If you have not heard yet, the Kalatu Blogging Platform is in Beta Testing Phase and is expected to be officially released to the masses in early 2015. This is Empower Networks third version of their viral blogging platform.
The first version of Empower Network’s blog (EN1) used the WordPress platform and within a month they had maxed out the WordPress server with the viral growth the company was experiencing. Many members reported their blog post ranking on the 1st page of Google for searches.
The second version of Empower Network’s blog (EN2) also known as Blog Beast was the company’s attempt to create their own blogging platform (Empower dropped the use of WordPress). The new platform was a complete disaster. Members reported a significant drop in search engine rankings.
Empower Network Founder, David Woods, would later admit that moving away from the WordPress platform was a mistake.
Kalatu is currently in beta testing phase
Empower Network Version 3 (EN3) is known as Kalatu. The new version marks the 3rd anniversary of the company and it’s also bringing multiple changes/improvements to their infrastructure. It is currently in beta testing with a select group of Empower Network members using it.
