the beginning our home was on the general-files.com, from which we happily moved to generalfiles.org, and then to generalfiles.me. Today you may find us on general-files.org.
To look a bit more decently and not to attract too much attention from copyright owners, we had to do some changes. We decided to remove slides with popular files from the General Files main page. Also we had to shut down the General Torrents project, because many people associate torrents with piracy and copyright infringement. Despite the fact that we provide just a search tools, we had to do this. But there’s no need to worry, all torrents from General Torrents database had long been moved into General Files search results, so enjoy.
Well, it’s enough about negative news. There are much more good things has happened on the General World this week. Let’s start with General Files, which has considerably improved to become more user friendly than ever!
We improved algorithm of search results ranking, and algorithm of tips as well, so now file searching process has become much easier and more efficient. Plus, we removed some inefficient file hosting websites, like Onread.com, and added new perspective ones. We also implemented a new mechanism of re-search. If your search specified by filters brings no results, our system will automatically repeat the search without filters. This is quite convenient because it increases your chances to find the file you need.
We have also improved mechanism of alerts system. Now when you subscribe to alert, it will only work with newly added results, ignoring existing ones in the database. This will prevent the problem of false positives that you previously reported us.
We manually moved tens of thousands of scattered hot files into the adult category, so they won’t pop up in the search queries where they don’t need to pop up. But don’t worry, this would have no impact on a variety of adult files. Authorized users, as before will be able to find all the passionate content with ease.
Probably you’ve already mentioned, how we renewed the Detailed page on General Files. We removed the redundant tabs that overload the page, added posters and grouped blocks by importance so that it can be more convenient to use them. Now, certainly, no one will miss the big blue Download button!
