The Web! The Web! The Web is Coming! (Again!)
Earlier this week, Ziff Davis launched smartcompany.com, a site targeting entrepreneurs, owners and technology professionals at small businesses. The company is designing the site with all of e-media’s bells and whistles: “SMBcasts, live interactive Web-based seminars on new technology and products; a weekly email newsletter, constant updates via RSS feed, and podcasts and video offerings are planned.”
On Tuesday, Penton Media launched CFO-targeted searchfinance.com, tapping into the buzzed-about online vertical search market.
Also Tuesday, New York relaunched its five-year-old website;the former URL-brand-confused nymetro.com;at nymag.com, promising “more original content to be phased in throughout 2006, a more navigable design, and expanded search and listings capabilities.”
“My goal is for nymag.com to have a strong relationship to the printed magazine, but it will not be identical,” said New York editor-in-chief Adam Moss of the launch, echoing a publishing sentiment as redundant as it is appropriate.
Mansueto Ventures’ Inc. rolled out a redesigned site on Wednesday that had been in the works for months, the company said. A redesign for Fast Company’s site is also slated.
