Inside the Online World - November 2010
In 2005, at ad:tech New York, Website Magazine officially launched.
In the five years since then we have come to be known worldwide
as a respected and reliable resource for Web professionals; helping
well over 100,000 websites become more successful. We are, after
all, “The Magazine for Web Success.”
The best part of Website Magazine, however, is our audience. By sharing your insights, questions and criticisms along the way, this publication has become more valuable than we ever thought possible. Thank you. The future is bright and we know the next five years will be even better than the first. Our November 2010 issue is a testament to the quality of insights, techniques, commentary and tactics we continue to bring our readers each month.
The feature story in our inaugural issue was “Yahoo! vs. Google” and highlighted some of the key differences between those two search engines. The Web has changed dramatically since then, however, and while Google and Yahoo! still deserve their share of attention and respect, there are new players in the power struggle for users’ attention.
If there’s one hot trend on the Web these days, it’s social networking, specifically Facebook. And if our readers want to know one thing about Facebook, it’s how to make money using it. Contributor Jay Feitlinger shares his insights into how to make that happen with 500 Million Ways to Make Money From Facebook.
In addition to this article, our regular monthly contributors Tim Ash, Heather Lutze and Dante Monteverde are joined by Mathew Poepsel, discussing browser performance, Darren Guarnaccia, addressing websites as a customer intelligence tool, Guillermo Cedillo on the Principles of Design, Jamie Fortunaso sharing insights on mobile marketing and returning contributor and Website Magazine reader favorite Mike Evans, on keyword research techniques.
