Stay.com and SeatGuru included in Time’s 50 Best websites of 2010 List

Two travel sites have been included in Time magazine’s exclusive list of 50 best websites of 2010, a yearly selection of the best the Internet has to offer, “from the helpful to the distracting, the big hitters to the unknown”.

Time’s yearly list, described by the magazine as an attempt to create a road map of the top resources on the Internet, including the top players that entertain, help or inform web surfers, selects 5 top websites in ten different categories: Music and Video, Sports, News and Info, Financial & Productivity, Shopping and Travel, Health and Fitness, Social Media, Games, Education, Family and Kids.

Stay.com and SeatGuru are the only travel sites included in this year’s list, making it to the Shopping and Travel category. Online social travel planner Stay.com that has launched its public Beta 2.0 this summer in June was included for its unique customized travel guides which users can create by adding the hotels, attractions, restaurants and other venues they plan to visit or stay at in their future trip and then share with friends, family and other online or offline acquaintances.

SeatGuru is a clever site that helps travelers avoid the bad seats in the plan (such as those right next to the toilet). The website mapped out the seating chart of all commercial planes and marked which seats their users should book and which to avoid.

I wholeheartedly hope that next year travel sites will outnumber shopping ones in Time’s exclusive 50 Best Websites list!
