We just reviewed an announcement from Twitter congratulating us on completing our 1st year with them, and what a year! In just 12 months Communal News has made online publishing of news and blogs available to everyone. The growth has been so robust we believe in just over one year CN achieved something very rare and very special in the Internet business– it’s called the Network Effect.
The Communal News (CN) platform of free and easy news publishing, available to global freelance writers, is growing. The CN website is expanding exponentially in many key metrics: Visitors, Articles Published, Page Views, Referral Websites, and Search Engine Referrals. Thanks to you, the readers and writers, our future looks very bright.
Communal News is proud to announce we will soon open a market for freelance professional services at our sister site Communal Freelance Gig Market Place. Our goal at Communal Marketplace is similar with Communal News: to provide a robust meeting place on an open platform of services, for the lowest overall total cost to the online freelance communities.
Communal News has made it easy and painless to publish news. The cost is only a little of your time. It takes just a few minutes to set up your contributor account and then you can published at will! We encourage you to write a real, detailed biography, because often after a couple of articles, the biography is published on Google News too! So when we say “set up your bio as if your mother might read it,” well, your mother really might read it.
One of the first things you’re taught in journalism class is to never make yourselves the story. Yet, here we stand, facing a sensitive content warning on our Twitter page. We have seen no reason why Twitter has specifically target us. We have close to 700 contributors on a open platform, which no matter the subject or politics, if the article is well written and fact-based, we have published it. We have published roughly 240 articles this month, and we can not identify any sensitive or graphic image in any of these articles.
We believe it is wrong for Twitter to filter the news, or pick one article out of a wide range of diversified posts, and say that news story is over the line. We are an open platform that publishes the news the public selects. The vast majority of Twitter users do not want the news filtered for them by Silicon Valley, and certainly do not want an open news platform to be suppressed because it is willing to publish all sides of every story. At this point we have seen no email or reason why Communal News is being censored.
Matt Drudge gave a speech before the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. in 1998. He was already deemed an internet leader in both news and aggregated news distribution. His Drudge Report challenged the ethos of the newspaper society, which was just the beginning of dynamic revolutionary change in the news world order. The Drudge Report made friends, added enemies, created new futures and helped forced everyone in the industry to change many times over in order just to stay relevant.
Welcome to our very fast growing open platform of news and general articles called Communal News. We are not sure what part of our business is growing faster: our readership; the website referrals; or new contributors. Either way we’re seeing fast enterprise-wide growth of our free services.
You might ask why we take four more steps than your usual contribution services.
Communal News is now offering Publisher Direct Native Advertising (PDNA)
Possibly one of the most challenging questions for marketers is whether to buy Publisher Direct Advertising. The alternatives are to contact an ad network to purchase inventory from them (called a Direct Buy), or go through indirect channels using real-time bidding (RTB) like Google and Facebook. We believe Publisher Direct is a better, lower-cost model but, in addition, with Communal News your price performance makes this an outstanding value.
Communal News is one of the fastest growing free online digital platforms…where the readers have access to write on our open contributor platform. Between Communal News readers, Google News distribution, and distribution on all the main social media sites where people get their news, CN is the most open content publishing platform on the internet. We have added a wide variety of contributors (well over 600!) and in a very short time have seen over 2,000 articles published on the Communal News free online digital platform– not bad for a very new product launch!
