A new era at The Washington Post

When Jeff Bezos bought the legendary Washington-based newspaper, many questioned how involved the Amazon tycoon would be in the paper’s daily dealings. Vice President-at-large Len Downie, who worked at the paper for 44 years, joins Sesno to give his two cents on the Post’s future.

    When you're attempting to maximize your site for search engines like google, don't overlook community search phrases such as the brand of your area or streets. A lot of people include these terms if they are looking for enterprises in close proximity to them, so you may turn out capturing more visitors than you might have or else.

    You have to keep your sanitation when outdoor camping. Excellent personal hygiene is actually difficult if you are camping out at times, but you can keep your self thoroughly clean. A jar of palm sanitizer is great to have so you can nice and clean hands before having. Also you can use rubbing alcoholic beverages on locations of your body which are not hypersensitive. A mild naturally degradable soap as well as a sponge may be used to get little-bathing when h2o sources are low.

    Here is two ideas Mr Bezos could use to increase traffic on the WaPo website.
    --
    First, get the software used by a journalism website (Fair dot org) that immediately displays a pop-up when someone moves their mouse over a headline. Their pop-ups display a one or two sentence opening paragraph of the article that was written for the headline. But if the WaPo would display at least five or six paragraphs in their pop-ups then more people would click on more headlines and see more advertising. It would also bring back the art of writing killer inverted pyramids. Second, the WaPo website should be programmed so a second window opens up every time someone clicks on a headline. The time that is consumed after clicking on an article is not a deterrent to reading the article. But clicking to go back to the home page is a deterrent. Especially when a reader decides that the article was not worth reading. His dissatisfaction is greatly magnified while waiting to got back to the home page. And that small displeasure becomes a subconscious deterrent to clicking on any headline.. This is why more newspaper articles are read when a reader can look at all of the articles just by turning the pages that he is holding in his hands. It is so much quicker. But my ideas will never be implemented because journalists are too narcissistic to listen to someone who doesn't have as much prestige as they do.
