I’ve been watching a number of TV channels lately that offer some sort of information news ticker at the bottom of their screens. The reason I like them is because they offer timely and relevant information that you can’t get anywhere else. It’s not just television stations that have this feature available. Many newspapers, magazines and web sites are starting to do this as well. And the good news for all of us is that it’s free to use. So why not take advantage of this free information source right?
Now, the question is how do you find one of these websites. Simple, just Google “information news” and you will find literally thousands of results. Try narrowing down the search by looking at the ticker that best describes what you’re looking for. For example, if you want to read about international politics, try typing in something like “world political system”. If you don’t know what that means, you can just enter “world political system” into the search engine.
The reason I suggest using your favorite search engine is because most of them have very relevant options and they are very easy to use. However, there are a couple of websites that you need to be careful about. One of those websites allows you to bookmark your favorite websites and share them with your friends. The problem with that is that those friends might have set up their own websites and would never want to see your own info news ticker on their own page.
That is why I would recommend reading other peoples websites and seeing what info news they publish. This way, you know that your website host is not limiting you to only what’s available through their service. You also know what info news they think is important and might be interesting to you. There’s another aspect to using your website host besides just publishing your own info news ticker. That is, you may want to consider offering your subscribers free content as well.
Some website hosts will only publish your content if you have also agreed to do some sharing of it. This is great news for those of you who enjoy creating new content and distributing it to others. You can also set up your own blog and get your website host to promote it for you.
It all depends on what you want to do with your website. You can simply use it as another outlet for your own info news ticker or you can offer your subscribers free information as well. No matter what you ultimately decide to do with your website, it’s best to keep it simple. Keep the overall design simple and the content limited to the informative stuff. Who knows, you might even get more people to visit your website when you add some video or audio files on your site. If you think that you would enjoy making videos or podcasting, then by all means, go for it and make your website even better than ever.
