About.com lives up to its name, telling you about absolutely anything you’re looking for. Upon visiting the homepage, you’ll be faced with trending articles, ranging from lifestyle to finance to fashion, plus neatly categorised sections offering tips on the home, food, health, style, money, careers, technology, education and travel, so it’s likely there’s something you’re interested in reading about.

The articles are written by a vast range of contributors, all knowledgeable in their respective fields, allowing them to publish the best advice and information that’ll help you expand your understanding of a particular topic.
The articles range from serious and cutting-edge to fun and playful, offering something for every mood, and you may find yourself stumbling across articles you never knew you needed, for example “6 Holiday Hazards to Watch Out For”. Who knew a Christmas Tree could be so perilous?

About.com often appears in Google searches while looking for recipes or how-to articles, proving its popularity. It's well laid out and in my experience, it's been easy to find relevant information, whether I'm browsing a general topic or searching for specific advice.

I’d recommend the site completely, as it’s a great, free source of information.

too many spam sites and broken links displayed, they need to clean up the search results other than traffic-related sites displayed on the first page. how about they request additional info at the search text entry.

I like this company. Their professional staff and advisers always provide quality services. Booking and related to it processes take not more than several business days, that's why I can consult them right before my trips. Recommend it!
