One of the greatest benefits of the Internet is your ability to archive your editorial. Certainly your Web visitor can search your editorial by word, but often they are looking for an item they saw on a particular date.
The public sees your archive dates and the lead stories (click for larger version)
With Linear Publishing, your editorial is archived by date in a descending order. With each issue date, there is a brief list of the top stories from the front page. By clicking on the date, your reader is taken to that issue as it was published.
Essentially, the archiving process is automatic. Whenever you advance to the new issue, the old issue is added to the archives. The process takes about 15 seconds.
The value of your Internet site compounds as the information you produce accumulates on your Web site. As your Web visitors can search your archives, obituaries, editorial lists and more -- your value on the Internet increases. Of course, the archives can also be entirely subscriber based.
Use Linear Publishing to enter and archive issues from the past. Keep in mind, at approximately 10 seconds per editorial item, you can put up a past issue in no time at all.
