Marcy Sterner Gineris replied to Dan Demmons's discussion Web Editor Policies- when is enough, enough?
"We also have a standard content design and when editors step outside of the standard a number of times I will schedule a meeting with that editor and see if there's a better fit. Again, it comes down to 1:1 conversation at our…"

Marcy Sterner Gineris replied to Patrick Yursik's discussion Digital Magazines / Publishing Platform
"We used ISSUU for a number of years but moved away for a variety of reasons. We created a WP-based blog platform for our two university magazines and are pleased with it in several ways. Increased interactivity and ease of image-sharing are two that…"

Thoughts on Google Panda?

I've been considering how Panda might impact what I do within the content on our website. In the end, I really think it will simply push me to strive for highest possible quality of content, which is a good thing! I think it will have more implications for our web designer, who works with unique tracking and the rest of our analytics efforts. Anyone have any thoughts?

Marcy Sterner Gineris replied to Kristina Hickman's discussion Website Department
