Looksmart to Liberate Premium Magazine Content from Hundreds of Publications


A new blog (OK it\'s a plug for my new weblog) called Traffick Notes passes on today\'s announcement from Looksmart: it plans to distribute a great deal of proprietary and premium content: magazine and periodical articles, reports, etc. for free through its distribution partners (which include Excite, Altavista, Time Warner, Netzero, etc.). Boy, this global media business can get confusing.

Later this year, the premium magazine content will be integrated into search results.

PS: you might want to bookmark Traffick Notes, \"a notepad where Traffick staffers come to share daily observations\" about the areas we cover: portals, search trends, browsing, and new economy trends.
