E-Mail Newsletters and Web-Based Advice

If you can bear the thought of yet more e-mail, there are many newsletters and discussion lists which bring expert advice and support direct to your in-box. Check out the supporting web site first: the best and most useful newsletters are those with searchable archives, and with careful use of those archives you could just avoid the in-box clutter. For those who regularly forget to check the most useful sites, a weekly reminder that nudges you gently may be just what is needed.

Mailbase Discussion Lists (http://www.mailbase.ac.uk)

There are many useful lists on Mailbase, mostly targeted at the academic sector but relevant for non-academics too. These include Web-support, Web-support-siteserver and Website-info-mgt. At the time of writing this service is migrating to JISCMail (http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk) and details of the lists and their subscription instructions may alter: check the current details for each list on the JISCMail or Mailbase sites.

Market Position Newsletter (http://www.webposition.com)

A monthly newsletter about the latest developments in submitting to search engines and designing for ranking on search engines. The supporting web site exists mainly to promote the software product WebPosition Gold, which checks web pages for keywords and tags, and generates HTML to assist in ranking and submission. Both site and software are very useful for understanding the changing requirements of search engines, and for seeing which search engine powers which directory or index.

WebProNews (http://www. WebProNews.com)

A monthly newsletter containing one in-depth article on an aspect of web design or promotion. It is typically about search engine promotion and ranking design, but also covers other related topics. An archive of previous articles makes this a useful research site.

iEntry Network (http://www.ientry.com)

A network of e-mail newsletters (and supporting web sites) targeted at web site designers, managers and marketers. Newsletters include
