Message from Webmaster: Editorial Guidelines, Content Quality & Copyright Policy: Be sure to tell us why you think your story, PR / listing or even an alliance proposal is something we should check out and respond with priority or interest. Remember: Unlike other hyped online (Portal or OTT Media) platforms, we stick to our self-regulations / policies since last 15 years, we do not approve just anything or compromise our own established value systems, cultural wisdom and humanitarian principles – for more bucks or fame.

Its a business, social, and economics portal, not a political site per se, though it may sound free politics for some lovers. Diverse readers are invited and should feel comfortable. When writing a comment or story, we check our political views at the door, so to speak. It’s OK to mention politicians and policy issues. It’s not OK to descend into partisan bickering. Also note that we do NOT publish sponsored posts.

We will not post 2 line press releases or just promo of your web links, NO paid advocacy sock-puppeting, be straight and open! Stick to content guidelines and terms published on each website. We get way too many of these, removed in bulk anyway. A self-pampered press release or your hyped company or personal profile are practically unverifiable content for us, and we want something BIG we can dig into or reasonably verify. We only consider only full length feature articles, web reviews and reports, editorials, real experiences, case studies related to Information Technology, Real Estate, Social Media, Software & Web Development, Telecom, Lifestyle, Search Engines, Digital economy and other trending topics.

You can provide interesting links and commentary on longer articles about web business and internet technology written elsewhere. If you just send in a little blurb saying “I like xyz.com and think they are great” we will not publish it. Find an article about that site and topic, your comments, reviews and provide the link, and we’re more likely to find it worth publishing. We will publish news that is new and recent. Keep these things in mind, and we look forward to your submissions.

Post FREE News Blogs, Articles and PRs. If you own a blog, we might also consider publishing your Site Feeds on this news portal, Register or login to submit your website feed JSON or XML.

Press Releases & News Stories: It’s important to understand what we look for in a press release. Our press release guidelines are designed help your news get fast approval and distribution. Use of our content distribution network sites is subject to these guidelines and site specific Terms of Service.

News or PR Style – Style is the way you establish credibility with your audience. Credibility is key to effective communication. News style is used for writing press releases. It encompasses vocabulary, sentence structure, and how you present the information to your audience in terms of relative importance and tone.

Inverted Pyramid Structure – Inverted pyramid structure means writing from most important to least important facts and answering the following questions: Who? What? When? Where? Why? How?

Tone – Your mission is to establish credibility with your audience so that it sees your message as truthful, reliable, and believable. The tone of your press release plays a large role in establishing it’s credibility.

A press release should never sound like an advertisement or PR stunt. It shouldn’t include any claims of your product or service as being revolutionary, amazing, out of the world. Use of upper case characters to create emphasis and exclamation marks is a sign of hyperbole. Remember, news writing is not copy-writing.

Quotes – News is written in third person. The only time your press release should contain pronouns such as “I,” “we,” “us,” “you,” “your,” etc. is when you are quoting a spokesperson. Opinions should only be expressed inside quotation marks.

Active Words, Strong Words, and Phrases – Use active words to make your writing more interesting. Use strong words and phrases that engage the reader’s attention.
