For the past year and a half, I haven't been able to pick up a magazine, open a newspaper or visit a major news website without coming across an article praising Houston for something or another
Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 28, 2009
The city of Houston seems to be at the top of everyone's 'Best of' lists in a recent compilation by local Houston internet marketing company Zizinya Web Solutions.
Several major publications have cited Houston as the top U.S. metropolitan city to live and work based on multiple ranking criteria. Factors considered include the real estate market, employment, job growth, quality of medical care, manufacturing, accessibility for the disabled, population growth and more.
Dubbed the energy capital of the U.S. and boasting the largest medical center in the world, the city of Houston is weathering the economic downturn better than most. The Port of Houston is the second largest in the nation and continues to serve as a catalyst for the city's business growth. Houston is also home to 27 Fortune 500 companies, second only to New York City.
Editors at Zizinya, the local company that maintains the comprehensive list of references to Houston in the news, didn't have to look very hard when gathering news articles, reports and statistics for their compilation.
"For the past year and a half, I haven't been able to pick up a magazine, open a newspaper or visit a major news website without coming across an article praising Houston for something or another," says Zizinya founder Shareef Defrawi. "It really is quite amazing how Houston has managed to get it right. As a native Houstonian, I feel obligated to share the city's amazing success story with the world."
The Greater Houston Partnership (http://www.houston.org) originally published a list of articles that referenced Houston as a top US city for manufacturing, real estate, employment and more.
"We just took their list and expanded on it," says Shareef. "We tracked down and linked directly to all of the original publications, and we added more articles that featured Houston in the news."
The publisher's goal is to promote business and economic development in Houston with the creation of a central resource for anyone who is interested in learning about the city and its monumental standing in the global landscape.
Business articles, statistical reports, socioeconomic surveys and many other industry specific data are added to the page on a monthly basis. Future plans by the company include the implementation of a distribution list to deliver the latest Houston rankings and business news directly to subscribers.
