people who are following the blog posts of the Perl community
or who are reading the Perl Weekly might know the recent
uproar regarding the level of Perl tutorials Google and other search
engines bring as the top results.

As a response a new web site was set up to recommend
the good tutorials. Besides the manual reviewing of the tutorials
it also provide a rudimentary measurement of popularity showing
the number of G+1s and the number of Tweet.

Here is the snapshot of http://perl-tutorial.org/

What I'd like to ask you is to go to this web site,
select the tutorials you like and click on the Google +1.
If you also have Twitter then, please also tweet about
the tutorial.

Especially I'd like to see the "Hebrew Perl Tutorial" of Shmuel
get some more love and of course I would not complain to
get further clicks for my own tutorial :)
