New York, NY (PRWEB) November 17, 2010
CityNext Content Network, a platform for text content distribution, has completed their final phase of development allowing writers to distribute articles using a newly-designed, cutting-edge writer user interface.
OVER ONE MILLION ARTICLE WEBSITES
A new report compiled by CityNext staff shows over 1.3M different article websites. The list was developed by CityNext consultant John Eagleton and was created by compiling and analyzing high-traffic websites through the Alexa web ranking service.
"The sheer amount of bad article websites was staggering," said Eagleton, adding, "Poor user interfaces, blocks of text, duplicated text, no image creative, and 99% of them are all cookie-cutter-type websites that are designed only for search engine optimization purposes."
ACCORDING TO STUDY, READERS NEEDS NOT BEING FULFILLED
Because there is a real need for informative, original written content, CityNext performed a reader satisfaction study that showed the following data:
Sample Size: 377 Respondents
1. 78% reported their article reading experience as 'unsatisfactory' (294 respondents)
2. 91% reported that they could not find what they were looking for (343 respondents)
3. 64% reported that article websites were confusing and/or hard to navigate (241 repondents)
CITYNEXT CONTENT NETWORK LAUNCHES TO FILL THE GAP
Already popular with writers, CityNext Content Network had a difficult decision to make. Either keep the existing dated website design and its 120,000+ pieces of sub-standard content, or erase everything and start over.
They chose to start over. Redesigned from scratch, CityNext development staff worked to create a writer interface that solved many of the problems that writers face when submitting content: formatting and image insertion.
"We created a special solution that allows writers to insert an image and automatically crop that image to pre-selected dimensions that perfectly format the piece," said Eagleton. "This allows the writer to simply write and not mess with image re-sizing and formatting through 3rd party software. We also made it so the images are uploaded to the Content Delivery System rather than forcing the writer to host their own supporting image creative."
According to Eagleton, all they need now is good writers who have something to promote.
THE HUNT FOR GOOD WRITERS
"One of the hardest things about launching a content delivery platform is the quest to find good writers who have something to promote," said Eagleton. "Our CityNext website property has excellent Google reputation and writers will see a substantial boost in their search engine rankings by creating their articles with us."
While there are millions of writers, only a small percentage hold a high moral standard and write good, original pieces.
"We're looking for people who are looking for promote their website's products or services. They can register as a new writer by visiting http://citynext.com/user/register and completing the brief application."
CityNext has leveraged Google's Feedburner RSS distribution platform which allows near-instant indexing of submitted content. You can view their RSS feed at http://feeds.feedburner.com/CityNext.
